On Featuring we play music videos back-to-back.
This week Channel O brings you music videos by American-rapper, Flo Rida.
Check out his latest music video, I Cry.
Flo recently released his latest album Wild Ones.
This is what we thought about it.
Whistle is on the easy side of things and like the song implies, it’s garnished with catchy whistle laced hooks against a backdrop of modern dance-pop. The current club banger Wild Ones featuring the sultry vocals of Sia, follows almost immediately after that. It’s the type of song that will have you singing along even though you’ve never really listened to it before. Mind you, like the previous tracks, the next two tracks Let It Roll and Good Feeling also happen to be two of the four singles off Flo Rida’s fourth studio album.
Everything pretty much starts to sound the same after that and like an untied balloon let loose interest automatically deflates. This all depends on your threshold and tolerance to a somewhat recycled sound of course.
Nonetheless, Flo Rida may not be one of the world’s most rated or particularly “deep” artists but he’s definitely in the business of making hits. And at the end of the day that’s probably all that really matters in the world of mainstream music – selling albums. And in this case staying true to the fact that first impressions really do last.
Check out Featuring Flo Rida tonight at 8:30pm. The repeat will play on Saturday at 2pm, Sunday at 11am and then again at 7pm. The last repeat of Featuring Flo Rida will play on Thursday October 4th at 1pm, only on Channel O.
