Paranoid - Post Malone

tempo: 80 bpm

bpm range: 75 bpm to 80 bpm80 bpm to 85 bpm

the dj's take: Track #3 in Episode 38 (4:15):

In my power rankings of songs called Paranoid, this one is #2. I put it in front of Ty Dolla $ign, but well behind Black Sabbath. If you have any thoughts, @me and set the record straight.

On the more 'technical' side, that subtle whistle-like effect in the chorus leads pretty smoothly into the intro for Jason Derulo's Wiggle. Worth a try on a pop night or mixtape.

Some key-compatible music:

If you're staying in the high 70s to low 80s in terms of bpm, this sounds pretty good with Travis Scott's HIGHEST IN THE ROOM.
