Side To Side - Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj

tempo: 79-80 bpm

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

the DJ's take: Beat kind of sounds like Welcome To Jamrock in a different key with little hints of Skrillex. Given the artists and the reggae vibe, I think this has some summer pop potential. Worth a spot in the new music playlist.

Some key-compatible tracks between 75 and 80 bpm:

Headlines - Drake
Heavy - Linkin Park ft. Kiiara
A-YO - Lady Gaga
Down in the DM - Yo Gotti
LA Confidential - Tory Lanez
Blast Ya - Borgore ft. Barrington Levy
Collard Greens - SchoolBoy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar
Spaceships - Area21Tell Your Friends - The Weeknd

And from 80 to 85 bpm

Sure Thing - Miguel
Golden - Travie McCoy ft. SiaTalk That Talk - Rihanna
No Sleep - Wiz Khalifa
Halo - Beyoncé
Flex (Ooh Ooh Ooh) - Rich Homie Quan
