You can say what you will about Flo Rida, one hit wonder, only makes songs for the girls, hip pop….. whatever. This dude makes good f-ing music regardless, if i’m in the club or at some party i don’t want to hear no intellectual hip-hop or meaningful music, i just want to get down. His first CD was bomb, i own it. Needless to say i’ll be buying this one to. You can pick it up here on March 31st, as well as your local BestBuy, etc.
