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

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com

DJ mix/mashup: no can do because of you (ft. Hall & Oates and Ne-Yo)

Made with Logic Pro at 113 bpm A quick clip from the last mix , and one of my favorite transitions in it. Kind of alluring, mysterious; maybe we can make a more fully realized remix/mashup someday. If you're wondering what the image is in the background at the start of the video, those are quahogs and a channeled whelk I dug out of the sand in low tide on a recent beach trip. Pretty solid haul, and good eating for sure. Although I probably should've kept them separate - apparently whelks like to eat the clams .
