Me Too - Meghan Trainor

Speed: 124 bpm Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm , 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Not a fan, but I understand - this is not for me. Currently Top 5 on iTunes, probably due to strong support from teenage females. Take a flyer on a pop night, then get into more serious key-compatible tracks like:

Gold - Kiiara

Speed: 85 bpm Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm , 85 bpm to 90 bpm The DJ's Take: This makes me think of two things - raindrops and playing songs backward to see if they have underlying messages . A cool, laidback vibe and a steady rise through the charts make this worth a spin on a pop night. Other key-compatible tracks to mix or mash up with include:

Body Say - Demi Lovato

Speed: 87 bpm Recommended bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm The DJ's Take: You know, her music's tolerable when she's not trying too hard. I could see this eventually being a hit. Worth a spin on a Thursday night at a casual college bar. Try mixing or mashing up with key-compatible tracks like:

M.I.L.F. $ - Fergie

Speed: 81 bpm Recommended bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm The DJ's Take: If this isn't getting a group of twenty-something females on the dance floor, I don't know what will. Initial bump on the charts probably comes from all the cameos in the video, but this is a bombastic, club-friendly beat that should be in your rotation a.s.a.p. Try mixing or making a mashup with tracks like:
