Good afternoon kiddos its time for Booker’s “Sample This” and I sure hope you are finding this information useful because I’m busting my butt over here!
This is a weekly blog of music that we share with you that has been sampled from original music going as far back as the 60′s.
We realize that most of you babies weren’t born until the early & late 90′s so what better way for us to slap you with a little wisdom than this awesome feature?
This week sample comes from digital download king Flo Rida and his recent single ‘Good Feeling.”
This single is unique from the previous sampled music I’ve mentioned in past lessons because its actually sampled from two different songs.
“Good feeling” has a mixture of sampling from Swedish DJ [lastfm link_type=""]Avicii[/lastfm]‘s single “Level as well as the late[lastfm link_type=""] Etta James [/lastfm]’1962 hit “Something’s Got A Hold Of Me.”
Shortly after the Jan 20 2012 death of[lastfm link_type=""] Etta James [/lastfm],Flo-Rida dedicated the song in her memory.
“Good Feeling” currently sits at # 3 on the Hot 100, #2 on Hot digital downloads and has reached the Top 5 in nine different countries worldwide.
Flo Rida is currently working on his fourth studio album Only One Flo (Part 2) which is expected to hit stores in March and will feature artist Pitbull, Pleasure P, Ne-Yo, Usher [/lastfm]Tank, [lastfm link_type=""]Trina [/lastfm]and LMFAO.
