Avicii's "Levels" Video: For Those Who Wish Flo Rida Wasn't Involved With "Good Feeling"

As mentioned the other day, both Flo Rida's "Good Feeling" and the song that one's melody is sampled from, Avicii's "Levels," are riding high on the UK chart, at #3 and #4, respectively. (Here in the States, "Good Feeling" is at #7 on the Hot 100 while "Levels" is #66.)

Now, if you're like me, you just pretend that "Good Feeling" is some mid-'90s Euordance jam when it comes on the radio — the kind that used to have the diva wailing on the chorus while a German rapper spit nonsense on the verses. But, if you don't have the patience to suspend disbelief when it comes to Flo Rida, then just go with "Levels".

Here's Avicii's video, which premiered today and is sans the Swedish DJ:

    There were no German rappers. All of them were American who happened to be living in Germany (i.e. Snap!, Culture Beat, etc.).

    Olaf "O-Jay" Jeglitza from Real McCoy and Smooth T (Toni Cottura) from Fun Factory are both German born and raised. That said, a few of the girls in Real McCoy were US army brats based in Germany.
