#NewMusicMonday - #Video Flo Rida Club Can't Handle Me (Step Up 3D)

Flo Rida - Club Can't Handle Me ft. David Guetta [Official Music Video] - Step Up 3D

For more information, including tracklisting, on the Step Up 3D soundtrack, read Step Up 3D soundtrack tracklist – Flo-Rida announced as lead single on AllStreetDance

Atlantic Records are set to release Step Up 3D - Original Motion Soundtrack on July 26, the musical companion to upcoming Touchstone Pictures/Summit Entertainment dance film, which opens in cinemas across the UK on August 6. The soundtrack precedes the lead single Club Can’t Handle Me by Flo Rida (featuring David Guetta), released on August 2.

Step Up 3D is the third in the series of the prestigious dance phenomenon; the coming-of-age feel-good dance romance is set to take this summer by storm. The film stars Harry Shum Jr., Adam Sevani, Ally Maki, Sharni Vinson and Kylie Goldstein and is directed by the award-winning Jon M. Chu. With Step Up’s prior soundtracks (released in 2006 and 2008) now approaching cumulative sales of one million copies, the fresh release stars Estelle, Trey Songz, Flo Rida and many more hot talents in the urban sphere, embodying the fantastic line-up of the film’s previous releases.

Following on from his previous chart success, Grammy nominated Flo Rida has produced a sure-fire hit with Club Can’t Handle Me. Produced by the infamous David Guetta (Britney Spears, Akon, Madonna), the track is currently enjoying support from the likes of Choice, Galaxy, Capital and Kiss FM. 2008 saw the release of the rapper’s #1 4xRIAA platinum-certified dancefloor smash ‘Low (Featuring T-Pain)’ which stayed in the UK charts for over a year! Flo’s 2009’s single Right Round (sample of Dead or Alive’s 1984 single You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)) also debuted at #1 in the UK’s official single charts. Across the pond, the track became the US’ fastest million-selling digital track in history.

B-Boy Championships 2010 photoshoot

The artwork for the UK B-Boy Championships is being made - and so is a little bit of breaking history! And it's going to look as cool as the pre-visualisation artwork below, if not better. (Read the news story on AllStreetDance)

15 years of the B-Boy Championships and the creative they're putting behind it for its anniversary is surpassing past years.

Yesterday was a ten-hour day (not for me, as I turned up intentionally late) to get the promo for the championships ready. Everybody was in the house, from Soul Mavericks (national champions) to Plague (who had to jet off to Blackpool to rehearse for their show, MJ Timeless), La Familia, with members of Ruthless and Wet Wipez spotted around for additional faces in crowd shots.

The theme of this year's posters isn't just battles, it's all out war! Inspired by classical war paintings, the posters will be packed with action with hundreds of battles taking place.

At the start of the day shots were taken of four main 'hero' dancers in various poses, before additional 'layers' were added to the composition. Adding the layers meant that hundreds of photos had to be taken at different distances and angles from the cameras on what looked like a gaffer taped spider's web on the studio floor. It also meant a few costume changes to appear as different people in other shots.

What had to be done next was a lot of shouting and overreacting to cyphers until the photographers until they were happy with their shot. Here's the cool bit - as I was standing around I was asked if I wanted to be part of it! Somewhere in the background of the new posters you're going to see me overreacting and pulling a silly face at a dancer! To be a background face, even if it's the back of my head, in an anniversary poster for the B-Boy Championships - I'm honoured!

It's going to take around a week to make the poster artwork look perfect, although the graphic designers worked on early versions of the poster, live in the studio.
To give you an idea, the final poster is going to look something like the photo below:

Expect to see more 'making of' footage and photos as soon as we receive them...
