So Blue - Akon

Speed: 96 bpm

The DJ's Take: Had to dig around a little for this one, but certainly worth it. Just a good, solid track that could've been a hit a few years ago. Today? Tough to say. Probably not something you'll be playing in a club or even in a bar (unless it takes off in the coming months), but worth a spot in a mix tape with key-compatible songs like the following:

In the 90 to 95 bpm range: Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes, You're All I Need - Method Man & Mary J. Blige, Baby Baby Baby - TLC, Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo, Airplanes - B.o.B, Find Your Love - Drake, Flashing Lights - Kanye West, Replay - IYAZ, Renee - Lost Boyz

In the 95 to 100 bpm range: Do What U Want - Lady Gaga, Hold On, We're Going Home, What's My Name, Find Your LoveOpposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang

On a side note re: the video, is that Deebo from Friday? His scowl still kills me.
