Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers, Daya

Speed: 80 bpm

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

The DJ's Take: The shimmery intro makes you think of 311, and the light drop sort of sounds like a sped-up, higher-register She Knows with the fake horns. Is it a hit? Who knows; I didn't expect Roses to blow up like it did. Anyway, worth a spot in the new music playlist.

If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing or making a mashup with tracks like Heart Attack - Trey Songz and Strange Clouds - B.o.B ft. Lil Wayne.
