80's Sampling

It amazes me how we as consumers are loving this whole 80's music sampling found in some of our favourite songs in the 'noughties' such as Rihanna's 'Don't Stop The Music', which samples MJ's 'Wanna Be Starting Something' and more recently Flo Rida's international #1 record, 'Right Round', which samples Dead or Alive's, 'You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)'.

Let's just look at the statistics for Flo Rida's 'Right Round':

  • He breaks his very own record for one-week-digital sales record, previously held by his single 'Low'

  • He also breaks the record for biggest ever first week sales

  • The single has been #1 both over here in the UK and Stateside

Impressive huh?

Flo Rida's sophmore album, R.O.O.T.S, in stores March 31st worldwide!

I wonder who'll be the next person to sample another 80's joint and have a huge hit?
