Nice For What - Drake

tempo: 93-94 bpm bpm range:   90  to  95 bpm the dj's take: First Cardi B , now Drake - sounds like Ex-Factor is getting a workout. Little bit of a break at ~2:07, so that might slow the momentum momentarily. But overall, a good bounce; big initial buzz, and you should make this a regular part of the pop & hiphop rotation. A few other key-compatible tracks: Hurt You - The Weeknd Love Me Like You Do - Ellie Goulding El Perdón - Nicky Jam, Enrique Iglesias Closer - The Chainsmokers Don't - Ed Sheeran Ride Out - Kid Ink, Tyga, YG, Wale & Rich Homie Quan download or stream Nice For What: amazon spotify playlist itunes

She Bad - Cardi B ft. YG

tempo: 80 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: I don't think I could dance to this, especially at my advanced age. But we all know the general demographic that beat is intended for, and that's the one you want on the floor. Lot of positive buzz - worth a spot in your next weekend set. Some other key-compatible tracks: Ghostface Killers - 21 Savage, Offset, Metro Boomin, Travis Scott Countdown - Beyoncé Clique - Kanye West, Jay-Z, Big Sean Criminal - Natti Natasha x Ozuna Black and Yellow - Wiz Khalifa Learn To Let Go - Kesha So Good - Zara Larsson ft. Ty Dolla $ign On My Mind - Ellie Goulding Bounce - 2 Chainz download or stream She Bad: amazon spotify playlist itunes

I Do - Cardi B ft. SZA

tempo: 67-68 bpm bpm range:   65 bpm  to  70 bpm the dj's take: That beat's a head-nodder. On a side note, check out the second result that popped up when I searched for 'i do cardi b' on youtube: My advice:  portion control . You're welcome. Some other key-compatible tracks: Pick Up The Phone - Young Thug, Travis Scott Forgot About Dre - Dr. Dre ft. Eminem Often - The Weeknd download or stream I Do: amazon itunes

One Kiss - Calvin Harris, Dua Lipa

tempo: 124 bpm bpm range:   120  to  125 bpm the dj's take: Similar bpm and key to  This Is What You Came For ,  so there's an easy mix / mashup possibility. Worth a spin on a Euro-style club night, or on the catwalk for a high-energy fashion show. Although the beat goes at a brisk pace, so you may see a little of this: Some other key-compatible tracks to mix with: Kids In Love - Kygo Faking It - Calvin Harris ft. Kehlani, Lil Yachty Instruction - Jax Jones ft. Demi Lovato Supercut - Lorde Hype - Dizzee Rascal & Calvin Harris Shades of Grey - Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank ft. Delaney Jane Prayer In C - Lilly Wood & The Prick and Robin Schulz Right Round - Flo Rida Intoxicated - Martin Solveig & GTA Higher Place - Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ft. NeYo download or stream One Kiss: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Framed - Eminem

tempo: 73 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take: If someone ever does a podcast about people who were framed for major crimes, this should be the theme song. Kind of a filthy beat that feels like a sweaty indoor psychedelic rock concert. Here's where the sample comes from, in case you're curious: Not 100% key-compatible, but I'd try mixing with some of the following: SAD! - XXXTENTACION All Night - The Vamps & Matoma Broccoli - D.R.A.M. ft. Lil Yachty Low Life - Future + The Weeknd RGF Island - Fetty Wap Blood On the Money - Future Trophies - Drake Give Me A Try - Sizzla Bottoms Up - Trey Songz BedRock - Young Money Got Your Back - T.I. ft. Keri Hilson Boyfriend #2 - Pleasure P Crank That - Soulja Boy Say My Name - Destiny's Child Obsesion (No Es Amor) - Frankie J featuring Baby Bash download or stream Framed: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Wasted Times - The Weeknd

tempo: 61-62 bpm bpm range:   60 bpm  to  65 bpm the dj's take: That song title would be a good name for a newspaper where the journalists are required to drink at least 4 martinis per article. Also, some advice for the young men out there - if you've had a falling out with a girl you like, just text her these lyrics ( via Genius ) and she'll fall in love all over again: And if that doesn't work, at least  tweet me her response so I can have a good laugh at your expense. Try mixing / mashing up with key-compatible tracks like: Burn - Usher U Got It Bad - Usher Bad and Boujee - Migos ft. Lil Uzi Vert That's What I Like - Bruno Mars Believer - Imagine Dragons Devastated - Joey Bada$$ Pull Up - Wiz Khalifa Grass Ain't Greener - Chris Brown Antidote - Travis Scott My Way - Fetty Wap Dark Horse - Katy Perry Ghosts N Stuff - deadmau5 download or stream Wasted Times: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Be Careful - Cardi B

tempo: 76 bpm bpm range:   75 bpm  to  80 bpm the dj's take: That beat sounds like a preset on a Casio keyboard. I was sort of wondering when this stripper-turned-rapper storyline would jump the shark, and Be Careful may be the beginning of the end. Still worth a spin in a pop set, especially while it's new. Try mixing with: Patek Water - Future, Young Thug, Offset I Just Can't - R3HAB, Quintino Headlines - Drake Heavy - Linkin Park ft. Kiiara Side To Side - Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj A-YO - Lady Gaga Down in the DM - Yo Gotti LA Confidential - Tory Lanez Blast Ya - Borgore ft. Barrington Levy Collard Greens - SchoolBoy Q ft. Kendrick Lamar No Sleep - Wiz Khalifa Halo - Beyoncé download or stream Be Careful: amazon spotify playlist itunes
