Flo-Rida Sets Digital Download Sales Record

Flo-Rida, a native of the same Carol City neighborhood that produced Rick Ross, has set a new record for digital sales with his smash single “Low” featuring T-Pain. According to Billboard.com, “Low” sold 470,000 copies, smashing the previous single week record of 294,000 set by Black Eyed Peas front woman Fergie with her single “Fergalicious.” Understandably, the track also managed to land atop the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart for the second week in a row, once again beating out powerhouse Alicia Keys’ “No One.” The Florida rapper’s achievement caps a week of staggering sales for digital music in which all but five songs on the Hot 100 chart posted triple digit increases. Notably, “Low” was also the No. 1 most downloaded song on the iTunes music store for a month straight. Flo-Rida’s debut album, Mail On Sunday is due out this February through Poe Boy/Atlantic Records.

    T-Pain has done it again. Shout out to Florida, yall came up big this past 2 years. Plies, Flo Rida, Ross, Dj Khaled, Trick Daddy, Trina. Way to hold down the south.

    • big dick cheney

      Whoa lets keep DJ Khaled out of the props you givin homie. Nobody respects him in the industry except for the rappers’ dicks that he on and they dont hardly respect him.

      He was in the MAKE IT RAIN video holdin an umbrella over Fat Joe’s head.C’mon mannnn!! YOu gets no respect for that. Fuck DJ Khaled and most importantly, fuck terror squad. Them niggaz ain’t shit witout BIG PUN.

  • King Joffy Joe

    It’s nice and all to see another black person doing well but lets tell the truth, this guy kinda sucks and if it wasn’t T-Pain, the single would have went nowhere. And I bet he won’t stay hot enough to even make an apperance at the BET Awards. Sad but true.

  • niggafromemphis

    That songshould have been t pain featuring Florida and it really is techically.I heard beanie siegal and free talkin about how def jam fuckin them around.It’s not just them, a whole lot of people are being thrown awy like yesterday trash,and still have contracts and albums to fulfill.Then you got niggas (no disrespect but…fuck it FLORIDA) who you don’t know from a can of paint and wouldn’t know him if you saw him or heard him,and all of sudden,what…he supposed to be the next snoop or somethin.I got love for all those in the Fla except for Khalid.I got a million dollar question to every one reading this:WHat hood is Khalid actually from?

  • Great Zeee

    That whole shit is a lie cause i never heard that song in my life.

  • rosco
