"My House" is a song by American recording artist Flo Rida from his 2015 EP of the same name. The song was released as the album's third official single on October 13, 2015 in the US.[2] The song samples the drum break from "Impeach the President" by The Honey Drippers.[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

"My House" debuted at number 96 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the issue dated November 28, 2015, before falling to 99 on the following week. The song then slowly gained momentum until a sharp increase in attention following Flo Rida's January 14, 2016 performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a halftime performance at an NFL playoff game on January 16, and its appearance as WrestleMania 32's theme song on April 3, jumping places from 23–12 and becoming the track to gain the most digital sales in a week on the chart.[4]

Steep rises in performance continued as the song once again jumped to number five the following week with the issue dated February 9, 2016, becoming Flo Rida's seventh top 5 single in his native United States.[5] The song has been certified quadruple Platinum in the US.[6] The song sold 2,217,000 copies in the United States in 2016, making it the second best-selling song of the year, behind Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!". As of December 2016, it has sold a total of 2,732,000 downloads in the country.[7]

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Alex Acosta and features Flo Rida at a party full of women.[8]

Use in media[edit]

"My House" was used as one of the official theme songs of the WWE professional wrestling event WrestleMania 32.[9] Flo Rida performed a Nickelodeon-themed version of the song as part of the network's promotion of Super Bowl 50.[10] It is also used in a commercial for Northwestern Mutual financial services.

The Scott Brothers released a cover of the song with Eric Paslay on January 12, 2017. The music video was filmed at their home in Las Vegas, Nevada.[52] The proceeds from the sale of the single go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.[53]

While singing along to the original in while driving, Jonathan Scott thought it would make a good country song.[52] Paslay was originally brought on to do a rap cameo, but they liked his voice so much they invited him to sing on the entire song.[52]
