    I vote Samba. I tend to like the "slower" and more subdued music for
    dancing Samba, which leaves time for "settling." This one also has that
    "middle-eastern" sound and actually feels more easy for dancing Samba
    than the other one (Hey Baby) because it flows better.

    They play this quite a bit at WCS, but it's hard to catch someone
    who can do a decent Samba (movement, motion) there...

    We Don't Talk Any More - Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez - 2016



    And following the Sia link, another soft Samba...

    Bird Set Free - Sia - 2016

    No WCS expert here, but that Charlie Puth & Selena Gomez song is exactly what I think a stereotypical WCS song is.

    Sia seems to love some variation of the samba beat in a lot of her songs.

    I would it call a cross-over of tip-hop with zouk.

    I know! I was at the studio last night and they had a competitive kids class dancing to this song.

    This one would be fun to choreograph to.

    Shakira - Chantaje (2016)

    Imitation. The BEST "Black Betty" is by Spider Bait IMO.
