I Don't Wanna Live Forever - ZAYN & Taylor Swift

Speed: 59 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm

The DJ's Take: #1 on iTunes, and millions of 16 year old girls probably have this on repeat right about now. I'd be very tempted to mash this up with Never Be Like You - Flume. You could also half-time into faster tracks like the following:

If you're in the 110 to 115 bpm range, consider mixing with:

CAN'T STOP THE FEELING! - Justin Timberlake
In The Night - The Weeknd
Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay
Rockin' - The Weeknd

If you're between 115 and 120, try mixing with:

Adore - Jasmine Thompson
Safe and Sound - Capital Cities
Bad Romance - Lady Gaga
Don't You Want Me - The Human League
SexyBack - Justin Timberlake
