Flo Rida sure has a way with words. On one hand, the Miami spitter crafts catchy tunes that appeal to the masses, but Flo is also a master of the double entendre, masking some pretty suggestive lyrics with a candy-pop coating. His latest single, “Whistle,” is a perfect example.
“Can you blow my whistle baby, whistle baby? Let me know,” Flo croons on the hook before he instructs his lady to put her lips together and “come real close.”
“It’s definitely for referees,” Flo Rida joked when he visited earlier in May.
“Well, put your own swing on it, but for the most part I keep it clean, but if you listen to it, you can take it another way as well,” he finally admitted about his infectious pop single
“Whistle” isn’t the first time Flo employed such dual meanings. On his 2009 #1 Billboard Hot 100 single “Right Round” he didn’t leave much to the imagination, singing, “You spin my head right round, when you go down” on the chorus.
It’s a playful formula that has paid huge dividends for the rapper, but how does he know where to draw the line between sexually suggestive and downright dirty? Well, he gets a little help. “I’m not the only one in the studio a lot of times, so I have my boys in there and they’ll tell me and give me their suggestions and what they think,” he explained. “If it’s too much I’ll go back.”
So has Flo ever crossed that line? “Yeah, definitely [on] records that you won’t hear,” he confirmed. “But for the most part I go into the studio with it all planned out.”
