Somebody Else - Mario ft. Nicki Minaj



Speed: 91 bpm

The DJ's Take: You know how sometimes you hear a cool song on Pandora, but you're not really paying attention to the title or artist, you forget about it for a couple months, and then it pops up again in a sidebar on YouTube? Pretty much sums this track up for me. That sample is on point, vocals are the tightest I've heard from Mario in awhile, and Nicki Minaj doesn't get in the way. I think this could've been a mainstream hit 10 years ago.

Now, it's more of a niche single you play for an urban crowd that can get down to hiphop-flavored R&B. Reminds me a lot of Faith Evans & Carl Thomas' Can't Believe both key and bpm wise, although the drums hit a little harder. I think this could also go nicely with something like Adorn - Miguel if you're looking to stay a little more modern. Other potentially mixable tracks include Numb - August Alsina, Swerve - Sage the Gemini, Show Me - Kid Ink, Diamonds - Rihanna, and She Ain't You - Chris Brown.
