Songfacts®:

  • This the first official single from American rapper Flo Rida's third album, Only 1 Flo (PT. 1). The song is a collaboration with "I Gotta Feeling" producer David Guetta. Flo told MTV News: "David Guetta has been a guy who I look up to. He's definitely been big around the world and has always been there to let me know that my music is hot, and vice versa. So I definitely appreciate doing this big record with him."
  • Guetta recalled to MTV News how the collaboration came about: "I was always playing a bootleg with 'Love is Gone' and 'Low,' from him," Guetta recalled. "One day, his record company called me and asked me if I would produce records for him. I was like, 'Yeah! Of course! Because I knew it was working in every club I was playing already."
  • The song also features on the soundtrack of the Disney movie Step Up 3-D.
  • The song's music video is set in an opulent, extravagant club party. "This video right here is just, if you've ever dreamed about having the biggest party of your life, 'Club Can't Handle Me' definitely represents that," Flo Rida told MTV News. "Lotta energy. Lot of diamonds, ice sculptures. Just showing that boss vibe. So I mean really, the club can't handle me."
  • This was Flo Rida's second UK #1 following his debut trip to the summit, "Right Round." He was also a featured artist on Alexandra Burke's chart-topper "Bad Boys."
  • Flo Rida told Billboard magazine the song was inspired by "just traveling around the world," which included some shows with Guetta. "Every time we did a show together it was like we were the life of the party," he recalled, "so we were talking about definitely hooking up and doing a record together. [Guetta] sent me the production and I created my own lyrics, and that's how we made the track."
