Top Off - DJ Khaled, JAY Z, Future, Beyoncé

tempo: 65 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm ,  65 bpm  to  70 bpm the dj's take: The beat reminds me of a slower, toned-down version of Bone Crusher's Never Scared . Nothing too unique here, but the names are obviously buzzworthy enough for a crowd to recognize it. Should work just fine in a hiphop set at the club or in a lively college bar. Some key-compatible songs to mix / mash up with: Bartier Cardi - Cardi B ft. 21 Savage Modern Slavery - Huncho Jack, Travis Scott, Quavo Love Galore - SZA ft. Travis Scott DNA. - Kendrick Lamar Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber  White Iverson - Post Malone goosebumps - Travis Scott Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj ft. Beyoncé Make Love - Gucci Mane ft. Nicki Minaj Big Pimpin - Jay-Z ft. UGK Deja Vu - Post Malone & Justin Bieber In The Name Of Love - Martin Garrix ft. Bebe Rexha Let Me Love You - Ariana Grande Day N Nite - Kid Cudi Jimmy Choo - Fetty Wap Horses In The Stable - Ty Dolla $

Everyday - Logic, Marshmello

tempo: 75 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm ,  75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: If they ever do a modern reboot of Ferris Bueller's Day Off , wouldn't be a shock if this is the theme song. Plus, the beat is pretty much what you'd expect from Marshmello, which the youth will appreciate. Should get a good reaction on a pop or trap night. Try mixing with: Love Lies - Khalid, Normani I Get The Bag - Gucci Mane ft. Migos Sky Walker - Miguel ft. Travis Scott T-Shirt - Migos Bake Sale - Wiz Khalifa ft. Travis Scott Panda - Desiigner Purple Lamborghini - Skrillex & Rick Ross Long Time - Ty Dolla $ign Ride - twenty one pilots King of Everything - Wiz Khalifa Kiss Kiss - Chris Brown ft. T-Pain download or stream Everyday: amazon spotify playlist

44 More - Logic

tempo: 70 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: So I was wondering about the source of the 'Turn it up!' vocal sample that starts at ~ 1:40 in this track (and in Kanye's Waves ). And after doing a little googling, looks like it comes from Fantastic Freaks At The Dixie off the Wild Style soundtrack . So there's a little tidbit if you were curious. Anyway, this is prime background music for a montage of pickup basketball highlights. Should also keep the crowd hype on a hiphop night. Try mixing with: Gyalchester - Drake Bad Things - Machine Gun Kelly, Camila Cabello Ain't My Fault - Zara Larsson Sorry - Beyoncé Sledgehammer - Rihanna Pop Style - Drake waves - Miguel ft. Travis Scott Shake It Off - Mariah Carey Pop That - French Montana Iz U Down - Kid Ink No Option - Kid Ink Hey Hey Hey - Katy Perry download or stream 44 More: amazon spotify playlist

Stronger - Kelly Clarkson

tempo: 116 bpm bpm range: 115 to 120 bpm The DJ's Take:  If a you want to get the crowd hype during one of those Women's Marches , this should be on the playlist. Should fit in nicely as a throwback during a pop set at a college / twenty-something bar. Try mixing or mashing up with: Faking It - Calvin Harris ft. Kehlani & Lil Yachty Don't You Want Me - Human League New Rules - Dua Lipa Sexyback - Justin Timberlake Renegade - Axwell /\ Ingrosso I Love You - Axwell /\ Ingrosso, Kid Ink Adore - Jasmine Thompson Safe and Sound - Capital Cities Bad Romance - Lady Gaga Emotions - Mariah Carey download or stream Stronger: amazon spotify playlist

Ahora - J Balvin

tempo: 88 bpm bpm range:   85  to  90 bpm the dj's take: Talk about tempting fate - I expected that video to end in a blaze of bullets. That J Balvin is one smooth operator. As for the track, has that slow and steady bounce that should translate nicely on a Latin / reggaeton / hiphop night. Try mixing / mashing up with songs of a similar key like: Se Preparó - Ozuna Kill Jay-Z - Jay-Z Can I Get A - Jay-Z  Miss Independent - Ne-Yo Umbrella - Rihanna Treat You Better - Shawn Mendes Mind - Skrillex & Diplo Chandelier - Sia Burn - Ellie Goulding download or stream Ahora: amazon spotify playlist
