Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Flo Rida's single "Let It Roll" is another catchy club beat that's fine for older tweens and teens. There's no iffy language or content, other than a brief mention of being in the club and having a drink to "toast to the good times."
What's the story?
Resident club beat guru Flo Rida releases "LET IT ROLL," yet another single for the dance floor (or riding in your car with the windows down), about having a good time in the club and in everyday life. It's the fourth single from the album Wild Ones, and there's an accompanying video that features L.A.-based comedian Keith Apicary gyrating and dancing in various clubs to spread the contagious track to the masses.
Is it any good?
Flo Rida has an obvious ability to create infectious club beats that are hits for a reason. However, there's nothing new with "Let It Roll," with its fast lyrics and thumping bass backdrop. Snippets of Freddie King's hit "(Come On) Let the Good Times Roll" are a welcomed addition, but this single, as much as it will certainly be played on the radio, is still just more of the same.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the way that some of Flo Rida's music has changed to become more mainstream. Do you think it's important for singers to stay true to their genre, or is it OK to change their styles to appeal to more people?
Flo Rida is one of those artists who can float between hip-hop, rap, and pop. Do you like it when an artist shifts between genres, or should they just stick to one?
