New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Atlantic Records) Fresh off a show-stopping performance on last night's season finale of NBC's The Voice, IMG/Poe Boy/Atlantic recording artist Flo Rida has unveiled details of his highly anticipated new album, "WILD ONES." Highlighted by his worldwide hits "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones (Feat. Sia)," not to mention the superstar's newest single "Whistle," "WILD ONES" arrives in stores and online July 3rd.

In addition to Flo Rida's performance of "Whistle" and "Wild Ones" on last night's The Voice, the Miami-based rapper will celebrate the release of "WILD ONES" with a number of high profile TV performances, including a headlining installment of the "Toyota Concert Series" on NBC's TODAY, slated to air live from New York City's Rockefeller Plaza on Friday, July 6th. The schedule follows Flo Rida's recent performances on, among others, NBC's post-Super Bowl XLVI episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Cartoon Network's Hall of Game Awards, and WWE's blockbuster WrestleMania XXVIII (in which the rapper introduced The Rock's long-awaited return to the ring with a live medley of "Good Feeling" and "Wild Ones"). As if all that weren't enough, a recent installment of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew dedicated to Flo's chart-topping hits was highlighted by a stellar live performance from the man himself.

With total digital sales just shy of 2 million in the U.S. alone and 4 million worldwide, "Wild Ones (Feat. Sia)" marks Flo Rida's sixth consecutive RIAA platinum certified single. The track climbs to #2 this week at Top 40 radio outlets nationwide, while also remaining a Top 5 hit at CHR/Rhythmic outlets. The "Wild Ones" companion video is also a sensation, drawing more than 52 million individual views at Flo's official YouTube channel, In addition, Flo Rida's newest single "Whistle" is already a #1 hit in Australia and New Zealand.

Meanwhile, "Good Feeling" has proven one of Flo Rida's biggest hits to date, earning 3x RIAA platinum certification since its initial release with worldwide digital sales at 5 million. In addition to topping the airplay rankings at CHR/Top 40 radio outlets across America, the single reached the top 3 on Billboard's "Hot 100" - Flo's seventh top 10 and fourth top 5 hit on the all-encompassing chart. "Good Feeling" has also received a Billboard Music Award nomination for "Top Rap Song." What's more, the "Good Feeling" companion video - directed, like "Wild Ones," by acclaimed filmmaker Erik White - has been a YouTube smash, with total views now over 87 million at

Finally, "Good Feeling" has been an international phenomenon, with top 10 successes in 16 countries (including Australia, where the track has received 4x ARIA platinum certification). The track -- produced by Dr. Luke and Cirkut -- recently received a pair of prestigious International Dance Music Awards nominations, for "Best R&B/Urban Dance Track" and "Best Rap/Hip Hop Dance Track."

Flo Rida is without question one of today's most vibrant and recognizable superstars, a true international icon and history-making hip-hop hero. The Miami-based rapper burst onto the scene in 2007 with his record-breaking #1 hit, "Low (Feat. T-Pain)," which spent 10 consecutive weeks atop the Billboard "Hot 100."

The single proved equally successful around the globe, reaching #1 in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.

In addition to guest appearances on such tracks as David Guetta's "Where Them Girls At (Feat. Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj)," the iconic rapper has made non-stop worldwide noise with an array of his own international party anthems, including "In The Ayer (Feat.," "Club Can't Handle Me (Feat.
