Africa - Toto

tempo: 92 bpm

bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

the dj's take: Pretty good oral history in Billboard on the 35th anniversary of Africa hitting #1 on the charts. As someone who dj'ed at a college bar from ~2007-10, I can confirm that Caucasian millennials love this song and will sing that chorus like it's the national anthem.

[semi]Pro tip: do a mix / mashup with Juicy and Juicy Fruit. A little cross-genre change of pace that's unconventional, but effective.

Solid list of key-compatible tracks:
