Latto – Put It On Da Floor

By allenpetersonreviews Jan3,2024

While Latto made some good-faith attempts to follow up the 2022 breakout success of her “Big Energy” with another dancefloor-courting, radio-friendly Big Pop song, none were as satisfying as the bare-knuckled aggro verve of “Put It on the Floor.” With some of the most quotable bars (“Rip me out the plastic/ I been actin’ brand new”) and the catchiest (and most confrontational) rap hook since “Tomorrow 2,” it was an inspired move for Latto to enlist that song’s special guest, Cardi B, for her own original-worthy sequel (the aptly titled “Put It on the Floor Again”). And wouldn’t you know it? She ended up with the crossover hit anyway, as the Cardi remix propelled “Floor” to No. 13 on the Hot 100. — A.U.
