Music Review: Jump - Flo Rida ft. Nelly Furtado

Speed: 130 bpm

The DJ’s Take: Yes, the whole “Jump” idea has been done before, most notably with Kris Kross and House of Pain, but Flo Rida’s recent success suggests that his latest single should do pretty well. The hook is catchy, the bass is penetrating, and the beat pounds. I think this track might be a turning point for his career - similar kind of club sound as Right Round, so if the public ignores this one, it may be that he’s gone to the well one too many times. Will Flo Rida soon end up like Nelly and be relegated to making waves at celebrity softball games instead of on the charts and in the clubs? Stay tuned.
