Flo Rida released his fourth studio album on July 3 named “Wild Ones.” The album features the smash singles “Good Feeling” and “Wild Ones.” Flo Rida, a rapper who hails from Carol City, FL, burst onto the scene in 2008 with the hit singles “Low,” “Elevator,” and “In the Ayer” on his album “Mail on Sunday.” His singles are wildly successful due to their heavy play in clubs around the country due to his mix of techno and pop lyrics.
His sidekicks on the R You On The List? tour are also no strangers to success. Cee Lo Green, the vocal coach on the hit reality show The Voice, became wildly popular as part of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley. The group released the platinum album “St. Elsewhere” in 2006, which featured the hit single “Crazy.” He later released the successful album “The Lady Killer” in 2010 with its most successful single being “F— You.”
B.O.B reached worldwide fame in 2010 with his debut studio album “B.O.B:The Adventures of Bobby Ray” with the smash hit single “Nothing on You” and “Airplanes.” In 2012 he released his sophomore album “Strange Clouds.” The current single on the album, “Both of Us,” features country singer Taylor Swift.
The two lesser known acts who will join Flo Rida in select cities are Karmin and Kirko Bangz.
