Ass on the Floor (2011)

Type :    

  Summary  

"Ass on the Floor" (clean version: "A** on the Floor") is a song performed by Diddy and his band Dirty Money, lifted from their debut album, Last Train to Paris. It will be released as the third UK single taken from the album on 18 April, 2011. "Ass on the Floor" was produced and co-written by Beatz, as well as Diddy-Dirty Money and Leroy Watson. Incorporating pounding drums and shimmering synthesizers, "Ass on the Floor" was praised by critics as one of the best songs on Last Train to Paris.

Most felt that the song had the potential to be heard in clubs around the world. An accompanying music video, filmed by Colin Tilley, has a cold icy theme and features the female members of Dirty Money taking the lead as the group poses for the camera across the winter wonderland-themed landscape. "Ass on the Floor" made its chart debut on the U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at number eighty-eight. It has since peaked at number eighty.

  Presentation  

 background and composition
"Ass on the Floor" is an atmospheric dance-floor filler, first released as part of Swizz Beatz' Monster Mondays on November 29, 2010. Bradon Soderberg from The Village Voice pointed out the song's "swooping Moroder synths", which were described by MTV's Mawuse Ziegbe as "a spacey sheen of synth chords". Ziegbe also noted that the song's production recreated the rapid-fire drums from Major Lazer's 2009 song "Pon de Floor". "Ass on the Floor"'s production also consists of "pounding drums" and "glittery synthesizers" whilst the vocals focus primarily on Diddy-Dirty Money's two females, Dawn Richard and Kalenna Harper. Beatz handles the chorus while Diddy drops a verse near the end of the song. According to Zeigbe, Harper and Richard's lyrics focus on "drowning their sorrows over a frustratingly volatile relationship", Beatz acts as the intermediary "commanding the lovelorn souls to forget the drama" while Diddy's melancholy lyrics "laments potent heartbreak in his verse". On February 11, 2011, "Ass on the Floor" was added to the B-playlist on the UK's biggest Urban music radio station, BBC Radio 1Xtra.
