Album: Flo Rida, Wild Ones (Atlantic)
Few rappers have colluded in the ongoing Guetta-cisation of popular music as eagerly as Flo Rida, who has ridden the pulsing disco surge of "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones" to significant chart success over the past year.
His latest, "Whistle", takes a sidestep with its acoustic guitar and tedious single-entendre hook, but there are plenty more brutal stompers to spare on Wild Ones, not least the striding gym-bunny pump of "Run" and the galloping grooves of "I Cry" and "In My Mind (Part 2)", for the latter of which Georgi Kay offers a suitably android Lana Del Rey impression.
