Flo Rida Turns Around

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Originally released in November 2010, Flo Rida’s “Turn Around (5, 4, 3, 2, 1)” makes its official debut on the Swedish singles tally this week at No.54. The Haiti-American rapper and singer Flo Rida, née Tramar Tillard (1979), got his breakthrough in 2007 with the US No.1 “Low” (feat. T-Pain). He has released three studio albums to date and was the first one to break Ke$ha on “Right Round” – a No.1 hit in 2009.

His collaboration with David Guetta yielded one top ten hit earlier this year, but “Turn Around” only made it to No.98 on the Billboard Hot 100. The track reached the top twenty in Australia and Germany.

WelcheMusic is eager to see if the follow-up single “Who Dat Girl” (featuring Akon) might just changed that. Released as the follow-up to “Turn Around,” it has so far peaked at No.29 in the US.
