Call It What You Want - Taylor Swift

tempo: 82 bpm bpm range: 80 bpm to 85 bpm the dj's take: This is like her version of Halo (which would make for a good mix / mashup). A light, ethereal sound that would fit in nicely on a perfume commercial: What would you name a Taylor Swift-endorsed fragrance? I'd go with Call It What You Want. Some other key-compatible tracks: I'm Goin' In - Drake ft. Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy Caught Their Eyes - Jay-Z ft. Frank Ocean 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 download or stream Call It What You Want: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Lemon - N.E.R.D. & Rihanna

tempo: 95 bpm bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm , 95  to  100 bpm the dj's take: As someone who's directed zero music videos in my life, I've got a creative bone to pick. Let's scrap the dancing lady and go with a montage of babies eating lemons (with celebrity cameos mixed in): As for the track, kind of interesting to hear Rihanna rap. Get Drake for the remix and this could be even bigger. Already worth a regular spot in the pop / hiphop rotation. If you're spinning from 90 to 95 bpm, try mixing with: Dusk Till Dawn - ZAYN ft. Sia Nuthin' But A G Thang - Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg Style - Taylor Swift Diamonds From Sierra Leone (Remix) - Kanye West ft. Jay-Z The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody) - Bebe Rexha ft. Lil Wayne Perfect Pint - Mike WiLL Made-It Waterfall - Stargate, P!nk, Sia LUV - Tory Lanez Sit Still, Look Pretty - Daya Hide Away - Daya She Ain't You - Chris Brown Again - Fetty Wap 679 - Fetty Wap Jealous - Nick Jonas Goo

Imma Be - Black Eyed Peas

tempo: 92 bpm, switches to 123 bpm halfway through bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm , 120 to 125 bpm the DJ’s take:  A unique track that changes tempo halfway through - saves a dj the effort of having to come up with an energy-accelerating transition (similar deal with Just Can't Get Enough ). Decent throwback that should work during one of your quieter Top 40 nights. Some tracks worth mixing with: From 90 to 95 bpm (scroll down in the box below): Creep - TLC I Feel It Coming - The Weeknd, Daft Punk Water Under The Bridge - Adele ...Baby One More Time - Britney Spears Capsize - FRENSHIP & Emily Warren Mellow Drama - Sterling Mercury Why You Always Hatin? - YG ft. Drake, Kamaiyah Impatient - Jeremih ft. Ty Dolla $ign Kevin - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Express Yourself - N.W.A. Sexy Love - Ne-Yo Used To Love You - Gwen Stefani The Fix - Nelly ft. Jeremih Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye Where The Party At - Jagged Edge What's Luv - Fat Joe Ball - T.I. Fro

Give Me A Try - Sizzla

tempo: 70 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm The DJ’s Take:  If you were single and doing one of those 80s dating videos, you'd just sing this and it'd be a wrap, right? Definitely better than this: Worth a surprise drop in a hiphop or reggae set. I could see this being a possible sample in a future hit song. A couple key-compatible tracks between 65 and 70 bpm: RGF Island - Fetty Wap Say My Name - Destiny's Child And from 70 to 75 bpm: OMG - Camila Cabello ft. Quavo Back To You - Louis Tomlinson & Bebe Rexha All Night - The Vamps & Matoma Broccoli - D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty Low Life - Future + The Weeknd RGF Island - Fetty Wap Blood On the Money - Future Trophies - Drake Give Me A Try - Sizzla Bottoms Up - Trey Songz BedRock - Young Money Got Your Back - T.I. ft.

Again and Again - Basto

tempo: 128 bpm bpm range: 125 to 130 bpm The DJ's Take: Basto sounds like some trendy Italian eatery in the fancy part of [insert generic American city]. Might be fun to double-time this over Bodak Yellow . Or you can try mixing / mashing up with the following: The Time (Dirty Bit) - Black Eyed Peas OMG - Usher I Gotta Feeling - Black Eyed Peas Feel So Close - Calvin Harris Summer - Calvin Harris More - Usher Me Too - Meghan Trainor Give Me Your Love - Sigala ft. John Newman & Nile Rodgers Bouncybob - Martin Garrix +1 - Martin Solveig Be Right There - Diplo & Sleepy Tom How Deep Is Your Love - Calvin Harris + Disciples Secrets - Tiësto and KSHMR I Cry - Flo Rida Let's Go - Calvin Harris and NeYo We'll Be Coming Back - Calvin Harris Take Me Home - Cash Cash Day N Nite (Crookers Remix) - Kid Cudi download or stream Again and Again: amazon spotify playlist itunes

You're All I Need To Get By - Method Man ft. Mary J. Blige

tempo: 95 bpm bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm , 95  to  100 bpm The DJ’s Take: Fun mashup idea - pair this with the original Marvin Gaye / Tammi Terrell track: Definitely worth a spin as a throwback in a hiphop set.

Gucci Gang - Lil Pump

tempo: 60 bpm bpm range: 55 bpm to 60 bpm , 60 bpm to 65 bpm the dj's take: As a sports fan, I like watching how players celebrate success. The fist pump is especially entertaining. So when something major happens, you get the big pump: And when it's something smaller, you get the lil pump: Thank you - I'll be here all week. As for the track, it's short and sweet. Getting plenty of buzz, so worth a spin on a pop or hiphop night. Try mixing / mashing up with: Never Be Like You - Flume Car Radio - twenty one pilots No Broken Hearts - Bebe Rexha ft. Nicki Minaj All Day - Kanye West download or stream Gucci Gang: amazon itunes

MotorSport - Migos, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B

tempo: 69 bpm bpm range: 65 bpm  to  70 bpm the dj's take: Looked up the lyrics on , and as a Patriots fan, I'm offended by this line: That said, Migos is from Atlanta, so Quavo's probably salty. I understand - Super Bowl 51 was a rough one . Overall, a solid track with an all-star cast of vocalists - worth a spin on a hiphop night. Try mixing or mashing up with: First Day Out - Kodak Black Versace (Remix) - Migos ft. Drake Gucci On My - Mike WiLL Made-It, 21 Savage, YG, Migos Fake Love - Drake Hotline Bling - Drake No Sense - Justin Bieber Are You That Somebody? - Aaliyah download or stream MotorSport: amazon spotify playlist

tempo: 110 bpm bpm range: 105 to 110 bpm , 110 to 115 bpm the dj's take: Shoutout to Modjo for the hook. Hope they're getting some royalties: Youtube buzz is impressive, so give it a go on a pop night and see what happens. Try mixing / mashing up with: In My Head - Jason Derulo Because Of You - Ne-Yo Heat Stroke - Calvin Harris Hands To Myself - Selena Gomez Cool For The Summer - Demi Lovato Fun - Pitbull ft. Chris Brown The Hills - The Weeknd Anywhere - Dillon Francis download or stream Boom Boom: amazon spotify playlist
