Summer Sixteen - Drake

Speed: 71 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm

The DJ's Take: They say revenge is a dish best served cold, and this beat is like ice. The tricky part is the key - closest I can find on the site is Never Forget You - Zara Larsson, MNEK, and maybe Swimming Pools (Drink) - Kendrick Lamar. I feel like there's a slight shift in the second half of track, which could open the door a little more for Pop That - French Montana and Pour It Up - Rihanna.

Of course, key-compatibility isn't the end all be all. Summer Sixteen is a must-download at this point, so you'll find a way to integrate, one way or another.
