Me & the Rhythm - Selena Gomez

  tempo: 106 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #7 in chapter 52 (14:58): Kind of a quiet intro, and the drums and the vocals hit heavily, so we had to get creative with the transition from Jeremih's Don't Tell 'Em . And then a pretty smooth move into Avicii's Lonely Together . Steel drums add a summery, tropical vibe. Worth a spot in a pop set, especially if you see Selena's target demo in the crowd (i.e. twenty-something women). Some other key-compatible tracks: Be Faithful - Fatman Scoop ft. Faith Evans Me & The Rhythm - Selena Gomez Blem - Drake Blueberry Faygo - Lil Mosey Dreamlover - Mariah Carey It's Great to Be Here - Jackson 5 Happier - Marshmello, Bastille Me & The Rhythm - Selena Gomez Crazy In Love - Beyoncé ft.

ROCKSTAR - DaBaby ft. Roddy Ricch

tempo: 90 bpm The DJ's Take: Song #1 in our chapter 51 mix (made in Logic Pro X ): Big bass, so I had to be strategic about where to transition out and into Rihanna's Work . A little more of an in-depth look, plus some thoughts on its shelf life in a dj's rotation: Bottom line, when nightlife at college bars picks up again, this will likely be in heavy rotation. Some other key-compatible tracks: Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ft. Wanz Public Service Announcement - Jay-Z Con Calma - Daddy Yankee, Snow River - Eminem, Ed Sheeran Bella y Sensual - Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam In My Bed (So So Def Remix) - Dru Hill Gold Digger - Kanye West ft. Jamie Foxx No Scrubs - TLC Escápate Conmigo - Wisin ft. Ozuna Faith - George Michael Don't You Need Somebody - RedOne Lean Back - Terror Squad, Fat Joe & Remy Hey Daddy (Daddy's Home) [feat.

I Wonder - Kanye West

tempo: 95-96 bpm the dj's take: Song #5 in our chapter 53 mix (8:36): This is probably the one I had the most fun with while making this. The intro is a seamless fit over Mary J. Blige's Real Love , especially with the matching pianos. Strong mashup potential there. Then we ran back the intro over the opening to The Weeknd's Starboy . Even did a little echo effect on the word 'means'; here's a video on how we made it happen in Logic Pro X : Some other key-compatible music: Delicate - Taylor Swift Stir Fry - Migos Gorgeous - Taylor Swift Unpretty - TLC Suena El Dembow - Joey Montana, Sebastián Yatra Pendulum - Katy Perry One More Chance (Remix) - Notorious BIG SUBEME LA RADIO - Enrique Iglesias All We Know - The Chainsmokers Back To Sleep - Chris Brown No Games - Serani Out of the Woods - Taylor Swift This Is How We Do - Katy Perry Teaser - Tanto Metro & Devonte, Devonte & Tanto Metro Heads High - Mr. Vegas F.F.F.
