Sledgehammer - Rihanna

tempo: 66 bpm bpm range: 60 bpm to 65 bpm , 65 bpm to 70 bpm the dj's take: More Broadway than something you'd spin on a Top 40 night, but I guess you could pull it off with some creative cutting & editing. Worth a spin in the new music portion of your program or on a recorded mix. Try blending with tracks like: From 60 to 65 bpm: Bad Intentions - Niykee Heaton ft. Migos Running Back - Wale ft. Lil Wayne Jam - Kevin Gates ft. Trey Songz, Ty Dolla $ign, Jamie Foxx From 65 to 70 bpm: Gyalchester - Drake Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly, Camila Cabello Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson Sorry - Beyoncé Pop Style - Drake waves - Miguel ft. Travis Scott Shake It Off - Mariah Carey Pop That - French Montana Iz U Down - Kid Ink No Option - Kid Ink download or stream the song: Spotify playlist (songs with similar key & bpm) Apple Music iTunes

Sucker For Pain - Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Imagine Dragons, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, X Ambassadors

tempo: 84 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm the dj's take: This has to be a record for most artists featured on a pop track, right? If not, we're probably not too far off. Getting plenty of love on iTunes, and it's the closest we may ever get to a crossover posse cut . Try mixing or making a mashup with some or all of the following: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - WHAM! Big Poppa - Notorious BIG Just A Friend - Biz Markie M.I.L.F. $ - Fergie Hold Up - Beyoncé Better - Meghan Trainor Ride of Your Life - Tinashe Stressed Out - twenty one pilots Trumpets - Jason Derulo Wiggle - Jason Derulo Pills N Potions - Nicki Minaj Down On Me - Jeremih ft. 50 Cent Dance (A$$) Remix - Big Sean ft. Nicki Minaj download or stream the song: Spotify playlist (songs with similar key & bpm) Apple Music iTunes Amazon

I Got The Keys - DJ Khaled ft. Jay-Z and Future

tempo: 70 bpm bpm range: 70 bpm to 75 bpm the dj's take: Whether you spin hiphop or pop, this should probably be in your playlist for at least the next couple weekends. Wouldn't be shocked if Future's hook is used in an ESPN SportsCenter segment where an analyst gives his / her keys to a big game. Try mixing with tracks like: From 65 to 70 bpm: Portland - Drake Scared To Be Lonely - Martin Garrix, Dua Lipa From 70 to 75 bpm: No Frauds - Nicki Minaj, Drake, Lil Wayne Feel Me - Tyga ft. Kanye West Pony - Ginuwine Uber Everywhere - Madeintyo Jumpman - Drake & Future Wonderful - Travis Scott ft. The Weeknd Might Not - Belly ft. The Weeknd Mercy - Kanye West Throw Sum Mo (feat. Nicki Minaj & Young Thug) - Rae Sremmurd Bad Girls - M.I.A. download or stream the song: Spotify playlist (songs with similar key & bpm) Apple Music iTunes
