Doesn’t it seem like Flo Rida
chucks a song out every other week or so? No? Yes? Green? Chinchilla?
Anyway, here’s Flo Rida chucking out a new song called “GDFR” — it stands for “going down for real” — which features Sage The Gemini and the really classy line “girls getting wetter than Katrina.” Sorry, fellas, but it’s always going to be too soon the exploit a colossal tragedy for a lyric in your dumb-as-shit waste of three minutes passing itself off as music.
Anyway, Flo or whoever produced this racket left no kitchen sink out of the mix: We’ve got horns! We’ve got a trap beat! We’ve got one of these bozos singing just like that guy Wanz‘s “I’m gonna pop some tags” bit from Macklemore‘s “Thrift Shop” — practically note for note! How can you resist? Listen below! More »
Earlier this month we warned you
that the upcoming Seth Rogen
would boast a brand new Flo Rida
song on its soundtrack, but little did we realize it would be accompanied by a feature from a diva with a name as classy as StayC Reign
So today sees the official release of the soundtrack, and, thus, Flo Rida and StayC’s “Freaking Out,” a relentless EDM cut produced by TJ Rozdilsky (a DJ who simply goes by TJR). On it, StayC’s voice rises to levels of hysteria as she shrieks over and over and over and over and over that she thinks she’s freaking out because of “too many drinks, too many rounds.”
It’s the stuff dreams are made of — if your dreams are anything like this — and you can get drunk on Flo Rida’s latest below. More »
If your idea of a good time is the sheer awesomeness
that could only come from a meeting of the minds involving Seth Rogen
, Zac Efron
and Flo Rida
, then, goddamn, are you ever in luck. The soundtrack to upcoming married-couple-fighting-with-local-college-frat comedy Neighbors
features a bunch a songs you’ve already heard before (Ke$ha
‘s “Die Young”
‘s “London Bridge” among them), as well as the lone new tune: Flo Rida’s “Freaking Out.” Wow, friends.
The only thing that could make this more awesomer? A Pitbull feature and production by RedOne. (Duh.) More »
has maintained a steady ascent into Pop Stardom since we first met his smooth vocals, assisting B.o.B.
on 2010′s breakout single “Nothin’ On You.”
Unbeknownst to the world back then, Bruno was not only an amazing singer, but also a killer songwriter and hitmaking producer. The Los Angeles transplant aligned with creative collective The Smeezingtons
(who also include Phillip Lawrence
and Ari Levine
). Together, The Smeezingtons were responsible for a number of solid tracks (both producing and songwriting) from stars like Alicia Keys
, Justin Bieber
, Far East Movement
, Mike Posner
, and many, many more.
Currently, however, we know Bruno Mars for his ability to craft his own hits. Who hasn’t caught a glimpse of the Hawaii native on his Moonshine Jungle Tour by now? Who doesn’t own a copy of Unorthodox Jukebox (and Doo-Wops & Hooligans while we’re at it)? Bruno Mars has evolved into a national treasure, and as he readies his halftime performance at Super Bowl XLVIII, we take a little trip down memory lane. Let’s revisit some songs that you had no idea were either produced, written, or co-written by Bruno Mars (along with The Smeezingtons). You’ll be surprised by some of the hits that had the seal of the almighty pompadour. More »
hits Sin City for his high-rollin’ “How I Feel” visual. Directed by Shane Drake
, the glossy video was filmed at Planet Hollywood resort and casino in Las Vegas and finds the muscular MC living it up with sexy ladies and his extended entourage.
The catchy jam, which features a sample of Nina Simone‘s “Feeling Good”, lends itself to the glamorous location and the rapper looks extremely dapper in his blue suit and trademark sunglasses. What a shame Christina Aguilera couldn’t make a cameo. The unlikely duo looked so good together when they performed it on The Voice! Watch up top. More »
“Beautiful!” “Magic!” and “Special!” were just a few of the ways that the coaches described The Voice
on Monday night, stopping just short of calling it the most important show of a generation (though it was certainly implied). Coaches Christina Aguilera
, Cee Lo
, Adam Levine
and Blake Shelton
definitely only had positive things to say about The Voice
, one another and each and every contestant. (On a very related note, don’t forget to tune in to The Voice
on Thursday, for a special live results scheduled against the first X Factor
live results. It all comes together.)
Whatever the reason may have been for the love fest, there was nothing a contestant could do to get criticism from these coaches. Even calling out their own flaws didn’t work! While an overall strong night for Team Blake and Team Adam, the contestants were far from the perfection that the coaches experienced. More »
Need a hit of fizzy Euro-pop complete with an unnecessary feature from a confused MC? Look no further than Twiins
‘ classily titled “1Nite Stand 2Nite”. The cheesy synth-pop delight boasts a rap from American mentor Flo Rida
, so this work of modern poetry could be blasting from a radio near you in the not too distant future.
I’m sure you want to know more about these icons of glamour. Well, the Slovakian sisters gained international attention with a Eurovision entry called “I’m Still Alive” and later caught the ear (more likely the eye) of Flo Rida while on tour in Germany. Cut to 2013 and the lovely ladies are Miami residents with a catchy song about casual sex. Talk about living the dream! Listen after the jump. More »

When it came to the chart-topping singles of 2012, some artists, like fun.
, Carly Rae Jepsen
and Taylor Swift
, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the very first time. Others, like Adele
, Kelly Clarkson
and Maroon 5
, were no strangers to the dizzying highs of the pop chart’s upper tier.
Altogether, 13 lucky songs made it to #1 — down one from last year. And several have since gone on to be nominated for Grammys. Maroon 5′s “One More Night” and Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” spent the most time at the top (9 weeks), while on the other end of the spectrum, three other singles spent one solitary week in the peak position.
So how will you remember the biggest songs that sound-tracked 2012? Idolator editors Robbie Daw, Sam Lansky, Carl Williot and Erika Brooks-Adickman all racked their brains and tried to sum up each in one word. (It’s harder than you think!) Catch their abbreviated, retrospective reviews below. More »
Carly Rae Jepsen
and a clutch of other hitmakers have been added to 2012′s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Hosted By Ryan Seacrest
, which will be headlined by the still Red
-hot Taylor Swift
. (We guess it’s only fitting that we’ll close out the year with one final performance of 2012′s longest-running chart-topper
, CRJ’s “Call Me Maybe.”
, Flo Rida, Brandy, OneRepublic
and Neon Trees
will also be there to keep the diaper-wearing Times Square revelers grooving until the ball drops at midnight.
We’re glad to see the annual television spectacle, created in 1974 by Dick Clark, will live on after his unfortunate passing earlier this year. The beloved TV personality — who hosted the live NYE show for 33 years — will also be honored with the two-hour special, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve Celebrates Dick Clark, hosted by Fergie and Jenny McCarthy (um, what?!) starting at 8pm ET.
