Hit the Quan - @iHeartMemphis

Speed: 80 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

The DJ's Take: I have a great idea for a reality TV show - take all the video clips of kids dancing to songs like this and show it to them in about 10 to 15 years (so for older generations, we're probably digging into the VHS archives). The embarrassment and looks of horror will make it a must-watch.

That said, with high schools and colleges opening up soon, you probably want to have this fad track on hand for potential requests. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like All Eyes On You - Meek Mill ft. Nicki Minaj & Chris Brown, Live Your Life - T.I. ft Rihanna, I'm On One - DJ Khaled, and Miss Me - Drake near the 80 bpm range, and Paper Planes - MIA, Royals - Lorde, and The Man - Aloe Blacc if you're closer to 85.
