Flo Rida has the #1 Song in the Country


Go figure.

But you gotta give credit where its due and as of today, Miami's own Flo Rida has bumped Alicia Keys out of the number one spot on the Billboard charts and his song, "Low" has ascended in its place. It's a proud day for South Florida music fans and it's the second time this year (that I can calculate anyway) that a local has held this position. Sean Kingston's "Beautiful Girls" was at #1 for four weeks earlier this summer. "Low" is a catchy enough tune that he might be able to beat Kingston's streak. Even though the song is probably old to most people, "Low" is finally catching on in other parts of the country so props to Flo Rida for putting Miami on top of the charts again.
