Perro Fiel - Shakira ft. Nicky Jam



tempo: 92 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the dj's take: Kind of a strange song and video. First off, that opening image of the violinists is a little cringey - might've worked better in the video for this song. And according to spanishdict.com, 'perro fiel' means faithful dog. So if they ever come out with an English version, the title and lyrics may need a little adjustment.

Bigger picture, this is worth a spin on a Latin night. Strong buzz, big names, and a bounce that delivers the goods.

Couple of key-compatible tracks in the 90 to 95 bpm range:

Ruff Ryders' Anthem - DMX
Controlla - Drake
Magnets - Disclosure ft. Lorde
Locked Away - R. City ft. Adam Levine

And from 96-97:

Post To Be - Omarion ft. Chris Brown & Jhené Aiko
F**kin' Problems - A$AP Rocky
