Mail On Sunday by Flo Rida on Apple Music

EDITORS’ NOTES

Pieced together like a last-minute party, and about as fun, Mail On Sunday gathers up the hottest rap and R&B artists who have had a smash hit on the charts in the last six months and does its best to tap into the sound and mood of early 2008. Pure, unadulterated hedonism is the name of Flo Rida’s game. Sex and alcohol fold into a single come-on in “Ms Hangover:” “She had Hennessy hips, and Belve’ eyes / Grey Goose on her lips, and cognac thighs.” Flo is at his strongest when an expert producer is helping him focus, and the album’s first half is chock full of delirious party-starters, including the Timbaland-helmed “Elevator,” and “Roll,” produced by J.R. Rotem. Left to his own devices, however, Flo flounders. (“Me & U” is soupy and shapeless, for instance.) Flo Rida fares best in the company of his pals. With T-Pain in tow, “Low” has an unstoppably catchy hook, while Lil’ Wayne lends his irresistibly eccentric persona to the grandiose “American Superstar.” While it remains to be seen if people will still be listening to Flo Rida in ten years, Mail On Sunday will stand as a time capsule of club music in March, 2008.

About Flo Rida

Feel-good party rapper Flo Rida was one of the best-selling artists of the 2000s, notching a handful of international hit singles and Billboard chart-toppers. Unsurprisingly a native Floridian, the MC toured as a teenager with 2 Live Crew's Fresh Kid Ice and began popping up on high-profile mixtapes by 2006 (most notably on DJ Khaled's "Bitch I'm from Dade County," where he joined Rick Ross, Trick Daddy, Trina, and Dre of Cool & Dre). Signed to the Atlantic-distributed Poe Boy that year, he recorded Mail on Sunday, which was released in March of 2008. "Low," featuring T-Pain, was the album's lead single; it reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100. A year later he returned with the album R.O.O.T.S. (Route of Overcoming the Struggle), featuring the massive club hit "Round," which introduced the world to Kesha. Only 1 Flo, Pt. 1 appeared in 2010, with some tracks produced by dance music stars like Axwell, Benny Blanco, and David Guetta. On his 2012 release, Wild Ones, productions from Dr. Luke, Avicii, and Axwell continued along this dance direction. The album offered up three big hits: "Whistle," "Good Feeling," and "Wild Ones," featuring Sia. Three years later, Flo Rida reappeared with his fourth EP, My House, which included the eponymous hit single. A series of singles followed, including "Hello Friday" with Jason Derulo, "At Night" with Liz Elias and Akon, "Zillionaire," and "Cake" featuring 99 Percent. ~ Andy Kellman
