2 Phones - Kevin Gates

Speed: 61 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm, 60 bpm to 65 bpm

The DJ's Take: Safe to say this is a safer play on a hiphop night in an urban environment. And yet this song's making a move up the pop charts, so maybe there's some untapped potential with a broader audience. Try mixing or making mashups with tracks like:

Often - The Weeknd
Yoga - Janelle Monae
CoCo - O.T. Genasis
Party Girls - Ludacris ft. Wiz Khalifa
Birthday Sex - Jeremih
Loveeeeeee Song - Rihanna ft. Future

And if you need to pick up the pace, bump up a couple bpm's and try half-timing into tracks like:
