This critic predicted it was all downhill for Flo Rida after his 2007 debut single, "Low," went No. 1. Consider my words eaten. The Florida rapper made the summit again with "Right Round," the first single from his second album, which riffs on Dead or Alive's 1985 hit "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)." Elsewhere on R.O.O.T.S. (which stands for "Route of Overcoming the Struggle") he lays fresh beats on Tina Turner, the S.O.S. Band and Eiffel 65. But he doesn't swipe from anyone to get the party percolating on the Nelly Furtado-assisted highlight "Jump."
