Be Real - Kid Ink ft. DeJ Loaf

Speed: 100 bpm The DJ's Take: Heard this on the radio for the first time today, and it reminded me of a harder version of I Wanna Love You - Akon ft. Snoop Dogg . In fact, they're the same bpm, so that's a nice little key-compatible mix/mashup right there. Definite head-nodder - DJ Mustard and Kid Ink took it up a notch with this one, and DeJ Loaf delivers the earworm hook that can elevate an aspiring hit. If you're getting up near 105 bpm , try mixing with Somebody - Natalie La Rose ft. Jeremih and Whistle - Flo Rida . If you're staying around 95 - 100 bpm , try mixing or mashing up with Na Na - Trey Songz , Who Do You Love? (feat. Drake) - YG and Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign (i.e. similar-sounding beats from the same producer). Download the song: Amazon: Be Real [Explicit]

All My Love (ft. Ariana Grande and Machel Montano) [Remix] - Major Lazer

Speed: 115 bpm Recommended bpm range:   110  to  115 bpm ,  115  to  120 bpm The DJ's Take: A little over-caffeinated for my almost middle-aged ears. That said, you've got Ariana Grande vocals and a tropical beat - shouldn't that translate into a summer hit with tweens, teens, and early twenty-somethings? Her marketing team needs to get on that ASAP. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like: I Don't Like It, I Love It - Flo Rida Love Never Felt So Good - Michael Jackson Motown Philly - Boyz II Men Tik Tok - Ke$ha Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars Download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music Amazon
