Flo Rida - Wild Ones (feat. Sia)

[Chorus: Sia]
Hey, I heard you are a wild one
Ooh-ooh
If I took you home, it'd be a home run
Show me how you do
I wanna shut down the club
With you
Hey, I heard you like the wild ones (Wild ones, wild ones)
Ooh-ooh

[Verse 1: Flo Rida]
I like crazy, foolish, stupid
Party going wild, fist pumping music
I might lose it
Glass to the roof
That's how we does it, does it, does it
I don't care tonight
She don't care we like
Almost there, the right vibe
Ready to get live
Ain't no surprise
Take me so high
Jump and nose dive
Surfing the crowd
Ooh-ooh
Said I gotta be the man
I'm the head of my band
Mic check one two-oooh
Shut 'em down in the club while the playboy does
And they all get loose, loose
After bottle, we all get bent then again tomorrow
Gotta break loose 'cause that's the motto
Club shut down: a hundred super models

"Wild Ones" is a song by American rapper Flo Rida from his fourth studio album of the same name. The song features vocals by Australian recording artist Sia. It was produced by soFLY & Nius and Axwell, whilst the lyrical content was written by Rida, soFLY & Nius, Sia, Axwell, Jacob Luttrell, Marcus Cooper and Niklaas Vogel-Kern. The engineering and recording of the record was handled by Skylar Mones. Lyrically, the song contracts themes including partying, love and dancing while the musical composition is an uptempo dance-pop song that is influenced by house music and electro house. It was released as the album's second single and title track on December 19, 2011, in the United States. The single peaked at number one in Australia, Canada, Honduras, New Zealand, and Norway, whilst it peaked inside the top forty in every country chart it charted on. It charted at number five on the US Billboard Hot 100. The music video was released, featuring Flo Rida having fun with his friends. Sia, however, was not featured in the final video. This song along with "Good Feeling" was selected to serve as one of the official theme songs to WrestleMania XXVIII and it was also featured in The Rock's Road to Wrestlemania vignettes where he prepares for his match with John Cena at the event. Flo Rida performed the songs "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones" live at the event to precede Rock's entrance for the match. With over 6.5 million copies sold globally, it is Flo Rida's fourth best selling and one of the top 250 best-selling singles. The "Titanium" project got Sia into Guetta's powerful inner circle, including Atlantic Records director of A&R Ben Maddahi, who then introduced Sia to Flo Rida and his team, yielding "Wild Ones". The song serves as the second official single from Flo Rida's album of the same name. The song features vocals by Australian recording artist Sia. It was produced by soFLY & Nius and Axwell, whilst the lyrical content was written by Rida, soFLY & Nius, Sia, Axwell, Jacob Luttrell, Marcus Cooper and Benjamin Maddahi. Sia wrote the song in 15 minutes. She later said: "They asked me to record ["Wild Ones"] over and over for almost six months. Eventually I said, 'OK, but don't put my name on it.' I was angry because we had already had this discussion. Jonathan said to me, 'I don't think I really believed you that you didn't want to be credited or get the recognition you deserve.'" The song's chorus was written by Furler and was intended to feature Katy Perry. However, Perry never received the song. Billboard described Sia's voice as a "bell-clear, campfire-warm voice [that] has mostly been applied to her own elegantly quirky creations". DJBooth.com compared the song to "Good Feeling", stating that it is a "slightly more subdued, but equally dancefloor/radio-ready follow-up". Tim Byron from The Vine stated, "When [Sia] sings the chorus, phrases like 'I heard' and 'if I took you home' speak of uncertainty. She likes the idea of wildness, but isn't certain how it will go. Flo Rida's role in the song is to convince her that she actually does want to be a wild one, to convince her that it is okay to let go, to obliterate herself." The song was nominated to the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. Flo Rida performed the song on the finale of second season of The Voice with contestant Juliet Simms singing the chorus. He also performed the song with Carly Rae Jepsen at the 2012 MuchMusic Video Awards, with Stayc Reigns at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards and the 2012 Premios Juventud, with Bebe Rexha at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards, and at WrestleMania XXVIII prior to The Rock's entrance for his "Once in a Lifetime" match against John Cena. He performed a mash-up of this song along with two more of his famous songs on July 21, 2014, on WWE RAW MIAMI. It also appeared in the trailer of Kung Fu Panda 3.
