G-Dragon is back and is ready to take the world by storm. Newly teamed up with American Billboard chart-topping artist, Flo Rida, they have breathed fire into a new special edition of Heart breaker, which is included on the new Shine The Light Live Album.
Back in 2008, Flo Rida was first called for his venture in the Korean market and it would also be BoA’s first venture into the American market. All didn’t go too well with the collaboration, as the track’s separate recordings did not mesh well. Another monkey in the wrench was thrown into G-Dragon’s original Heart Breaker, which was accused of blatant plagiarism. However, that was only an illusion because Flo Rida and G-Dragon was planned as a collaboration all along.
I believe that G-Dragon’s voice blends much better with Flo Rida’s voice, in fact I think it’s a perfect match. I’m sorry that it didn’t work out with BoA and I hope she finds another American artist that would be a more suitable match for her. However, I’m very glad that Flo Rida didn’t give up in the Korean market.
The live album contains the new studio version of Heartbreaker featuring Flo Rida and some other remixes. Needless to say, it’s a must buy.

Oh, wanted to hear the song, right?
And what does the majority of the crowd say to this collaboration? By the looks of the chart, they would agree it’s pretty sweet.
Two big thumbs up for G-Dragon and Flo Rida!
