Post To Be - Omarion ft. Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko

Speed: 97.5 bpm The DJ's Take: Not really a fan - this one sounds a little juvenile; reminds me a lot of Body Language . But it's a DJ Mustard track making a strong move up the charts, so may be a worth a spot in your new music playlist. If you're gonna mix or mash up with something key-compatible, I'd consider F**kin' Problems . Lose Yourself To Dance could work too. Probably won't blow your crowd away, but should have a shelf-life of at least a few weeks. Download the song: Amazon: Post To Be (feat. Chris Brown & Jhene Aiko) [Explicit]

10 Bands - Drake

Speed: 87 bpm The DJ's Take: If there's one rapper from the modern generation whose music we may be calling classic one day, it's Drake. Great single to spin in an NYC hiphop club or bar - head-noddable beat that's hard yet sharp and refined, and flowing vocals with sing-alongable, catchy hooks that don't sound like amateur nursery rhymes. Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like Irresistible - Fall Out Boy , The Man - Aloe Blacc , Live Your Life - T.I. ft. Rihanna , Paper Planes - MIA , Royals - Lorde . If you want to speed up a couple bpm's, consider blending with songs like Adorn - Miguel , Diamonds - Rihanna , and Jealous - Nick Jonas . Download the song: Amazon: 10 Bands [Explicit]

I Want You To Know - Zedd ft. Selena Gomez

Speed: 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Seems like EDM isn't the flavor of the month anymore in pop music, but that doesn't mean we can't use a good fist-pumping single every once in awhile. Assuming this gets the radio play you figure it would, your crowd should recognize the names and the style. If you're operating at 130 bpm and the people like the vibe, this is worth a spin. Stay key-compatible and consider mixing with tracks like Light Years Away (feat. DBX) - Tiesto ,  The Days - Avicii ,  Prayer In C - Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz ,  Lay Me Down - Avicii ,  Adore You - Miley Cyrus (Cedric Gervais Remix) ,  Ten Feet Tall - Afrojack ,  Take Me - Tiesto ,  We Run The Night - Havana Brown ft. Pitbull ,  Marry The Night - Lady Gaga ,  Club Can't Handle Me - Flo Rida ,  Danza Kuduro - Don Omar ,  Shut It Down - Pitbull ft. Akon ,  F*ck You - Ceelo Green ,  Push It - Salt N Pepa ,  U Can't Touch This - MC Hammer , and  Right Round - Flo Rida .
