Jump - Rihanna

Speed: 81 bpm

The DJ's Take: Here's an interesting question - where does this rank all-time among songs with the title 'Jump'? Compared to a couple off the top of my head (Van Halen and Kriss Kross), I'd say it holds its own. That buildup and breakdown is nice. So what if it isn't 125 bpm - even I could get down to this (provided my 30-something body didn't break down in the process).

And in case you were wondering - yes, that chorus is from Ginuwine's Pony.
