Flo Rida, whose single “Right Round” is currently number one on the Hot 100 Billboard list, will be hosting his new album release party Wednesday at the Verizon Wireless Communications store across the street from Fayette Mall.

Flo Rida will be playing songs off his album, “R.O.O.T.S.,” which stands for “Routes of Overcoming the Struggle,” starting at 12:30 p.m.

The first 104 people in line will meet the rapper, according to radio station 104.5 The Cat’s Web site. Puccini’s Smiling Teeth will also provide pizza for the album release party.
