"This Is How We Roll" is a song recorded by American country music duo Florida Georgia Line as a duet with fellow country singer Luke Bryan. It is the fifth single from Florida Georgia Line's album Here's to the Good Times, although it is only included on the 2013 This Is How We Roll rerelease. Cole Swindell assisted the artists in writing the song. A remix featuring Jason Derulo and Bryan was released on June 6, 2014.

Critical reception[edit]

In a review of the album's rerelease, Matt Bjorke of Roughstock wrote that it is a "song which is definitely well within the musical pocket each of the song’s writers have in their music and an obvious choice for single at some point. It’s another sing-a-long, small town love type of song but does that matter at this point, it’s a song that’s all about feeling good with people you love to be with."[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld and premiered in March 2014.[3]
