  • This My House track finds Flo Rida singing about his childhood in the Sunshine State and past loves. "This record is very heartfelt but at the same time, me growing up from the projects, I thought this was a record that could definitely represent something more real," the rapper told ET Online.

    "This being My House, I thought it would bring the fans into something that represented everything that goes into my house," he added. "There's a party in my house, there's real conversations in my house... it's just a branch off of that."
  • The video was filmed at the 2015 Miami Martin Luther King, Jr. Day parade in Miami, at which Flo Rida served as the grand marshal. It features the rapper walking in the parade wearing an MLK T-shirt. "It was amazing," he said. "I'm getting goosebumps just thinkin' about it now because it was nothing but love out there."

    "It kinda reminds me of the movie Selma, when Martin Luther King was taking a walk," Flo Rida added. "I was actually walkin' down the street and I had my colleagues with me and we were just spreading the positive message, which is love."
