X - Chris Brown

Speed: 74 bpm The DJ's Take: Interesting buildup with a futuristic bounce. I could see the dance floor getting active when the drop comes. Worth a download for your new music collection. Try mixing (or mashing up) with tracks like Can't Hold Us - Macklemore and Ryan Lewis , Day N Nite - Kid Cudi and Big Pimpin - Jay-Z . Download the song: Amazon: X - Chris Brown

Guts Over Fear - Eminem ft. Sia

Speed: 70 bpm The DJ's Take: Not exactly a dancefloor banger, but it's new Eminem featuring Sia, so it's worth paying attention to. I could see people nodding their heads to this in a sit-down bar environment. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with some or all of the following: Best Mistake - Ariana Grande , New Flame - Chris Brown , Rude - MAGIC! , Dark Horse , Drunk In Love , and/or All Of The Lights . Download the song: Amazon: Guts Over Fear [feat. Sia] [Explicit]

Animals - Maroon 5

Speed: 95 bpm Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm , 95 to 100 bpm The DJ's Take: Kind of sounds like a slower version of Misery , doesn't it? For now, probably more elevator music/opening material, but if it keeps getting buzz and downloads, this could become a more important part of your playlist. For a key-compatible mix, try blending with tracks like YOUTH - Troye Sivan , Company - Justin Bieber , Misery - Gwen Stefani , 0 To 100 - Drake , Bailando - Enrique Iglesias , Partition - BeyoncĂ© , Show Me - Kid Ink ,  Killing Me Softly - Fugees ,  Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep , Na Na - Trey Songz , Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign , Return of the Mack - Mark Morrison , One More Chance - Notorious BIG , No Games - Serani , Real Love - Mary J. Blige , You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa , and maybe This Is How We Do - Katy Perry . If you're going up toward 100 bpm, Team - Iggy Azalea and Turn Down For What - DJ Snake & Lil Jon should work.
