Jam - Kevin Gates ft. Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, Jamie Foxx

Speed: 60 bpm

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

The DJ's Take: This feels like a bit of a throwback to 10-15 years ago, when we saw more end-of-the-night R&B on the charts. Personally, I'd consider winding an evening down with this, then maybe throw on Candyman's Knockin' Boots as a bonus right afterward (click here for the iTunes download).

If you're looking to do a key-compatible mashup, I'd go with Bad Intentions - Niykee Heaton ft. Migos, waves - Miguel ft. Travis Scott, and White Walls - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (or drop down to 56-57 bpm and get into Say It - Tory Lanez). If you've still got time to fill and the energy needs to go back up, try half-timing into tracks like Under Pressure - Queen & David Bowie, Ice Ice Baby - Vanilla Ice, and Wasted - Tiesto.
