Family Feud - Jay-Z ft. Beyoncé

tempo: 83 bpm

bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Probably won't pop with the youth on a Top 40 or hiphop night. But it's elegant, dignified, and something the grown folk can nod their heads to. I could see turntablists having some fun with this too. Worth a spot in the car or around-the-house playlist.

Some tracks to mix with in the 80 to 85 bpm range:

Tell Me You Love Me - Demi Lovato
Plain Jane - A$AP Ferg
Dirty Sexy Money - David Guetta
The Way Life Goes - Lil Uzi Vert
Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora
Reaper - Sia
Walk It Out - DJ Unk

And from 86 to 88 bpm:

Rude Boy - Rihanna
Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z
Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys
Famous - Kanye West
Back to Back - Drake
Energy - Drake
The Black The Berry - Kendrick Lamar
Remember Me - T.I. ft. Mary J. Blige
