His family know him as Tramar Lacel Dillard. But to his millions of fans he is music icon Flo Rida. And now, with the hype and buzz building around San Marino’s Eurovision 2021 entry, fans are hoping Monsieur Rida will catch at ride to Rotterdam to tear up the stage with Senhit.
Big question marks still hang over whether the “Club Can’t Handle Me” hitmaker will be able to travel to the contest to appear in the “Adrenalina” stage show. After all, we are in a global pandemic. But in a recent interview with the BBC, Flo made it clear that he wants to be there.
“It would be an honour to perform with her,” he said. “I would love to go. You know there’s nothing like being embraced for your passion. I love performing.”
Senhit made it clear he is trying to make it work. “He tried to fix [the situation],” she said. “He tried to do his best, and then, yeah, we try and we are in contact almost every day with the team and try to understand if it’s possible or not, but we push so hard to have Flo Rida on stage.”
So did Flo Rida know about Eurovision before coming into contact with the Italian star?
“I had no idea about it,” he said. “I definitely didn’t. Her people reached out to my people. Right now I’m working on my album and everything and I was in album mode and I was like, ‘I have some free time.’ So I got a chance to listen to the record and I was like, ‘Woah, it’s very high energy like what I love.'”
The rapper also admitted that he doesn’t know too much about the Most Serene Republic, which has a population of around 34,000 and is known among Eurofans for stars like Valentina Monetta.
“There’s a lot that I need to know but I know one thing — I have a lot of fans in San Marino and I definitely appreciate the love,” adding, “I’m definitely loving the fans.”
