"Low" was the debut single from rapper Flo Rida featuring songwriting and featured vocals from T-Pain. The combination of rapping, a huge bass line, and pop melodies became one of the biggest pop hit singles of all time. "Low" spent 10 weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and 13 weeks at the top of the digital single sales chart. Ultimately the song sold more than five million copies and for a time was the biggest selling digital single ever.
The lead single from Flo Rida's second studio album R.O.O.T.S. is built around a vocal motif from Dead Or Alive's classic hit "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)." It is also notable for an uncredited featured vocal from Ke$ha recorded before her solo career took off. Bruno Mars co-wrote the song. His contribution also occurred before his solo recording career began.
"Good Feeling" was the first single from what became Flo Rida's fourth studio album Wild Ones. It is built around a sample of vocals from Etta James' 1962 recording "Something's Got a Hold On Me" which was also used in Avicii's dance hit "Levels." The Etta James sample was also used in the 2006 song "Finally Moving" by Pretty Lights. "Good Feeling" was produced by Dr. Luke and includes a dub step breakdown.
Flo Rida collaborated with Australian singer-songwriter Sia for "Wild Ones." The slightly melancholic sounding dance pop single became another huge Flo Rida hit. "Wild Ones" was a huge worldwide hit peaking in the top 10 on pop singles charts in at least 20 different countries from Israel to Ireland.
Flo Rida recorded "Club Can't Handle Me" for the soundtrack to the film Step Up 3D. He collaborated with hot dance pop producer David Guetta and the result was a huge international pop hit. "Club Can't Handle Me" became Flo Rida's second #1 hit single in the UK and was certified double platinum for sales in the US.
Flo Rida's single "Whistle" received a significant amount of commentary for containing sexually suggestive lyrics. It was released as the third single from the album Wild Ones. The whistling hook is one of the most addictive of Flo Rida's pop melodies. The primary producer of the record is DJ Frank E.
Flo Rida's debut album Mail On Sunday included collaborations with a range of top producers. One of those was Timbaland. "Elevator" includes trademark elements of Timbaland productions. The intro of the song includes a piano melody based on the theme to John Carpenter's classic horror movie Halloween.
Flo Rida's second hit single from the album Only One Flo (Part 1) was co-written and co-produced by Dr. Luke. It also includes songwriting contributions from Bruno Mars. The guest vocal is courtesy of Akon. The opening beat hook is very similar to the hook from Katy Perry's #1 hit "California Gurls."
