Flo Rida, with his mixture of pop and hip-hop, seems to top the charts with every release and his latest album, Wild Ones, is no exception. Boasting current singles Whistle and Wild Ones (featuring SIA), his album is not lacking in chart-topping, club anthems.
Starting off the album, his two singles Whistle, and Wild Ones set the vibe for listeners. Whistle embraces a more relaxed, sound of summer vibe, which includes literally whistles. Of course, when rapping out the lyrics, Flo Rida requests’ “Can you blow my whistle, baby” may mean something far from the literal definition. This alluring track may not be for the club like the remainder of the album, but better suited for the beach lifestyle. A continuous chart topping hit nonetheless.
Up next, Flo Rida’s previous single Wild Ones featuring SIA is one we’ve all heard. A bit more upbeat than the previous, Whistle, I can declare that Wild Ones is the perfect track for a pool-side party.
Not quite reaching the charts yet, Let It Roll may be well on it’s way. Sampling Freddie King’s ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ in another upbeat track bound to get people on their feet.
Following is one his previous single’s Good Feeling which can be debated as if it’s sampling Avicii’s club anthem ‘Levels’, with Etta Jame’s ‘Something’s Got A Hold On Me’. Flo Rida raps each verse to his best, and includes an electronic bridge nearing the end of the track, leading up to the final chorus.
In My Mind (Part 2) featuring Georgi Kay follows. As Australian singer Georgi Kay sings each verse, Flo Rida offers a fast-paced chorus in between resulting in a song that’s destined to get stuck in your head.
Now what would a club anthem album be without Jennifer Lopez? The two have collaborated for Sweet Spot where J Lo starts off the track with a chorus, and continues to sing each identical chorus. Flo Rida sticks to his rapping each chorus regiment, and voila, another catchy club banger.
Nearing the end of the album, Thinking Of You starts by slowing the album down a notch, and includes Flo Rida singing during the chorus’, and rapping during the verses. A mellow star-gazing break-up song, Thinking Of You offers a different side of Flo Rida.
Currently on repeat on my iPhone, I Cry samples a chorus of ‘Cry (Just A Little)’ courtesy of Bingo Players. Following Flo Rida’s formula success (although quite predictable at this point in the album), Flo Rida raps the verses at a constant speedy pace, and lightly sings along Bingo Player’s sample of ‘Cry (Just A Little)’.
Ending off the album with front man Red Foo of LMFAO, Red Foo offers an interesting take of a ‘Party-Rock’ hook in this catchy track, Run. Like many others on the album, this track will making it’s way up the pop charts, and will be requested left and right to your local nightclub DJ. With T-Pain’s help co-writing the song, it’s easy to understand why this song will become (if not already) such a hit.
Overall Wild Ones generally follows Flo Rida’s chart topping, verse rapping, chorus sampling, formula for success with nearly each and every track wanting you to get your dancing shoes on.
