SICKO MODE - Travis Scott ft. Drake

tempo: 69 bpm, 77-78 bpm

bpm range: 65 bpm to 70 bpm, 75 bpm to 80 bpm

the dj's take: The leadoff song in our Entry 23 mix:

This one is like the Neopolitan ice cream of music - three flavors in one. Makes sense for the younger listeners and their shorter attention spans. And as a producer / songwriter, you can take three half-finished attempts at a single, then mash them together to make a hit.

Some key-compatible tracks to mix with Part I (up to ~0:59):

And for Part II (up to ~2:49)

And for Part III (starting ~2:57):

Walk It Out - DJ Unk
Redbone - Childish Gambino
Family Feud - Jay-Z ft. Beyoncé
Black Widow - Iggy Azalea ft. Rita Ora
Reaper - Sia

Another benefit of the three part format - you can smoothly move into another bpm / key in a mix without a trick or pre-programmed effect.
