Top 10 Flo Rida Songs

Rapper Flo Rida was the club king of the late 2000s and 2010s. There was not a dance-pop banger on the radio during that time that was not at least Flo Rida adjacent. The artist pioneered a feel-good sound punctuated by all-star collaborations, unthinkable samples, and untouchable beats.

What would be considered “throwbacks” are still unmistakably and unironically hits to this day. Why? Because of Flo Rida’s larger-than-life talent, characterized by good-timing themes, carefree verses, and irresistibly danceable sounds.

From a star that will never go out of style, here are 10 Flo Rida essentials.

10. “No Bad Days” (feat. Jimmie Allen)

Flo Rida’s latest single, “No Bad Days,” is a feel-good foray into the country rap canon. Featuring country sensation Jimmie Allen, the song is already a thudding beat and foot stomp away from being a Flo Rida essential.

9. “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” (feat. Robin Thicke, Verdine White)

Flo Rida knows how to recruit the help of some of music’s brightest stars and biggest legends. “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” is the perfect example, a star-studded song featuring singer Robin Thicke and Earth, Wind & Fire’s bassist Verdine White.

Equipped with complex grooves and steady beats, “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” is a fun and fiery good time.

8. “Club Can’t Handle Me” (feat. David Guetta)

The building club banger, “Club Can’t Handle Me,” dominated the 2010s. Enlisting the help of famed producer David Guetta, the song is an unstoppable anthem for the life of the party.

7. “GDFR” (feat. Sage the Gemini, Lookas)

“GDFR,” or “Goin’ Down for Real,” is a bop full of rich hooks and intricate samples. The sleeper hit of 2015, “GDFR” evokes images of sweaty bodies in dark clubs, only visible when spotlighted by blinding lasers.

6. “Right Round” (feat. Ke$ha)

A theme song of the late 2000s, “Right Round” infiltrated every public space—past the clubs, piped across Top 40 radio, and into grocery stores and middle school dances. This song was everywhere, and surprisingly so given its suggestive lyrics. But “Right Round” proves a hit is a hit no matter what.

5. “Good Feeling”

The beat-driven, dancefloor-ready banger, “Good Feeling” was another to soundtrack the 2010s. Aside from its sheer danceability, the song also opened up a new generation of fans to the powerhouse vocal stylings of Etta James as it samples her 1962 hit, “Something’s Got a Hold on Me.”

4. “Wild Ones” (feat. Sia)

Punctuated by Sia’s sugary rasp, Flo Rida’s “Wild Ones” is a spacey dance-pop anthem rearing for take-off. With intense beats and otherworldly synths, the song sounds unlike anything in Flo Rida’s catalog but slaps just the same.

3. “My House”

Stripped back and driven by piano and a sparse beat, “My House” finds Flo Rida taking it down a notch from his trademark, but at times overpowering, ensembles and samples. Even toned down, the song is still a triumph.

2. “Whistle”

Characterized by its acoustic melody, whistling flourishes, and references to fellatio, “Whistle” is another tuned-down hit from the rapper that saw success in its catchy simplicity.

1. “Low” (feat. T-Pain)

A titan of a 2000s song, “Low” is the essence of all essentials. It will never go out of style. Ever. Even if you hate it, you love it. Featuring T-Pain, “Low” is an instantly recognizable, forever danceable bop that will stand the test of time.
