Look, here is a thing by David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Flo-Rida - watch the premiere now

Boobs, brains and....Flo-Rida.
There are times when a headline is wholly inadequate to sum up an entire post.

This is not one of those times.  For here, indeed, is a thing by David Guetta, Nicki Minaj and Flo-Rida.

It is not a bad thing.  It is also not a great thing.  It is, however, a decently adequate thing.  And that is...ok.

The song is a pretty by-the-numbers Guetta affair (as a side note, he is increasingly in danger of having such a notable sound that we will soon be able to say "it's very 'Guetta' " and everyone will just KNOW, much in the way something could once be "very Fatboy Slim," or more recently "very RedOne") which is to say it's your standard well-executed-but-ultimately-average dance track with some impressive guest vocals.  And also Flo-Rida. :(

In keeping with the theme of "alright," the video is your run of the mill THINGS HAPPENING IN LA WITH A CAMERA FILTER ON THEM clip, with a little CGI thrown in because it's a dance video and people who like dance music enjoy that sort of thing.

So no it's not going to set the world aflame, but what we do have here is a solid addition to any playlist and a quite serviceable video for "the clubs."  And we should all quit our bitching and be thankful for that, because THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS DYING* and in this day and age it's a wonder that we get anything at all.
