Sugar (The Remixes)
Flo Rida feat. Sugar
Candy is bad for you. This is something we’ve been told by parents, dentists and fashion advertising for years, but despite that, or maybe because of it, we love it. Flo Rida is kind of a hack, having gone from hard and thuggish on the monster urban hit “Low” to goofy dance rap with “Right Round” (sampling Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”). But no matter what our better judgement tells us, ear candy is still delicious, and the equally goofy “Sugar,” featuring a completely random usage of the scatted hook from Eiffel 65’s “Blue (Da Ba Dee), ” is too fun to condemn. Completed by its offering as a remix package, the song is all but nauseatingly commercial and the true definition of a guilty pleasure, including nicely executed treatments by Mondotek and Disco Fries, and a horrifying NRG mix by Mickey Modelle.
