In The Ayer

Album: Mail on Sunday (2008)
Charted: 29 9

Songfacts®:

  • This features and was produced by Will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas.
  • The Mexican and Puerto Rican singer Tiffany Villarreal provides the background vocals on this track.
  • The song's backdrop and beat are sampled from Pretty Tony's freestyle/electro track "Jam the Box," from his 1984 album Fix it in the Mix. Ciara sampled the same track on "That's Right" from her 2006 Ciara: The Evolution album.
  • Shane Drake (Paramore, Kelly Clarkson) directed the music video, which finds Flo Rida seemingly about to rob a bank, but he's really just looking to party in the bank vault with Will.i.am and a group of dancers. The 14-hour shoot took place at a real bank in downtown Los Angeles, the same bank Queen Latifah and her crew robbed in the 1996 movie Set It Off.
