Fans of ‘80s pop are likely to burst out laughing upon hearing the hook to Flo Rida‘s latest single – Right, Round takes its inspiration from Dead or Alive’s 1984 hit, You Spin Me Round (Like a Record), changing the lyrics to describe the rapper’s reaction to a pole-dancing performance. Flo describes the head-spinningly beautiful stripper who has him throwing his money around (to the tune of several grand). The emcee may be dismayed at the lightness of his bankroll in the morning, but this energetic cut is catchy enough to convince listeners that it was all worth it. Mr. Luke goes all-out on the production tip, packing his propulsive beat with a dizzying array of synths, and the result is a record that’s sure to get its share of spins in clubs nationwide. If Right, Round is any indication, Flo Rida’s forthcoming sophomore LP, R.O.O.T.S. (Routes of Overcoming the Struggle) will offer fans ample opportunity to get out on the dancefloor when it hits stores in April.
