Flo Rida Makes History Again, New Single Breaks Digital Record

Just one week after the three-headed monster – Eminem, Dr. Dre and 50 Cent – broke the digital sales record with their single “Crack A Bottle,” Miami rapper Flo Rida stole the title with his new single “Right Round.”

According to the Nielsen SoundScan the Atlantic rapper’s track will debut at no. 1 on the Hot Digital Songs Chart tomorrow (Feb. 19) after scoring 636,000 downloads in one week. The numbers surpass the sales for “Low”- his record breaking hit with T-Pain from last year, which moved 467,000 units.

As previously reported Em, Dre and Fif’s “Crack A Bottle” made history after the single was downloaded 418,000 times in its opening week. The song, which jumped 78 spots to no. 1 on the charts last week, will be included on 50’s upcoming album, Before I Self Destruct.

“Right Round” samples 80s group Dead Or Alive’s No. 1 hit “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record).” It is the first single on Flo Rida’s sophomore album R.O.O.T.S. (Routes of Overcoming the Struggle) which hits stores on April 7th. – Elan Mancini
