Flo Rida not commercially motivated

Flo Rida isn't worried about sales figures of his tracks, as long as he can connect with his fans.

Flo Rida isn't worried about his sales figures.

The US rapper has had huge success with his singles, including 'Low' - which was named the seventh most downloaded song of all time on iTunes in February this year - and 'Right Round', which reached number one in the UK and US single charts, but said commercial success isn't what he strives for.

He said: "You're trying to sell records, sell singles - do it all. But I'm not too fond of even just worrying about that.

"The most important thing is just, you know, connecting with the fans on a worldwide basis because a lot of times you'll see numbers and that doesn't play a part in the whole worldwide numbers."

Flo has also recently embraced a new sound, working with DJ and producer David Guetta on 'Club Can't Handle Me' to produce a dance music influenced hip hop hit, and Flo explained he had been very keen to fit his words to the DJs dance-pop style for a long time.

He told the Los Angeles Times: "I'd seen David's following and really wanted to work in his universe, in the European club scene. Tight, melodic raps really fit with that style."

Flo added his next album, 'Only One Flo (Part 2)' will have a more traditional hip hop sound and will be released "in the next couple of months".
