"Club Can't Handle Me" is a song by American rapper Flo Rida featuring French disc jockey David Guetta and Nicole Scherzinger (who is uncredited). It was released as a digital download on iTunes on June 28, 2010 as the lead single of the Step Up 3D soundtrack album and is also included on Flo Rida's third studio album, Only One Flo (Part 1).

The song topped the charts in Ireland, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom, and became a top five hit in Australia, Belgium Flanders, Canada, Finland, Germany, New Zealand and the Netherlands. In the United States, it peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. As of December 2013, the song had sold 3 million copies in the US.[1] The music video was filmed in Los Angeles and was directed by Marc Klasfeld.

Background and composition[edit]

"Club Can't Handle Me" was written by Flo Rida, Carmen Key, Kasia Livingston, Mike Caren, David Guetta, Frédéric Riesterer and Giorgio Tuinfort. Guetta was originally approached by Flo Rida's recording company, which asked whether Guetta would agree to produce songs for the rapper.[2] The DJ, who often played Flo Rida's "Low" alongside "Love Is Gone" (his own collaboration with Chris Willis) when working in clubs, agreed.[2] Flo Rida, who described the song as a "club anthem",[3] said he always looked up to Guetta and that they both appreciated each others' earlier works.[2] "Club Can't Handle Me" first premiered on Flo Rida's official website on June 9, 2010.[4] On June 28, the song became available to download on iTunes.[5] The song promotes the Step Up 3D film, and is the lead single of its soundtrack. The song is Flo Rida's 5th Top 10 hit.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

Nick Levine of Digital Spy gave the song four stars out of five writing, "'Club Can't Handle Me' is a whopping great party banger – perhaps Guetta's straight up funnest [sic] production since 'I Gotta Feeling'. Of course, Flo's lyrics are a parade of insane nonsense, as is the very concept behind the song."[6] A reviewer from Billboard gave the song a positive review, calling the song "infectious", and stating, "Guetta provides an escalating beat – not unlike the one for The Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling" – while Flo Rida delivers the sort of dependable party lyrics that put him on the map."[7]

Live performances[edit]

On July 14, 2010, Flo Rida performed the song during The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.[8] He performed the song on August 2 on The Wendy Williams Show, on August 3 on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and on August 5 on So You Think You Can Dance. The song was also featured in a dance routine to promote Step Up 3D on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on August 13. On September 9, he had performed it live on ASAP XV, a Filipino variety show.

Cover versions[edit]

Alvin and the Chipmunks and The Chipettes covered this song as a bonus track for the Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked: Music from the Motion Picture album. A few lyrics have changed in this version. Kidz Bop covered this song on Kidz Bop 19.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Club Can't Handle Me" was directed by Marc Klasfeld and filmed in Los Angeles.[9] It premiered E! channel's "Daily 10" segment on July 16.[8] On the same day, it was also uploaded on Flo Rida's official YouTube account.[10] The video is taking place during an "opulent, extravagant club party",[2] where Flo Rida raps in front of a crowd, while David Guetta is a DJ.[2] It also features scenes taken from the Step Up 3D film. Flo Rida said of the video: "If you've ever dreamed about having the biggest party of your life, "Club Can't Handle Me" definitely represents that. Lotta energy. Lot of diamonds, ice sculptures. Just showing that boss vibe."[2]
