I Think Of You - Jeremih, Chris Brown, Big Sean

tempo: 100 bpm bpm range:   95  to  100 bpm ,  100  to  105 bpm the DJ's take: Little bit of a throwback feel, which makes it better suited for a laid-back lounge-type environment. But the notable names make it worth a spin during the new music portion of a hiphop / r&b night. If you're operating in the 100 to 105 bpm range, try mixing with tracks like: Doo Wop (That Thing) - Lauryn Hill Kiss The Sky - The Knocks Me & The Rhythm - Selena Gomez Levels - Nick Jonas Be Faithful - Fatman Scoop Pretty Girls - Britney Spears ft. Iggy Azalea If you're in the 95 to 100 bpm range, try going with tracks like: Blem - Drake Tek Weh Yuh Heart - Sean Paul Blank Space - Taylor Swift Don't Tell Em - Jeremih Back That Azz Up - Juvenile Dreamlover - Mariah Carey Slow Motion - Trey Songz download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes Amazon

Despacito - Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee

tempo: 89 bpm bpm range:   85 bpm  to  90 bpm the DJ's take: According to , Despacito means 'slowly,' 'softly' or 'gently.' And that describes this song pretty well. Very hot on Spotify, and very likely to be blasting on the stereo during a Latin dance class at the local Y. Could sound good with: Chainsaw - Nick Jonas Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner The Man - Aloe Blacc Royals - Lorde Paper Planes - MIA Versace On The Floor - Bruno Mars Bump up a couple bpm's and try mixing with: Waterfall - Stargate, P!nk, Sia LUV - Tory Lanez Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya Hide Away - Daya Again - Fetty Wap 679 - Fetty Wap Style - Taylor Swift Jealous - Nick Jonas Good Thing (feat. Nick Jonas) - Sage the Gemini Diamonds - Rihanna ,  Adorn - Miguel Candy Rain - Soul For Real Check The Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest download or stream the song: Spotify playlist (including the Justin Bieber remix) App

Throwback Thursday: Empire State of Mind - Jay-Z ft. Alicia Keys

tempo: 87 bpm bpm range: 85 bpm to 90 bpm the DJ’s take:  No small task to make a new anthem for one of the world's great cities, but Jay-Z and Alicia Keys did it. Definitely worth a spin on a pop or hiphop night, and that hook has reached singalong status. Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like: Famous - Kanye West Back to Back - Drake Izzo (H.O.V.A.) - Jay-Z Energy - Drake The Black The Berry - Kendrick Lamar Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora Rude Boy - Rihanna Reaper - Sia download or stream the song: Spotify playlist Apple Music iTunes Amazon

tempo: 102 bpm bpm range:   100  to  105 bpm the DJ's take: Shoutout to the UK, where spinning this will probably get a bigger reaction than in the US.
