Despacito - Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee

tempo: 89 bpm

bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm

the DJ's take: According to, Despacito means 'slowly,' 'softly' or 'gently.' And that describes this song pretty well. Very hot on Spotify, and very likely to be blasting on the stereo during a Latin dance class at the local Y. Could sound good with:

Chainsaw - Nick Jonas

Bump up a couple bpm's and try mixing with:
