Tell Your Friends - The Weeknd



Speed: 75 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm, 75 bpm to 80 bpm

The DJ's Take: With that light, effeminate voice, it's interesting to listen to the explicit bravado in the lyrics. Almost like Tracy Chapman re-interpreting a gangsta rap track. The beat is something you might hear in a high-class, low-key cocktail lounge as you're sipping on the last martini of the evening. That said, it's The Weeknd, which means an obligatory download for the new music folder.

Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan, Collard Greens - SchoolBoy Q, No Sleep - Wiz Khalifa, and Halo - Beyoncé.
