A Place With No Name - Michael Jackson

Speed: 119 bpm The DJ's Take: After hearing the last couple of MJ singles, I have to say this is a little more like it. Could be a legit hit with staying power beyond 'OMG - it's new Michael Jackson!' If you're staying reasonably key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like Bright Lights Bigger City - CeeLo , Get Lucky - Daft Punk , COOL - Le Youth , Wasted - Tiesto , White Walls - Macklemore , and Wild Wild Love - Pitbull . Download the song: Amazon:  A Place With No Name

No Love - August Alsina ft. Nicki Minaj

Speed: 65.5 bpm The DJ's Take: Straight end-of-the-night music here. You may want to avoid if it's an all-Caucasian crowd, but not a bad way to wrap things up otherwise. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like Climax - Usher , On My Level - Wiz Khalifa ft. Too Short , Give Me A Try - Sizzla , Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P , and Say My Name - Destiny's Child . You can also slow down a little and go into Bed - J. Holiday . Download the song: Amazon:  No Love [feat. Nicki Minaj] [Explicit]

Best Mistake - Ariana Grande ft. Big Sean

Speed: 72 bpm The DJ's Take: Sure, this is pillow talk music, but you figure this'll make at least a quick trip to the Top 10 of some major chart, right? Given the low energy level, this is something you close a gig with. To stay key-compatible, try blending with tracks like New Flame - Chris Brown , Rude - MAGIC! , Dark Horse , Drunk In Love , and/or All Of The Lights . Download the song:
