25 Songs That Should Have Blown Up in 2012

Waka Flocka Flame f/ Nicki Minaj, Tyga & Flo Rida "Get Low"



Many consider Waka Flocka's debut a classic album. Because of that, expectations for his follow-up were exceedingly high. After mainstream success with previous singles, and knowing that the pressure was on to deliver bankable new ones, Flocka went for the gusto, most notably on feature-heavy, pop-pandering effort "Get Low." "O Let's Do It" and "Hard In Da Paint" were street records that caught on with a mass audience, and as far as the average listener was concerned, Flocka was out of his lane aiming directly for that crowd. It's unfortunate, though, because "Get Low" is actually a pretty enoyable pop record. If any of the guests--Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Flo Rida--were the top-billed artist, the track probably would have found much more success.
