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.
