Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5 ft. Kendrick Lamar

Speed: 100 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm, 100 to 105 bpm

The DJ's Take: So I guess Sia wasn't available for this one? Anyway, when Maroon 5 is jumping on the electro-trop-pop bandwagon, you know the trend is reaching its peak. Worth a spin in the earlier part of a pop night as you build up to your bigger tracks.

If you're in the 95 to 100 bpm range, try mixing with key-compatible songs like:

Feel No Ways - Drake
Company - Justin Bieber
Misery - Gwen Stefani
Show Me - Kid Ink
Animals - Maroon 5
Survival of the Fittest - Mobb Deep
You And Your Friends - Wiz Khalifa

If you're in the 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with:
