Back To Sleep - Chris Brown

tempo: 93 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #2 in our chapter 53 mix (1:52):

One of the rare examples where I'm going with the clean version over the explicit one. If you're generating a Marvin Gaye vibe, a smooth, gentler approach is the way to go, if you ask me.

Generous instrumental-only intro enables you to ease in. And on the back end, fits nicely with the intro to Biggie's One More Chance Remix. Decent choice for a hiphop / r&b night in a laidback, classier environment.

Some other key-compatible music:
