    Soul/Jazz + Shitty producers + Autotune + Flo Rida’s tone + Flo Rida’s rapping style = a mess

    why is he a flop ? u dickhead the man is still dropping hot songs…but you are a flopperdeflop u idiot..stop hating….flo rida aint never done nobody wrong …he is just him and his music …u can tell he appreciates where he is at @ and seems very humble

    shitty producers?
    are u f***** kiddin with me?

    Avicii is one of the biggest upcoming producers out there..

    However I dont believe the single is gonna do well.. Cuz Avicii released “ID” a long time ago.. And they’ve just taken the song and added flo ridas voice to it(it actually gets worse by that)…

    That flo rida is trying to talk about his inspiration is just bs.. flo rida is simply a cheap rapper who says whatever anyone says he should do.
