Pop Style - Drake ft. The Throne

Speed: 66.5 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm

The DJ's Take: If a track features Drake, Kanye, and Jay-Z, it's pretty much a must-download, right? The beat is interesting - almost feels like the background theme for a dystopian future with gray skies, droopy, leafless trees swaying in the wind, and robots. Lots of robots.

If you're in the 60 to 65 bpm range, try mixing with tracks like Bad Intentions - Niykee Heaton ft. Migos, waves - Miguel ft. Travis Scott, and Jam - Kevin Gates ft. Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, Jamie Foxx.

If you're in the 65 to 70 bpm range, Pop That - French Montana, Iz U Down - Kid Ink ft. Tyga, and No Option - Kid Ink could work.
