This Is How We Do - Katy Perry

Speed: 96 bpm

The DJ's Take: Rule of thumb - when a new Katy Perry single comes out, you should probably download it for the short-term 'new music' value and potential longer-term hit value. Not a bad track for your rotation, and the lyrics seem to speak to your target audience (college students and twenty-somethings). If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with Na Na - Trey Songz, Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign, Return of the Mack - Mark Morrison, One More Chance - Notorious BIG, No Games - Serani, and Real Love - Mary J. Blige. If you're transitioning into the 100 bpm range, Turn Down For What or Get Low - Dillon Francis & DJ Snake might be a nice jumping off point.
