Right Now - Rihanna and David Guetta

Speed: 130 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Maybe it's just me, but I think the thought process here was 'make kids in tanktops pump fists and yell YOLO! as they pound Four Lokos.' And the execution is solid. Does this sound about as generic as you can get? You bet. But as we've learned, put a popular pairing together and people will forget the singer did a pretty similar track a couple years ago . Worth a download and spin.  Mix with: Booyah - Showtek , You Make Me - Avicii , On The Floor - Jennifer Lopez ft. Pitbull ,  Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke ,  Live For The Night - Krewella ,  Don't Stop The Party - Pitbull ,  We Found Love - Rihanna ft. Calvin Harris , S&M - Rihanna , Bulletproof - La Roux , Low - Flo Rida ft. T-Pain , Calabria - Enur Download the song: Amazon

Crazy Kids - Ke$ha ft.

Speed: 128 bpm Recommended bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Besides the opening guitars, doesn't this instrumental sound suspiciously like Like A G6 ? Then again, who really remembers that song anyway. Regardless of the #turrible rapping, I think this has hit potential, especially because of the artists. Grit your teeth and take it for a test drive at your next college Top 40 night. Download the song: Amazon
