Boom - Major Lazer & MOTi ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Wizkid and Kranium

Speed: 100 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm, 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: Don't know if this'll be a hit, but I'd have no problem throwing it on during a pop/hipPop set and seeing how the crowd responds. As the title suggests, the beat booms and should keep people dancing. And even if they start slowing down and give you a 'what the hell is this' look, you've got plenty of ways to recover with some key-compatible tracks, as you'll see below.

If you're in the 95 to 100 bpm range, try mixing with tracks like Lean On - Major Lazer and DJ Snake, Lush Life - Zara Larsson, Dance Like We're Making Love - Ciara, Left, Right - YG, My House - Flo Rida, Let Me Love You - Mario, and Girls Around The World - Lloyd ft. Lil Wayne.

If you're in the 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with tracks like Right Hand - Drake, Truffle Butter - Nicki Minaj, Yeah - Usher, La Nueva y La Ex - Daddy Yankee, and Fancy (Yellow Claw Remix).
