"It's Not Hard to See, the Girl is Mine"

Whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute, hol up! When did Flo Rida start dabbling in deep house grooves? Between he and Pitbull, I never know what to expect beyond delivering a beat that's going to make me want to dance. It just so happens that Flo's latest dance escapade sampled everyone's favorite duet back in 1998 between Brandy and Monica. Check the original video for reference...

There's a simplicity in the instrumental of Girl's Mine that's downright addicting. Similar to trance, the rhythms are so bouncy and delicious that you don't even pay attention to the lyrics. Sure the sample is a bit forced, but who cares, I just want to dance to this song. Maybe I'm a sucker for uptempo pop, but after a drink or two at the club you'd be shopping your new dance move to this beat...#DontLie

Update: Ah, so you know that initial surprised reaction about Flo Rida going all deep house? Yea, that might have been too good to be true. This isn't the first or last time Flo may have overstepped his bounds by riding the momentum of a hot new dance track. Below you can check out the original version of The Girl is Mine by 99 Souls. Gotta give credit where credit is due because there isn't much original about Flo Rida's version when you compare it to the original.
