Be Together - Major Lazer ft. Wild Belle

Speed: 80 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm, 80 bpm to 85 bpm

The DJ's Take: If I ever direct a movie about forbidden love, this will be the theme song. Probably won't rock a Top 40 dance floor, but there's enough percussion to make it worth a spin in the new music playlist.

If you're around 75 to 80 bpm, try mixing or mashing up with tracks like Down in the DM - Yo Gotti, Tell Your Friends - The Weeknd, Flex (Ooh, Ooh, Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan, Collard Greens - SchoolBoy Q, No Sleep - Wiz Khalifa, and Halo - Beyoncé. If you're edging up toward 85 bpm, Talk That Talk - Rihanna ft. Jay-Z could work too.
