Flo Rida says he's "about 85 percent" done with his third album, "The Only One," a two-disc set that is due out before the end of the year and will, he tells Billboard.com, give fans a broad look at his skills.
"The first disc will be called 'The Only One: Flo,' and the second one's 'The Only One: Rida," the Florida MC (real name: Tramar Dillard) reveals. "It plays into the whole name thing, but 'The Only One: Flo' means there's only one Flo as far as my melodic style. 'The Only One: Rida' is the fact that I can ride a beat and definitely be able to slow down and speed up my rhyme pattern and everything like that. So the 'Rida' will be a little more edgy versus the 'Flo.' "
"The Only One" is already off to a good start thanks to the single "Club Can't Handle Me," a collaboration with French DJ David Guetta that was plucked for the "Step Up 3D" film soundtrack and is not only climbing the Hot 100 but has also topped charts in the U.K. and Ireland. "It was supposed to be one of the records on the album," Flo Rida explains, "but Disney has a great relationship with me. I opened the vaults to my music and let them hear the record, and they thought it would fit well with their movie and everything. It was a great start because I wasn't even complete with my album."
