Sidewalks - The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar

Speed: 75 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm, 75 bpm to 80 bpm

The DJ's Take: Beat sounds like something from a Tarantino movie, and The Weeknd sounds like he's going a little T-Pain on us. Definitely worth a spot in the new music playlist. In fact, this album is a pretty spinnable one - I'll cover a couple more tracks in the days to come.

If you're staying key-compatible around 72 bpm, this should sound good with Pop That - French Montana.

If you're in the 75 to 80 bpm range, here are some other hits to mix with:
