Take Back The Night - Justin Timberlake

Speed: 108 bpm

The DJ's Take: Let's state the obvious - looks like the producers want to bring it back to the 70s/80s with some smoother pop R&B fit for an artist like MJ or Luther Vandross. But it's kind of a yawner; in fact, put Robin Thicke on vocals and I don't think there's much of a difference. That said, Take Back The Night's making a move up the charts, and dj's know that 65% of the time, the customer is always right.

If the energy's starting to wane, blend into something like Suit & Tie or The Motto.
