Good Hip Hop Dance Songs to Groove To

Jamming to Hot Hip Hop Songs

No matter what dance club you hit, or what dance studio you visit, you won’t be able to avoid the fact that hip hop dance is one of the most popular types of dance out there. The moves are infectious, as are the funky beats of the tunes. Although the moves themselves are important when it comes to a solid hip hop dance routine, the music and songs that the routine is based on is equally as important. So, what makes a good hip hop dance song?

You may have noticed that many “new” songs out there are actually remixes and newer versions of old tunes. Regardless of this fact, one of the main deciding factors of a good and catchy a hip hop song is how original it is. Some of the most successful hip hop artists have been able to turn an old song into something completely new and original.

The tempo is also extremely important, as this has a huge influence on how people are to dance to the song. Generally speaking, you’ll most often hear hip hop tunes that are somewhere between 90 to 115 beats per minute, with more dance-y tunes in the higher end of that range. The beats should be nice and heavy as well, with base being one of the more prevalent components to these songs.

Mixing is also important – this gives the song an even fluidity about it, without one component or instrument standing out too much.

Here are some good hip hop dance songs that have proven to be highly successful in the hip hop dance world:
