Cold - Maroon 5 ft. Future

tempo: 100 bpm

bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm100 to 105 bpm

the DJ's Take: On one hand, any new Maroon 5 single is a big deal at this point. But the percussion-less interludes present a bit of an issue if you're trying to keep the energy up on a Top 40 dancefloor. Still, this should be in your library - maybe you can do a creative mashup or add some drums of your own. Good list of hits worth mixing with:

In the 95 to 100 bpm range:

Chained To The Rhythm - Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley
Daddy Yo - WizKid
Old Thing Back - Matoma & Notorious BIG ft. Ja Rule & Ralph Tresvant
This Is How We Do - Katy Perry
Shoop - Salt N Pepa
Na Na - Trey Songz
Paranoid - Ty Dolla $ign
