Song of the Day #2,797: ‘My House’ – Flo Rida

flo_ridaI’ve come to dread these Billboard countdown weeks because they tend to erode my faith in the musical taste of the masses.

But this week so far has been an exception. Rihanna’s new single isn’t one of her best, but it’s far from offensive. The two Justin Bieber tracks are surprisingly effective, and twenty one pilots’ ‘Stressed Out’ works well as a modern blend of hip hop and pop.

Will Flo Rida keep the streak alive with ‘My House,’ Billboard #5 track of the week?

The answer is yes. This is a very listenable track, one I am sure will play in basketball stadiums all over the country for years to come.

[Intro]
Open up the champagne, pop!
It’s my house, come on, turn it up

[Verse 1]
Hear a knock on the door and the night begins
Cause we done this before so you come on in
Make yourself at my home, tell me where you been
Pour yourself something cold, baby, cheers to this

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes you gotta stay in
And you know where I live
Yeah, you know what we is
Sometimes you gotta stay in, in

[Chorus]
Welcome to my house
Baby take control now
We can’t even slow down
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Play that music too loud
Show me what you do now
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Welcome to my house

[Verse 2]
Morning comes and you know that you wanna stay
Close the blinds, let’s pretend that the time has changed
Keep our clothes on the floor, open up champagne
Let’s continue tonight, come on, celebrate

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes you gotta stay in
And you know where I live
Yeah, you know what we is
Sometimes you gotta stay in, in

[Chorus]
Welcome to my house
Baby take control now
We can’t even slow down
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Play that music too loud
Show me what you do now
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Welcome to my house

[Verse 3]
Welcome to my duck off the crib, the spot, the pad
But my house is your house if you throwin’ it back
Excuse me if my home bringing the sad
Soon as these happy faces land you can run with the cash
Homerun, slam dunk, touchdown, pass
Mi casa es tu casa so it ain’t no holding back
Another shot of vodka, you know what’s in my glass
It’s my house, just relax

[Chorus]
Welcome to my house
Baby take control now
We can’t even slow down
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Play that music too loud
Show me what you do now
We don’t have to go out
Welcome to my house
Welcome to my house
Welcome to my house
It’s my house

    I’ve heard this a few times on the radio. I have to admit it really doesn’t do much for me, though I see what you mean about the basketball arenas.

    I’m a big fan of this song, and we heard a man in Disney bring new life to it by playing along with a saxophone. It’s a fun one.
