  • Flo Rida shares his thoughts on Etta James.

    'Her passing away really touched me,' says Miami rapper who sampled her on 'Good Feeling'

    Over the last 50 years, with 1960's "My Dearest Darling," her signature 1961 ballad "At Last” and later her 1978 Jerry Wexler-produced comeback album Deep in the Night, Etta James – the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inducted singer, who died of complications related to leukemia last week at age 73 – remained a signature staple of music's great conversation.

    And while the music world mourns the major loss that James' passing signifies, her legacy lives on in a rather unlikely locale – the current Billboard Hot 100 chart: James' vocal intro to 1962's "Something's Got a Hold on Me" provides the ear-catching hook to rapper Flo Rida's chart-topping club jam "Good Feeling.” It also lays the groundwork for electronic dance music producer Avicii's smash hit "Levels."

    To that end, the iconic singer has garnered a new generation of fans - although some may not necessarily know who they're listening to at first. "[Fans are] very surprised," says Flo Rida, speaking to people's wonderment when learning who provides the smoky vocal hook on his hit single. "But I bring it to their attention [that's it Etta James] immediately."

    Primarily known for his four-on-the-floor party-rap bangers, the 32-year-old rapper, born Tramar Dillard, surprisingly grew up quite fond of the late singer; he says that his multi-instrumentalist father was "very fond of Etta James"
