Flo Rida comes 'Right Round' to the top of the charts

The No. 1 single in the country right now, in case you haven’t noticed, is a horrendous rap remake of Dead or Alive’s "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)." Yes, a record-breaking 636,000 people downloaded Flo Rida’s "Right Round" last week. What does all this say about us as a society? Mainly that we really, really enjoy cheesetastic ’80s hair-pop hits in whatever form we can get ‘em, I guess. (Check out "Right Round" below, if you must — though this YouTube clip may soon fall victim to Flo Rida’s label’s copyright-claiming spree, which in this case is a true public service.)

Truth is, Flo Rida is not the world’s worst rapper. He can ride a beat, just like his name says. But this song is straight-up awful. Tell me, am I going crazy here? Were any of you out there among the proud 636,000 who paid for this thing?

    I actually very much enjoy the song. It has a good beat, fun to dance to in the clubs, and is really catchy.

  • Gretchen Weiners

    It’s absolutely awful. American music is in a sad, sad, sad state.

  • newm exico

    the only thing more ridiculous then his name is this song

  • Matt

    Hate it. Why do all these rappers have to sample songs from the past? Can’t they write their own music??

  • FreeAgent

    Hate Matt’s comment. Can’t rap haters come up with anything more original than saying that they “can’t write their own music”?
    That being said, I wouldn’t pay for this.

  • UGH

    Catchy pop/dance/rap = 4-6 weeks from now, nobody will listen to it and be sick of it if they hear it. No longevity, no originality, no substance.

    • Hugh

      Ha ha, it was number one for all of those 6 weeks, and stayed on the charts for many more!

  • Dave

    Haha, my friend downloaded this last week and played it, oh, about 20 times over the weekend while we were away. We teased him, and he just said that we’ll hear it all over the place this week. No matter what you think about the song, looks like was right…

  • Billy

    Uck, I’m so sick of people who whine about the state of music today. I don’t think Flo Rida set out to make introspective, thought-provoking music. It’s clear his intention is to create music to have fun to. This type of music has existed as long as music has. No one wants to go to parties or clubs and listen to Radiohead or Damien Rice. The song is meant to be fun and light, nothing more. So lighten up.

  • Winona

    It does kinda have a catchy beat and I can see it being a club hit, but I can’t understand anything Flo Rida is rapping – I much prefer the original. Guess I’m just an old fuddy-duddy.

  • Aaron

    It’s catchy as hell

  • cookiemac

    So, is Flo-rida from Florida originally

  • Sara

    Agreed. I hate that song and I have a high-ish tolerance for songs of that nature (Apple Bottom Jeans—now THAT I can groove to–at least work out to, anyway)…

  • Joke Grenade

    Maybe Chris Brown can do a remake of Prodigy.
    Wait for it…..

  • jolini

    I am so glad I am not the only one who hates this. I kept hearing about this hot new song from FloRida and then when I finally heard it I was very confused. It is AWFUL.

  • Rakeem

    I hate this song, but I knew as soon as I heard it that it was a hit.
