Hey Mama - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj and Afrojack



tempo: 86 bpm

bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: If we're talking songs named Hey Mama, I'm partial to Kanye:



That said, this is a former Top 10 hit with a big presence. Worthy of being blasted in a Top 40 set or at a sporting event.

Some key-compatible tracks from 81 to 84 bpm:

I'm The One - DJ Khaled, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Chance The Rapper, Quavo
Just Like Fire - Pink
I Need A Girl - Trey Songz
Go Hard Or Go Home - Wiz Khalifa

And from 85 to 90:

Bad Blood - Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar
We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together - Taylor Swift
Hey Mama - David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj
Nobody Has To Know - Kranium ft. Ty Dolla $ign
Fight Song - Rachel Platten

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
