Why we underestimated him: We were 100% sure he was going to be a one-hit wonder.
When he proved us wrong: When he continued to put out hit after hit.
Pop quiz: Name a Flo Rida album. Does Mail on Sunday or Only One Flo ring a bell? Eh, not likely. But Flo Rida—who had one-hit wonder written all over him after "Low" went 7-times platinum—has been able to put out a strong of hit singles since 2007, and 11 of them have earned platinum distinction from the RIAA.
We're not going to sit here and tell you that we love every one of them or that we're huge Flo Rida fans (if anything, it pains us to call him a "rapper"). But you have to respect what this guy has been able to do. Plus, we don't see him stopping anytime soon.
