Flo Rida Performs Already-Smashing New Single “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” with Robin Thicke on “The Today Show”: Watch
Looks like Flo Rida will be slaying the charts again soon and with a new single. The time of “G.D.F.R” is over and the follow-up (from the "My House" EP), the Robin Thicke-assisted “I Don’t Like It, I Love It”, has the potential to come close to the success of the party-song that reached no. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year. Why I say this? The super groovy “I Don’t Like It, I Love It”, with only a few days since its official release, has rocketed to the Top 40 on the US iTunes main chart – already surpassing “G.D.F.R” which is down at #50. The quick rise can only mean one thing; that the US audience has ‘connected’ with the song, and that they are is feel-ing-it. Radio proves it too; “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” is climbing positions fast and it is already at #31 on the pop chart. A monster hit is coming, y’all. I’m warning you now.
Flo Rida, knowing big promo is key for the new single right now, performed a mini-concert on NBC’s “The Today Show” on Friday morning, July 3. The setlist consisted of “I Don’t Like It, I Love It” and “Wild Ones”. For the latter he did not have Sia there, but for the former; Robin Thicke made an appearance – evidently. Robin is also a very interested player in the success of “I Don’t Like It, I Love It”. I mean, he is the official collabator of the song, duh, I know, but ever since the disaster that was his “Paula” album I know he’s been dreaming of the perfect moment to make a comeback and clean his image and Flo Rida is giving it to him.
During the “Today” performance, Robin looked casual smart in his tieless suit look as Flo Rida, escorted by two dancer females, did his catchy rap thing.
