American Oxygen - Rihanna

Speed: 79 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm

The DJ's Take: I think the producer got a little carried away with the distorted sound - would be interesting to hear how it'd translate on a big audio system (had to make sure this wasn't some pirated version). Key & bpm-wise, I think it could go well with Messin' Around - Pitbull ft. Enrique Iglesias, Live Your Life - T.I. ft Rihanna, I'm On One - DJ Khaled, and Miss Me - Drake.

Bump up to about 83 bpm and tracks like Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner, Paper Planes - MIA, Royals - Lorde, The Man - Aloe Blacc, and Irresistible - Fall Out Boy should work.
