Preview FloRida's R.O.O.T.S
I listened to FloRida's new album 2 or 3 times through yesterday and It's very good, better than I expected. His debut album Mail on Sunday had a handful of notable tracks ("Low", "In The Ayer" and "Elevator") but was collectively lacking, this is a very distinctive improvement. It's fairly more lighter and electronic than its predecessor. It features collaborations with big name artists like Nelly Furtado, Ne-Yo and Wyclef Jean. A full review will come later this week, in the meantime here are a couple highlights from the album:
"Jump" (Featuring Nelly Furtado) - Very fast paced, great kinetic bassline and well delivered catchy chorus by Furtado.
"Gotta Get It" - Again very fast paced. Strange robotically sung chorus, but very luring.
"Be On You" (Featuring Ne-Yo) - Currently my favorite track on here. Ne-Yo is AMAZING!
"Sugar" - I've liked this song for awhile now. Very summery and infectious.
"Rewind" (Featuring Wyclef Jean) - Nice recurring piano riff.
