Flo Rida Brings ‘Wild Ones’ Hits to ‘TODAY’ Show Stage
A patriotic, blinged-out Flo Rida took the stage this morning as part of the ‘TODAY’ show’s summer concert series to promote his new album ‘Wild Ones’ and its first three singles.
The rapper showed up in style, belatedly celebrating the Fourth of July with an American flag tank top and a camo vest and shorts, in addition to some notable bling. His microphone stand sported an outline of the state of Florida and the word “Flo” spelled out in diamonds, while the mic itself had “Rida” on a gold wing.
The hip-hop star opened with ‘Good Feeling,’ the massive dance hit from 2011 featuring an Etta James sample. Later came the single ‘Whistle’ and the title track ‘Wild Ones,’ which he performed with one of his backup singers filling in for featured artist Sia. His shirt came off during ‘I Cry,’ a motivational song about perseverance.
“I’m a big fan of everyone on the album from Lil Wayne to Sia, the late, great Miss Etta James,” Flo Rida explained in an interview about his ‘Wild Ones’ release. When it comes to future collaborations, he said, “I wouldn’t mind working with Outkast. I’m a big fan of them. I went on tour with Beyonce before. I wouldn’t mind doing something with her.”
