We Belong - Pat Benatar

tempo: 68 bpm

the dj's take: The final song in episode 58 (17:48):

Fun way to end the mix - cut out the last section of this track with the Marquee tool in Logic Pro X so we could open with the heavy percussion (in light pink). Then I added the opening guitar/quasi-percussion from Drake's Hotline Bling (in blue) so we weren't just immediately dropping into Pat Benatar vocals + drum-less synths:

Overall, worth a spin to wrap up your next set - solid singalong potential as well.

Some other key-compatible tracks from 65 to 70 bpm:

Motorsport - Migos
First Day Out - Kodak Black
Versace (Remix) - Migos ft. Drake
Gucci On My - Mike WiLL Made-It, 21 Savage, YG, Migos
Fake Love - Drake
No Sense - Justin Bieber
Are You That Somebody? - Aaliyah
