Run This Town - Jay-Z, Rihanna and Kanye West

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:  80 bpm  to  85 bpm ,  85 bpm  to  90 bpm the DJ’s take:  Guess you could call this the Miami Heat model of music - put 3 big stars together and wait for greatness. And in this case, it worked. Couple of Grammys, and solid commercial success. Not exactly uplifting, but there's enough percussion to keep things moving in a bar setting. Key doesn't quite match up, but this could sound alright with: This Is Why I'm Hot - MIMS It's Gonna Be Me - NSYNC Flexicution - Logic Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio Simple Things (Remix) - Miguel Turnin Me On - Keri Hilson You Make Me Wanna - Usher Can't Tell Me Nothing - Kanye West Xxplosive (feat. Hittman, Six-Two, Nate Dogg & Kurupt) - Dr. Dre download or stream the song: amazon itunes

Should've Been Us - Tori Kelly

Speed: 90 bpm Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm The DJ's Take: I feel like one day, Tori Kelly can be a pop star; she just hasn't found the right song yet. This one feels like half a hit (or maybe I'm just prejudiced against tracks that don't even make an attempt at a bridge ). All that said, it's easy on the ears, and you can mix with some or all of the following: You Be Killin Em - Fabolous , It Girl - Pharrell , Magic - Coldplay , Stereo Hearts - Gym Class Heroes , You're All I Need - Method Man & Mary J. Blige , Baby Baby Baby - TLC , Opposite of Adults - Chiddy Bang , Ridin Solo - Jason Derulo , Airplanes - B.o.B , Find Your Love - Drake , Flashing Lights - Kanye West , Replay - IYAZ , Renée - Lost Boyz Download the song: Amazon: Should've Been Us
