OTW - Khalid ft. 6LACK, Ty Dolla $ign

tempo: 73 bpm bpm range:   70 bpm  to  75 bpm the dj's take:  How did Chris Brown not end up on this one? Smooth, chill music for the car or the bedroom. Worth a spin on a pop night or in a more laidback r&b / hiphop set. Try mixing with: Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Ray Dalton Relationship - Young Thug ft. Future DNA. - Kendrick Lamar Party - Chris Brown ft. Usher, Gucci Mane Feeling Myself - Nicki Minaj X - Chris Brown Moses - French Montana download or stream OTW: spotify playlist itunes

Where Are Ü Now - Skrillex & Diplo ft. Justin Bieber

tempo: 70 bpm, 140 bpm bpm range: 65 bpm  to  70 bpm ,  70 bpm  to  75 bpm , 135 to 140 bpm , 140  to  145 bpm The DJ's Take: One of the first singles that made people take Bieber a little more seriously. Apparently this was originally a 'piano ballad' (via wikipedia ): Good on Skrillex & Diplo for making it thump. Should still get a crowd going, especially in a bigger, louder venue. Try mixing with: From 65 to 69 bpm: Top Off - DJ Khaled, JAY Z, Future, Beyoncé Bartier Cardi - Cardi B ft. 21 Savage Modern Slavery - Huncho Jack, Travis Scott, Quavo Love Galore - SZA ft. Travis Scott White Iverson - Post Malone goosebumps - Travis Scott Make Love - Gucci Mane ft. Nicki Minaj Big Pimpin - Jay-Z ft.

Bebe Rexha Let Me Love You - Ariana Grande Day N Nite - Kid Cudi Jimmy Choo - Fetty Wap Horses In The Stable - Ty Dolla $ign Know Ya - Ty Dolla $ign Gold B

Genius - LSD ft. Sia, Diplo, Labrinth

tempo: 79-80 bpm bpm range: 75 bpm  to  80 bpm ,  80 bpm  to  85 bpm the dj's take: That video feels like one of those random animated shorts that used to pop up on Adult Swim at ~3:30 a.m. Also, props to Labrinth for taking out that pesky y between the b and the r - who knows how many spelling bee contestants have tripped up over that one. As for the song, sounds like something to put on the soundtrack of an Addams Family re-make in a scene where Gomez & Morticia profess their eternal love for each other . Not exactly uplifting, but has enough snap to make your head nod. Try mixing with: Dipset Anthem - The Diplomats Downtown - Anitta & J Balvin Chainsaw - Nick Jonas Messin' Around - Pitbull ft. Enrique Iglesias Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner Send My Love - Adele The Man - Aloe Blacc Live Your Life - Rihanna Royals - Lorde American Oxygen - Rihanna download or stream Genius: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Back To You - Selena Gomez

tempo: 102 bpm bpm range: 100  to  105 bpm the dj's take: A perfectly teen-friendly slice of electro-folk-pop. Maybe drop it during a prom and see how the song resonates with the target demographic. I imagine you'd get a solid reaction, given the artist, the show, and the buzz. Try double-timing over Bitch Better Have My Money - Rihanna or mixing with: I Ain't No Joke - Eric B & Rakim Bitches N Marijuana - Chris Brown and Tyga Loyal - Chris Brown Ayo - Chris Brown and Tyga I Don't F**k With You - Big Sean Team - Lorde U Know What's Up - Donell Jones download or stream Back To You: amazon spotify playlist itunes

Girls - Rita Ora ft. Cardi B, Bebe Rexha & Charli XCX

tempo: 94 bpm bpm range: 90  to  95 bpm the dj's take: So apparently there was some controversy on social media over the message in this song. Went off and over my head, kinda like Jose Canseco back in the day: Oops. Anyway, for a simple mind like mine, sounds like a solid song choice for a girls' night out at the club or a female-only slumber party. Worth a spin, especially because it's been in the news. Try mixing with: Plug Walk - Rich The Kid Candy Paint - Post Malone Cásate Conmigo - Silvestre Dangond, Nicky Jam I Got To Have It - Ed OG Say Aah - Trey Songz Drop It Like It's Hot - Snoop Dogg Rollin - Calvin Harris, Future, Khalid Bloodstream - The Chainsmokers NO - Meghan Trainor No Mediocre - T.I.
