"Where Them Girls At" is a song by French DJ and record producer David Guetta, featuring vocals from American rapper Flo Rida and Trinidadian-born American rapper Nicki Minaj. It was released for digital download from May 2, 2011 by Virgin Records (EMI France.), serving as the lead single from Guetta's upcoming fifth studio album Nothing But the Beat. It was written by Michael Caren, Jared Cotter, Flo Rida, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Juan and Oscar Silinas, Giorgio Tuinfort and Sandy Vee.

Initially, "Where Them Girls At" was recorded in 2010 and featured just Flo Rida, however after getting into touch with Minaj about a collaboration, Guetta played Minaj the record and she decided to record vocals for it. Computer hackers obtained an a cappella version of the song and added their own production before leaking the song online. Guetta and his label subsequently mastered a proper version of the song, released it earlier than planned and called an employee of The Pentagon to investigate the matter.

"Where Them Girls At" combines Electro house with hip hop. An accompanying music video for the song was filmed in Los Angeles in May 2011 and released June 28, 2011.

Reception Edit

Lewis Corner from Digital Spy said "[the song] is a rambunctious mix of hard-hitting thuds and candy-coated synths over lyrics spouting the standard sexy laydee and partying clichés. Its centre, however, is a sweet 'n' gooey tongue-lashing from Minaj, who commands: 'Through the club all the girls in the back of me/ This ain't football why the f**k they tryna tackle me?', in her usual quick-witted, lickety-split manner." He awarded the song three out of five stars. "Where Them Girls At" saw a top ten debut in New Zealand and a top twenty debut in Ireland and the Netherlands. In addition, the song debuted at number-one on both Belgian Ultratip charts & the official Scotland charts. On the UK Singles Chart, the song debuted at number three, giving Guetta his twelfth top twenty hit. In the United States, the song debuted at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, selling over 160,000 digital downloads in less than one week and giving Guetta his third top 20 hit in the USA. As of September 2011, the song had sold over 1,000,000 digital copies in the US. The song debuted at number three in Canada, becoming the highest debuting song that week on the Canadian Hot 100.

Lyrics Edit

[Hook] Flo Rida:

So many girls in here, where do I begin?

I seen this one, I'm 'bout to go in

Then she said, I'm here with my friends

She got me thinking, and that's when I said

"Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

So go get them, we can all be friends".

[Verse 1] Flo Rida:

Hey bring it on, baby all your friends

You're the shit, and I love that body,body

You wanna ball, let's mix it, I swear you're good

I won't tell nobody, body

You got a BFF I wanna see that girl

It's all women invited

Hairdos and nails, that Louis, Chanel

All up in the party

Presidents in my wallet, let's break this up

No rules, I'm 'bout it

Blow the whistle for the hotties

I got it shawty, it's never too much

Get me doing too much

Ten to one of me, I can handle that love

Bottles in my reach, we can all get buzzed

Holla, 'cause I'm free 'till whenever, it's no rush

[Hook] Nicki Minaj:

So many boys in here, where do I begin?

I seen this one, I'm 'bout to go in

Then he said, I'm here with my friends

He got to thinking and that's when he said

Flo Rida:

"Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj:

So go get them, we can all be freinds".

[Verse 2] Nicki Minaj:

PB! PB! Who's Peabo Bryson?

Two years ago I renewed my license

Anyway, why'd I start my verse like that?!

You can suck a dick or you can suck on a ballsack

No, no, I don't endorse that, pause that, abort that

Just the other day mi go a London, saw that

Kids down the Hyde street,

Paparazzi, all dat

Hey, hey, what can I say?

Day, da-day, day, day, day , da-day, day

Coming through the club, all the girls in the back of me

This ain't football, why the fuck they tryna tackle me?

Really, I peeped dude at the bar, like really

Looking like he wanna good time like really

Said he got a friend for my home girl Lily, Lily, Lily, Lily

[Hook] Flo Rida:

So many girls in here, where do I begin?

I seen this one, I'm 'bout to go in

Then she said, I'm here with my friends

She got me thinking, and that's when I said

Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj:

"Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

So go get them, we can all be friends".

[Bridge] Nicki Minaj:

Day, day, day, da-day, day, day, da-day, day, da-day, da-day, day

Day, day, day, da-day, day, day, da-day, day, da-day, da-day, day

Yo,where my girs at?

Yo, where my girls tryna get to jumpin', jumpin', jumpin'...

[Hook] Flo Rida:

So many girls in here, where do I begin?

I seen this one, I'm 'bout to go in

Then she said, I'm here with my friends

She got me thinking, and that's when I said

Flo Rida & Nicki Minaj:

"Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

Where them girls at, girls at?

So go get them, we can all be friends".
