Album Review: Flo Milli Proves She’s Here to Stay on New Rap Album “Fine Ho, Stay”

Before her latest album, Fine Ho, Stay, released via RCA Records, Alabama rapper Flo Milli was on a fast track to becoming a hard-to-ignore figure in hip-hop who demands attention. Hot off the hype of her Rolling Loud LA performance, she will tour nationally and internationally all summer long, including a return to California on May 18 at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

Following the success of her hit “Never Lose Me,” which she recently performed on her late-night debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Flo took her growing popularity in stride. While she’s no stranger to singles skyrocketing to success, the brief timeline between its release less than four months ago and now is nothing short of impressive. All without losing her unique voice, which effortlessly alternates between hip-hop and R&B when needed.

Album opener “Understand” makes sure everyone understands Flo isn’t leaving anytime soon, proudly declaring, “Fuck you, pay me” before going on a braggadocious barrage. The late 90s/early 00s Dirty South production fits the vehemently raw flow juxtaposed by easily quotable one-liners. For a song that boils down to simply talking your shit, it captures Flo’s charisma that remains consistent throughout the tracklist.

Featuring Gunna, who Flo will be opening up for on upcoming tour dates, “Edible” tastefully and cleverly compares that first time in a while to the moment the edible finally hits. Faint guitar riffs in the background give the song a distinct identity compared to other trap-heavy tracks, making for a welcomed switch-up. Gunna’s appearance, while brief, lends an extra punch to the track without taking away from Flo, who continually runs the show.

True to Flo Milli’s name, “Never Lose Me” went platinum in no time for the song’s earworm chorus that’s hard to get out of your head. On the remix, SZA and Cardi B join her in a high-profile crossover that would have been a considerable feat. But the fact that Flo stands her own against expectedly great features proves she’s in it for the long run.

Long before what’s shaping up to be a banner year for the 23-year-old, Flo was already taking big swings on albums such as Ho, why is you here? and You Still Here, Ho ?, the two of which comprised the stepping stones for a now complete trilogy.

“‘Fine Ho, Stay’ is the end of a trilogy,” said Flo. “I have been locked in working on my album for so long and my only goal was to deliver my best work to my fans and continue to grow as an artist.”
