Bulldog Bash is this weekend and that means we’re just four days away from having the most exciting act in recent history headline Starkville’s largest event of the Fall semester. This Friday, Flo Rida will be hitting the stage to get fans hyped up for Auburn and I could not be any more excited.

2008 is when Flo Rida dropped his first single and the world has not been the same since. “Low” was a jam featuring the likes of T-Pain in all of his auto-tuned glory. Almost every year since then, he has had at least one song hit the Billboard Top 10 for at least a week. Incredible.

But, that leaves us a lot of uncertainty of what it is we can actually expect to hear from Flo Rida on Friday. So, with that said, below I have compiled my Top 5 Flo Rida songs that I hope to hear at Bulldog Bash, a power ranking of sorts. I encourage you to listen to them all and it never is a bad idea to go to his artist page on Spotify and hit “Shuffle Play” to really get the full effect of his talent.

RANKINGS:

  1. Zillionaire (2016) - Now I know what you’re thinking, yes, it is his newest song, but just like fine wine, Flo Rida’s talents have only gotten better with age. This song is catchy, promotes chivalrous morals and is generally a happy song. This song can instantly turn any occasion into a party with its exciting trumpets and unrealistic goals.
  2. Wild Ones ft. Sia (2012) - Absolutely outstanding song. If you can listen to this song without nodding/bobbing or otherwise moving a body part in rhythm with this song, you’re probably the cops and I’m staying away from you. Sia has an incredible voice and it makes me happy every time she belts out “HEY, I HEARD YOU WERE A WILD ONE OOOOOOOOOOOOOO”. Gets me every time.
  3. Low ft. T-Pain (2008) - The beginning of an illustrious career. Iconic. There are so many things about this song that draw up mid-2000’s nostalgia its unreal. I was in 7th grade when this song come out and it was one of the first songs I ever downloaded on iTunes. Also, T-Pain was way too quick to fall off as an artist. The dude made classics only. RIP 2000’s rappers.
  4. Club Can’t Handle Me ft. David Guetta (2010) - If this isn’t a dance club classic, then I don’t know what is. You combine the talents of techno mastermind of David Guetta and the lyrical genius of Flo Rida and you instantly have a certified jam. This is one of Flo Rida’s four singles that reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 for at least a week.
  5. Good Feeling (2012) - This is the ultimate pregame song. Gets the good vibes flowing, has the beat to get you pumped up and the techno breakdown at the end that we all needed but didn’t know we wanted until we had it. Just sitting here writing this while listening to the song, my heart rate increased at least 20 beats per minute. Hype.

Honorable mentions: Right Round (2009), I Cry (2012), My House (2015), Whistle (2012) & GDFR ft Sage The Gemini & Lookas (2015)
