Hot N*gga - Bobby Shmurda



Speed: 84 bpm

The DJ's Take: Good rule of thumb - when a song has its own dance, probably time to get it in your rotation. The beat is an ear worm (even if it did come from somewhere else), and there's a grim, gritty NYC vibe. I think it'd be kind of funny if you double-timed into Shake It Off, but if your crowd likes hiphop/hipPop, maybe transition into something like Black Widow (or Teach Me How To Dougie if you want to go straight percussion with no melody) then do work in that 80 to 85 bpm range.

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes
