Used to Love You - Gwen Stefani



Speed: 96 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm, 95 to 100 bpm

The DJ's Take: I wonder how much of this song's current popularity is due to her gig as a judge on a singing show, millennials who remember Hollaback Girl, or Gen X/Y'ers like me who remember her from No Doubt. Maybe it's a combination of all 3. In any case, a cute little pop song the younger females in the crowd should be able to sing along to. Could be kind of fun to blend with Used to Love U - John Legend if you stretch bpm's.

Try mixing with tracks like The Fix - Nelly ft. Jeremih, Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye, Fancy - Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX, Creep - TLC, Honey - Mariah Carey, Where The Party At - Jagged Edge, What's Luv - Fat Joe, and T.I.'s Ball.

If you're going closer to 100 bpm, try mixing with About You - Trey Songz, You Know You Like It - DJ Snake and AlunaGeorge, Worth It - Fifth HarmonyStuck On A Feeling - Prince Royce, Electric Feel - MGMT, Sexual Healing - Maxamillion, and Get Low - Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz.

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
