The Heart Wants What It Wants - Selena Gomez



Speed: 83 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

The DJ's Take: Saw this trending somewhere, clicked the link against my better judgment, and you know what? Even though she looks like she's 14, there's actually a mature sound here (those guitars after she says 'the heart wants what it wants' are kind of a nice touch). This is end of the night fare, but something a younger crowd will recognize - we'll see if it gets popular enough for 20-something females to start singing along. Try mixing/mashing up with Bounce - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne, Gotta Lotta - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne, See You Again - Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth, Love The Way You Lie - Eminem ft. Rihanna, Irreplaceable - BeyoncĂ©, Come & Get It - Selena Gomez, and Started From The Bottom - Drake.

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

4th of July (Fireworks) - Kelis

tempo: 124 bpm the DJ's take: In terms of energy and key/note progression, I feel like this one could go well with Ne-Yo's Let's Go , Bingo Players' Cry Just A Little , Flo Rida's I Cry , and maybe the Day N Nite - Crookers Remix . Fast and danceable, with a buzzy, hypnotic bass. Definitely worth a spin in a poolside dance mix. download or stream 4th of July (Fireworks): amazon dj cheat sheet playlist
