"This Is How We Roll" is a song recorded by American bro-country duo Florida Georgia Line with fellow country singer Luke Bryan. It is the fifth single from Florida Georgia Line's debut studio 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."[1] Website Taste of Country also reviewed the song favorably, saying that "‘Get Your Shine On,’ ‘Round Here’ and ‘Stay’ have found success on country radio, but this track from the group’s deluxe edition of ‘Here’s to the Good Times’ is their best moment since ‘Cruise.’ They can get away with the rapping now, and having the stamp of approval from country’s reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year certainly won’t hurt."[2]

Music video[edit]

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

The song first entered the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 75, and at No. 18 on the Hot Country Songs and sold 52,000 digital copies for the week when the deluxe version of the album, Here's To The Good Times...This Is How We Roll, was released in November 25, 2013.[4][5] It reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs for the chart of March 28, 2014 and stayed at No. 1 for four weeks.[6] It also peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 15 for the chart of April 26, 2014. After it was released to radio, the song received significant airplay to enter the Country Airplay chart at No. 25 for the chart dated March 1, 2014.
