Hotline Bling - Drake

Speed: 67.5 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: Those thick guitar licks are hard to resist - makes me think of coconuts, females in bikinis, and drinks at the beach. Strong summer vibe, and people know the voice; try mixing or mashing up with No Type - Rae Sremmurd if you're staying key-compatible in the 65 bpm range.

Move up to 70 bpm and I recommend blending with tracks like Handsome and Wealthy - Migos, All I Do Is Win (feat. T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Rick Ross) - DJ Khaled, Holy Grail - Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake, and Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars.
