“I Don’t Like It, I Love It” by Flo Rida, along with Robin Thicke & Verdine White, is such a great dance song to play during a contemporary dance set. The beat completely drives this fabulous song. Robin Thicke sounds terrific. Flo Rida’s bit of hip hop/rap juxtaposed with Robin Thicke’s lush sound JUST works. The whistle is clearly reminiscent of Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jagger. I truly love that they honor Verdine White, the longstanding bass player for Earth Wind & Fire. The song hits the ground running, with a solo Latin guitar, building to a full rhythm including the whistling.
The “four on the floor” kick drum gives the song its strong danceability. Its popularity allows guests to sing along with the easy-to-learn “I don’t like it…” lyrics. It’s really a perfect dance song that’s guaranteed to keep the dance floor packed. The beauty of this song is that it is exactly what it is, a classic dance hit. Mission accomplished.
It truly does get guests flooding the dance floor at every party, wedding or corporate event.
Check out the lyrics:
I don’t like it, I love it, love it, love it, uh oh, so good it hurts
I don’t want it, I gotta, gotta have it, uh oh
When I can’t find the words, I just go, [Whistling/melody]
I don’t like it, no, I love it [Whistling/melody]
I don’t like it, no, I love it
All out, turn the beat up, Hey now I’m glad to meet ya
Turn up girl, blow the speaker
Yeah up, think about it now, blow the speaker
I’ll speak louder, let’s get wild tonight
Billionaire bottles, we just down em like
Ain’t no problem, all my roads are right. All right, all right
I don’t like it, I love it. I got another comin’ in my budget
I got a anaconda in my truck fit, don’t push it, don’t push it
Cause I’m a hit it til I jackpot, that’s right, wax on baby wax off, act right
You can put it on the black card, all night, and I’ll spend it, I’ll spend it .
Great dance hit, don’t you think? Leave me a comment to let me know what you think of it,
