Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly

Speed: 90 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: I feel like one day, Tori Kelly can be a pop star; she just hasn't found the right song yet. This one feels like half a hit (or maybe I'm just prejudiced against tracks that don't even make an attempt at a bridge). All that said, it's easy on the ears, and you can mix with some or all of the following:

You Be Killin Em - Fabolous, It Girl - Pharrell, Magic - Coldplay, Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes, You're All I Need - Method Man & Mary J. Blige, Baby Baby Baby - TLC, Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang, Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo, Airplanes - B.o.B, Find Your Love - Drake, Flashing Lights - Kanye West, Replay - IYAZ, Renée - Lost Boyz
