Starboy - The Weeknd, Daft Punk

tempo: 93 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: Song #6 in our chapter 53 mix (11:38):

As we saw with the I Wonder lead-in, that percussion-only intro makes this easier to mix and to play around with. Also melts nicely into Nine Inch Nails' Closer. In fact, even though I know when the transition's coming, it still creeps up on me a bit.

Still worth a spot in your prime-time pop rotation.
