Album Review: Flo Rida – Wild Ones

ImageFrom one of his interviews, Miami-based rapper Flo Rida said that he has come up with the title “Wild Ones” because he thinks that he can generate a lot of No.1s with this 4th studio album.  Though he has yet to top the Billboard’s charts, Tramar Dillard (his real name) should keep his hopes up.  Besides, some of his songs from this album are already being heavily played and heating the airwaves.

  1. Whistle – Flo Rida is known for his hard-thumping dance tracks like Low and Right Round.  Surprisingly, this new album starts with an acoustic guitar and somehow a slow and relaxing beat.  I’m not complaining though.
  2. Wild Ones Feat. Sia – It seems like I have been hearing this song all year round and I don’t get tired listening to it.  New Pop singer Sia tremendously helped this song and elevated this summer song to greater heights.
  3. Let It Roll – And the party just keeps on rolling!  With a sample of blues guitarist Freddie King’s Let The Good Times Roll being played well in the chorus, this sounds like another Flo Rida dance club rock and roll hit.
  4. Good Feeling – Probably one of those very familiar tunes, because this song has been released almost a year ago.  Another high energy dance track, perfect for clubbing and/or working out in the gym, or any adrenaline-filled activity. Hehe.
  5. In My Mind Pt. 2 Feat. Georgi Kay – I haven’t heard of Georgi Kay.  Probably she is an Indie pop-jazz artist.  Anyway, her voice is soothing and is perfectly blended with Flo Rida’s rap.  But I think the beat is too joyous and over-indulgent.
  6. Sweet Spot Feat. Jennifer Lopez – Wow. J.Lo’s vocal hook is too hot to handle.  She’s definitely smokin’! Hot.
  7. Thinking Of You – After several disco dance tunes, it’s time to cool things down.  I consider this as an R&B track.  It’s a pretty damn good cool track.
  8. I Cry – This sounds like a mash-up of Bingo Players’ Cry (Just A Little) and one of Flo Rida’s old songs.  Having said that, I think this song suits well with the rest of the album for it sounded the same as Wild Ones and Good Feeling.
  9. Run Feat. RedFoo – Borrowing LMFAO’s RedFoo and his group’s signature vibe at the beginning of this track, the album ends with a high energy, head bopping tune.  I don’t know if anyone can keep up with this adrenaline rush of an album.  Party Rock!

 

Final Thoughts: With several smash hits already playing, I think this is one of Flo Rida’s biggest successes to date.  If you are into dance music and club hits, this one is for you.
