Obsessed - Mariah Carey

tempo: 87 bpm bpm range:   85 bpm  to  90 bpm the DJ’s take:  This one came out around the time we all knew she was past her prime, and a single going #1 felt more like a lifetime achievement award than a referendum on relevance. The auto-tune on one of the great voices of all-time was the giveaway. Regardless, it's a club-friendly single that made its mark in the late 2000s. Worth a spin during the throwback portion of a pop set. Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like: First Time - Kygo, Ellie Goulding Versace On The Floor - Bruno Mars Two Birds, One Stone - Drake Waterfalls - TLC With You - Chris Brown Somethin Tells Me - Bryson Tiller Xxplosive [Explicit] - Dr. Dre ft. Nate Dogg Impatient - Jeremih ft. Ty Dolla $ign New Americana - Halsey Nobody To Love - Sigma Drankin' Patna - T-Pain How Many Drinks - Miguel Part II (On The Run) - Jay-Z ft. BeyoncĂ© Me and My Broken Heart - Rixton download or stream the song: amazon spotify

So Fine - Sean Paul

tempo: 137 bpm bpm range:   135  to  140 bpm the DJ’s take:  Probably not going on his Greatest Hits collection, but danceable nonetheless. Best way I can describe it is like a cross between Mission Impossible and strobe light photography with the punctuated beat. Different sound from what he’s done before, which is a good thing. Worth a spin from time to time when the mood is right. Try mixing with: Drifting - G-Eazy ft. Chris Brown, Tory Lanez Elastic Heart - Sia Pop That - French Montana Pour It Up - Rihanna download or stream the song: amazon itunes

No Sleeep - Janet Jackson

Speed: 88 bpm The DJ's Take: A true throwback - this could've fit right in on The Velvet Rope . Is it a hit? Not sure; R&B doesn't seem to resonate with the people anymore. That said, Janet Jackson's fan base is obviously huge, and they should appreciate this smooth, vintage single. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing tracks like Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift , One More Chance - Notorious BIG , No Games - Serani , and Real Love - Mary J. Blige .
