Caught Their Eyes - Jay-Z ft. Frank Ocean

tempo: 85 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm85 bpm to 90 bpm

the dj's take: This is how hiphop used to be - an all-time great mc riding a smooth, refurbished 70s soul sample. Probably not something you spin on a pop night. But if it's a free-form set or you're cruising around the city in your ride, by all means press play.

If you're staying key-compatible, mix or mash up with:

Halo - Beyoncé
Side To Side - Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj
LA Confidential - Tory Lanez
Sure Thing - Miguel
Golden - Travie McCoy ft. Sia
Talk That Talk - Rihanna
No Sleep - Wiz Khalifa
Russian Roulette - Rihanna
