Dear Future Husband - Meghan Trainor

Speed: 159 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 155 to 160 bpm

The DJ's Take: While I don't see doowop pop becoming any more than a passing novelty, it sure is working for Meghan Trainor. Hard to listen to if you're not a teenaged female, but a unique change of pace song and worth a download if you spin Top 40. The interesting thing here is the key change - maybe transition in with something like a slowed-down Miss Independent - NeYo and transition out with tracks like Live Your Life - Rihanna and Irresistible - Fall Out Boy (or Runaround Sue - Dion if you're spinning at the local sockhop). Then maybe you can gradually speed up and get into The Man - Aloe Blacc, Royals - Lorde and Paper Planes - MIA
