Dance Like We're Making Love - Ciara

Speed: 96 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: It's been a minute since I heard some good R&B, and this one fits the bill. There's a quiet, driving intensity in the beat, and I like how the percussion switches up a bit during the bridge. That takes some thought - Dr. Luke certainly earned his ducats here.

If you're looking for something key-compatible to mix or mash up with, try tracks like:

Lean On - Major Lazer and DJ Snake
Tonight (Best You Ever Had) - John Legend
Let Me Love You - Mario
Girls Around The World - Lloyd ft. Lil Wayne
Magnificent - Rick Ross
Left, Right - YG
