When The Voice wanted to kick off its first live show of season 5 with a bang, they turned to none other than Flo Rida.

The rapper has quietly amassed a series of smash hits and collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the business, including Ke$ha, Pitbull, David Guetta, T-Pain, and countless others.

Monday night, he teamed up with Christina Aguilera to perform his latest single, the retro throwback “How I Feel.”

“I’ve done a couple of records with her, but to actually go out there and perform with her was definitely legendary,” Flo Rida told Carson Daly. “I’ve always been a fan of her work.”

“How I Feel” appears on Flo’s upcoming fifth studio album, The Perfect 10. The record features Pitbull, Carly Rae Jepsen, and fellow rapper Future.

“This is one of my greatest pieces of work. I wouldn’t name it Perfect 10 if it wouldn’t be the best for my fans.”

Flo Rida recently traveled to Las Vegas to shoot the “How I Feel” music video, which he says will be released sometime this week.

“I made sure I had the big band behind me and so it’s going to be something very different for the fans when they see the video.”

With a flashy brass band, a team of backup dancers, and the bright lights of Las Vegas, it’s hard to imagine that the 34-year-old came from such humble beginnings.

“My cousins, they collected so many cassette tapes and you know, back then on a cassette tape, they would always have, you know, the instrumentals. I started off just recording over the instrumentals,” he explained. “It sounded pretty hot, so I kept going and formed a high school group and after that I went solo, you know, and here it is.”

Flo Rida grew up with a family of gospel-singing sisters, which meant he had to keep his rhymes squeaky clean.

“You have the influence of your friends who might not choose the same route as yourself, so I mean, you always wonder, will mom get ahold of this tape?”


To this day, Flo Rida continues to separate himself from the pack with his chart-topping tracks.

“I have great passion for what I love: performing,” he explained. “Just doing these records that are definitely bringing hip hop and different genres of music together…I’m always just trying to maximize hip hop.”
