"Flip Reverse" is a song by ten-piece hip-hop group Blazin' Squad, released as the second single from their second studio album, Now or Never.


Although, initially against releasing the song as a single, East West released "Flip Reverse" as the second single from Now or Never on 3 November 2003. It became the group's last single to be released on the discontinued cassette format. Released a week prior to Now or Never, the single peaked at #2 on the UK Singles Chart on the week of release. The radio edit of "Flip Reverse" cuts around twenty seconds of instrumental music from the intersection of the song.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Flip Reverse" premiered in September 2003, at a total length of two minutes and fifty-six seconds.[1] The video focuses on the group performing the song in a crowded club, surrounded by a group of girls. The video also shows scenes of members of the band break dancing, and leaving the club with a gaggle of girls following behind. As of 2012, "Flip Reverse" has become the group's most-played video on UK music channels, receiving nearly twice as many plays as "Crossroads", the group's only number-one single.
