The fourth part of the series is for all those couples who aren’t into those slow numbers but are looking for something more upbeat and hip hop. It’s no surprise that the majority of the couples prefer a slow number because a romantic ballad feels like a natural choice and you don’t need to be a pro dancer for one of those. But a slow number is not meant for everyone and some couples need a more upbeat or hip hop number to meet their personalities. If you are thinking of fun, the fast number might make your first dance less romantic, then you are absolutely wrong!!

There are a dozen or more upbeat songs out there that make the perfect choice for the first dance. They are fun, fast, and beautiful and might require you to have a little more dance practice than just swaying back and forth. No, you don’t need a fully choreographed number, but just a little more practice before the D-day with your partner!

So, here is the list of some of the best upbeat, hip-hop, and pop songs for your special day. You can choose any of these numbers and can be assured that you will set the floor on fire!
