Be Alright - Ariana Grande

Speed: 109 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm

The DJ's Take: Oh man; that routine in the video reminds me of the Happy Hands Club in Napoleon Dynamite. Probably more laughs in those 3 minutes than the rest of the SNL episode.

As for the track itself, not bad. Snazzy beat you can snap your fingers too; almost sounds like Disclosure made it, with the soft, understated synths and periodic distorted human voices in the background. I predict a hit.

Try double-timing over Sex With Me - Rihanna or mixing / mashing up with songs like Wild Things - Alessia Cara, The Monster - Eminem ft. Rihanna, Something In The Way You Move - Ellie Goulding, Cruel Summer - Bananarama, Turn Me On - Kevin Lyttle, Mo Money Mo Problems - Notorious BIG, and Ain't It Fun - Paramore.
