American Boy - Estelle ft. Kanye West

tempo: 118 bpm

bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm

the dj's take: Today's the 10th anniversary of the release date, and it's a notable throwback. I remember dropping this a few times on my Top 40 nights, and the response was solid, especially from females. Has a refined electro sound with intermittent searing synths, which gives it the thump to keep people moving. Worth breaking out from time to time in a pop set.

Try mixing with key-compatible tracks like:
