Cheers (Drink To That) - Rihanna

tempo: 80 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm The DJ's Take:  If a network does a re-make of Cheers, this could make a decent theme song, right? Although it's hard to beat the original: Not one of her bigger hits, but worth an occasional spin at a college bar. A couple key-compatible tracks between 75 and 80 bpm: Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey Feel It Still - Portugal, The Man And from 80 to 85: Location - Khalid Krippy Kush - Farruko, Bad Bunny, Rvssian Holy Key - DJ Khaled Exchange - Bryson Tiller Back Up - DeJ Loaf ft. Big Sean Play No Games - Big Sean Just Kickin' It - Xscape Down and Out - Cam'ron download or stream Cheers (Drink To That): amazon spotify playlist

Only - Nicki Minaj ft. Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown

tempo: 60 bpm bpm range:   55 bpm  to  60 bpm ,  60 bpm  to  65 bpm The DJ's Take:  Can't lie - the beat makes me sleepy. But during a quieter interval in a club, this could work in a hiphop set. A minor hit in its day with notable vocalists; worth an occasional spin to fill a couple minutes. A couple key-compatible tracks to mix with: UnFazed - Lil Uzi Vert ft. The Weeknd Really Really - Kevin Gates Whole Lotta Lovin - DJ Mustard ft. Travis Scott download or stream Only: amazon itunes

Bella y Sensual - Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam

tempo: 90 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm ,  90  to  95 bpm the dj's take:  If even I can recognize the three artists on this track, it has to be big, right? Probably best employed during a Latin night than a mainstream pop set. But the bounciness should get people of any ethnicity moving. Try mixing / mashing up with: In My Bed (So So Def Remix) - Dru Hill Gold Digger - Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx Work - Rihanna ft. Drake No Scrubs - TLC Esc├ípate Conmigo - Wisin ft. Ozuna Faith - George Michael Don't You Need Somebody - RedOne Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Lean Back - Terror Squad, Fat Joe & Remy Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home) [feat. Plies] - Usher Winner - Jamie Foxx Try Again - Aaliyah download or stream Bella y Sensual: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Runaway (U & I) - Galantis

tempo: 126 bpm bpm range:   125  to  130 bpm The DJ's Take: The chorus can get a little grating, but I could pump my fist to this. A hit in Europe and worth a spin during an EDM night. If you're staying key-compatible, try mixing with tracks like: We No Speak Americano - Yolanda Be Cool vs. DCUP Memories - David Guetta ft. Kid Cudi Temperature - Sean Paul Move Your Body (Alan Walker Remix) - Sia WIEE - Martin Garrix If It Ain't Love - Jason Derulo Home - Firebeatz & Jay Hardway Sunglasses At Night - Corey Hart Shut Up and Dance - WALK THE MOON Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor) - Pitbull ft. T-Pain download or stream Runaway (U & I): amazon spotify playlist

Downtown - Anitta & J Balvin

tempo: 83 bpm bpm range:   80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: If you've got kids in the room when this comes on, time to break out the earmuffs (via ): Of course, that's assuming they know Spanish. And understand what it means to go downtown (by means other than public transportation). Anyway, should get people moving on a Latin night. Could also work on a regular pop set in the right spot. Some key-compatible tracks from 80 to 85 bpm: Chainsaw - Nick Jonas Messin' Around - Pitbull ft. Enrique Iglesias Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner Send My Love - Adele The Man - Aloe Blacc Live Your Life - Rihanna Royals - Lorde American Oxygen - Rihanna And a couple more from 86-87 bpm: Paper Planes - MIA Versace On The Floor - Bruno Mars download or stream Downtown: amazon spotify playlist
