Song of the Day #2,512: ‘G.D.F.R.’ – Flo Rida feat. Sage The Gemini & Lookas

gdfrIn the 13th spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 this week is this collection of random letters: ‘G.D.F.R.’ by Flo Rida, featuring Sage the Gemini and Lookas.

The title, based on the illuminating lyrics below, stands for “going down for real.” Sage the Gemini and Flo Rida trade verses, but I see no mention of Lookas, not do I know what a Lookas is.

Indeed, Lookas appears to be the one working musical artist without a Wikipedia entry. I did find a Soundcloud page full of tracks he remixed, and apparently one of his remixed samples appears on this song, hence the credit.

Flo Rida is, of course, a Miami guy and it’s nice to see the Heat’s Udonis Haslem in this basketball-themed video. It’s not as nice to see the women twerking while the men play ball, but at the end it appears the ladies take to the court and perhaps win the game. The narrative isn’t entirely clear.

Catchy enough song, though. I credit Lookas.

[Hook: Sage the Gemini]
I know what you came here to see
If you’re a freak, then ya coming home with me
And I know what you came here to do
Now bust it open let me see you get loose
It’s going down for real (x3)

[Verse 1: Flo Rida]
Your girl just kissed a girl
I do bi chicks
Shake for a sheik
I’m throwing these Emirates in the sky
Spending this As-salamu alaykum
Peace to M.O.N.E.Y
I love my beaches, south beaches
Surfboard in high tide
I could just roll up cause I’m swoll up
So that birthday cake get the cobra
Bugatti for real, I’m cold bruh
That auto-biography rover
Got the key to my city it’s over
It’s no thots, only Anna Kournikova’s
I set records, ratchets hold up
(I set records, ratchets hold up)

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Sage the Gemini]
And they already know me
It’s going down further than femurs
Girls get wetter than Katrina
Yeah my girl you never seen her
Cause my tints by limousines
My touch say it’s the Midas
We the plus your man a minus
My team blowing on that slam
Make you cough-cough that’s Bronchitis
Put your hands up
It’s a stick up, no more makeup
Get that ass on the floor
Ladies put your lipstick up
Double entendre, double entendre
While you’re hating I get money
Then I double up tonkers

[Hook]

[Bridge: Flo Rida]
Lift it, drop it, shake it, pop it
Lift it, drop it, shake it, pop it
Lift it, drop it, shake it, pop it
Lift it, drop it, shake it

[Outro: Sage the Gemini]
It’s going down for real
It’s going down for real
It’s going down for real
It’s going down for real
It’s going down for real

    Lookas is amazing! I own his entire discography. Can’t believe you haven’t heard of him.

    Meanwhile, I’m not really a Flo Rida fan and even the incredible Lookas doesn’t save this song for me. I really find that horn (kazoo?) sample annoying as hell. Next!
