Secrets - The Weeknd



tempo: 110 bpm

bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm110 to 115 bpm

the dj's take: You know, I think this was maybe the only song off Starboy we didn't go over. Considering the delayed release of the video, guess they're squeezing the last drops of relevance by making this the next single. Kind of feels like avant-garde theme music for a Western with the shimmering synths and twangy guitars. Worth a spin during a cowboy-themed fashion show.

If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with:

In the 110 to 115 bpm range:

CAN'T STOP THE FEELING! - Justin Timberlake
In The Night - The Weeknd
I Love You - Axwell /\ Ingrosso
Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay
Rockin' - The Weeknd

Between 105 to 110 bpm:

Craving You - Thomas Rhett ft. Maren Morris
Light It Up (Remix) - Major Lazer
Bang My Head - David Guetta ft. Sia & Fetty Wap
Can't Feel My Face - The Weeknd
This One's For You - David Guetta ft. Zara Larsson

Lucky You - Eminem ft. Joyner Lucas

tempo: 76-77 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: I was wondering why the phrase 'Lucky You' sounded familiar... then remembered my Lucky Brand jeans say this behind the zipper: So let's say you're on a date. Things are going well, relations commence, and your companion sees that message. Cute? Or a mood killer? Either way, that's a lot of bravado to live up to. Brings to mind Brick Tamland in Anchorman: As for the track, try mixing with: Bam - Jay-Z ft. Damian Marley PIE - Future ft. Chris Brown Stitches - Shawn Mendes download or stream Lucky You: amazon itunes

Stay - The Kid LAROI ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 85 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Song #9 in episode #65 of our mix show (22:29): Cool transition out of Scarface's Guess Who's Back ; loop that properly and you've got an interesting potential beat / mashup. And then we slide into T-Pain and Kehlani's I Like Dat to slow down the pace and take us into the home stretch. A must-spin for any pop dj - serves up a burst of bouncy energy for the youth who've been cooped up for awhile now.
