Reminder - The Weeknd

tempo: 80 bpm

bpm range:  75 bpm to 80 bpm80 bpm to 85 bpm

the DJ's take: Cold and detached beat, but definitely something you can nod your head to. Plus, this is a brand new video, so expect it to boost the profile of the song. Lots of key-compatible tracks to mix with in a couple different tempos:

In the 75 to 80 bpm range:

I Need A Doctor - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem
Welcome to Jamrock - Damian Marley
See You Again - Wiz Khalifa
Stick Talk - Future
Knock You Down - Keri Hilson ft. NeYo and Kanye West

In the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Myself - NAV
Bounce - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne
Gotta Lotta - 2 Chainz ft. Lil Wayne
The Heart Wants What It Wants - Selena Gomez
Party - Beyoncé
Come & Get It - Selena Gomez
Started From The Bottom - Drake
