Garbage Verses Can't be Recycled

I've got a Bad Feeling that the track below may end up on @TaioCruz's upcoming third studio album. I say that because @official_flo's verses are 100% copied and pasted from his new single Good Feeling. Now I've already vented about what became of that track with the tease surrounding the initial beat-jacking of Avicii, but it'd be more than a little embarrassing to use the same verse on two radio singles. The more I listen the more I'm just confused. Is it a B side or demo? Remix? I have no idea because the beat even sounds like Good Feeling and follows the same formula that a lot of Taio hits did with the upbeat club rhythms.

I'm not one to be quick to judge or over-react, though, and I'll admit there's probably more shock value than truth in that last paragraph, but C'mon Man!!! (#CCVoice) My guess is the use of Flo's recycled verses are more of a placeholder and if the track ever makes it to the light of day as a single, we'll either get new verses or a completely different feature than Flo Rida.

Take it for what it's worth, but I doubt this version will ever make it to the masses, so feel free to indulge in what could turn out to be a hidden gem...

These two songs ended up loading back to back on my newest ipod playlist and I realized they had the same verse in both of them....have been wondering the same thing...is it just a filler or do they plan to release both songs with the same line.

Remember last summer when DJ Got Us Falling In Love came out with the Pitbull verse that started " If Erykah Badu can get naked then baby I'm sure that you can..." That verse had been in another song that came out around the same time...I can't think of what it was now but I remember when I noticed that too and thought it was very weird. After I noticed the Hangover/Good Feeling verse sharing I thought maybe it was more common than I'd originally thought.

Yea with a lot of artists recording verses and emailing them to engineers to be cut and pasted into tracks, it's becoming a frequent thing to hear the same verse on two tracks. But I can't hate it gives me something to post about!
