Monster - Shawn Mendes, Justin Bieber

tempo: 73 bpm

the dj's take: Song #3 in episode 58 (5:49):

As I dug up the video for this post, youtube suggested this in the sidebar:

Skip the sleeping pills; half a listen will put you down for the count. In fact, if Monster ever made a sedative-laced anti-energy drink, I would pitch this as the theme music for an ad campaign. That said, it still works as a harmonic follow-up to Drake's Fake Love. And we slotted in Ariana Grande's positions right afterward, so all's well that ends well.

Some other key-compatible tracks from 70 to 75 bpm:

Blocks - Marshmello
Locked Out Of Heaven - Bruno Mars
All I Do Is Win - DJ Khaled
Handsome And Wealthy - Migos
Holy Grail - Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake
First Day Out - Kodak Black
