Can't Believe It

Album: The Perfect 10 (2013)
  • The lead single from The Perfect 10 finds Flo Rida teaming up with Cuban-American rapper Pitbull. The song, which is dedicated to their love of the female posterior, was released on July 30, 2013.
  • The accompanying music video was directed by Geremy & Georgie Legs and sees an assortment of women shaking their behinds. The clip shares striking similarities with the visuals for both Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt" and Diplo's solo track "Butter's Theme." Diplo, who as leader of Major Lazer, was responsible for both tracks expressed his ire on Twitter. "I'll totally fight Flo-rida in a street fight and totally get my ass whooped," he said. "But I'll fight him anyway cuz I'll fight for what I believe in."

    Speaking on MTV's RapFix Live, Flo Rida denied that he was ripping off Diplo explaining that the clip is a homage to some older booty-masters. "[The] only thing stands out in that is the fact that I thank God I can afford a mansion," he laughed. "I haven't even seen the ['Butter's Theme'] video, but shout out to Sir Mix-A-Lot, 2 Live Crew who definitely inspired my video."
