Know Ya - Ty Dolla $ign ft. Trey Songz



Speed: 68 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: I'm a little confused - is Ty Dolla $ign supposed to be a rapper or a singer? Hmm... let's just call him a ringer. This one feels like something R. Kelly would do; has a nice little bounce to it. Keep in mind there are lengthy portions with talking at the beginning (very reminiscent of the original version of Biggie's One More Chance) and end, so watch for that.

On a side note, some advice to the younger guys out there - if you just started dating a girl and she's making you take it slow, this track represents one potential scenario she's worried about. Or she could just be playing you. So good luck with that.

Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like White Iverson - Post Malone, Gold Bottles - Jeezy, Big Rings - Drake & Future, Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber, Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj, Lips Are Movin - Meghan TrainorX - Chris BrownCan't Hold Us - Macklemore and Ryan LewisDay N Nite - Kid Cudi, Big Pimpin - Jay-Z, and Feel This Moment - Pitbull.

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.
