Truth Hurts - Lizzo

tempo: 79 bpm

the dj's take: Song #5 in detour 44 (10:51):

That little piano riff is the foundation of the track, so we chopped up the beginning strains and laid them 4 times over the final section of THE CARTERS' APESHIT for a softer intro. Then you just drop in the hook with the full-blown percussion for the win. Here's how it looked in Logic Pro X:

Definitely worth trying in your next pop / hiphop mix.
