Jessica Mauboy Teams Up With Flo-Rida

01 September 2008

Former Australian Idol finalist Jessica Mauboy has recorded a single with the help of US hip-hop star 'Flo-Rida'!

Mauboy's single will be called 'Running Back', with the video shoot to be done this week while Flo-Rida is in Australia.

Jessica could not believe her luck and said it's a dream come true for her. "I love urban music and have been a huge fan of Flo-Rida's from the moment I heard 'Low'," she said. "For him to now feature on my first single I just can't believe it! I am so excited and honoured."
