Real Friends - Kanye West

Speed: 86 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm, 85 bpm to 90 bpm

The DJ's Take: With a new album on the way, this is getting a lot of buzz, so certainly worth a spin when the mood is right. If you're staying key-compatible, here are some of my mix & mashup picks in the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean
Play No Games - Big Sean
Just Kickin' It - Xscape
Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey
Down and Out - Cam'ron
Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna
We Go Down - Krewella

If you're going up toward 90, this could sound interesting with Africa - Toto, Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg, It Girl - Jason Derulo, and In Da Club - 50 Cent.
