Team - Lorde

Speed: 100 bpm The DJ's Take: So I was holding off on covering Team because it felt like there was this ennui in the beat that only a hipster could love. But when a track is knocking on the door of Billboard's Top 10, it's probably time to give in. Plus, the percussion has some hiphop flavor in there. If you want to get a little unconventional while staying key-compatible, try mixing with Loyal - Chris Brown and U Know What's Up - Donell Jones . Download the song: Amazon:

Can't Remember To Forget You - Shakira ft. Rihanna

Speed: 138 bpm The DJ's Take: Somehow I feel like this is a better fit for a ladies' jeans commercial (or an ad for a vacation destination) than a club. But by virtue of the artists involved, it's worth a download if you're a Top 40 dj. Here's a key-compatible mix/mashup recommendation from left field - Endorphins by Sub Focus . And if you feel like halving the speed, try blending into Iz U Down , No Option , Pop That , and/or Pour It Up . What do you think of Can't Remember To Forget You? Love it It's ok Don't like it free polls   Download the song: Amazon:

Main Chick - Kid Ink ft. Chris Brown

Chris Brown - Main Chick (Prod by DJ Mustard) Speed: 95 bpm The DJ's Take:  Can DJ Mustard sue himself for copyright infringement? Might as well call this  Show Me  (The Remix), and it sounds a lot like Paranoid too. Also consider mixing with Turn Down For What , Swerve , and/or Numb . Too easy. Download the song: Amazon:
