So, yeah, LMFAO, what’cha been doin’ these days?
It seems like only yesterday that Redfoo and Sky Blu (fun music fact…they’re the son and grandson of Motown life giver, Mr. Barry Gordy) were giving us fist pumpin’ life on the floor while teaching us that it is our absolute right to fight to party rock until we motha f@ckin’ dropped…
………and that we most certainly did when it came to these two Jam rockin, life lovin’ gentlmen.
Remember? Of course, how could we ever forget. And the moment they got to shufflin-and-hustlin’ alongside Madonna during her 2012 Super Bowl Performance? F@cking priceless.
Sigh…they just don’t make it forever, do they?
With their pumpin’ fists, ’80s/’90s inspired wardrobe, thirst for life and electro-rap, Redfoo and Sky Blue got their party rockin’ start in good ol’ Los Angeles. They made their official debut in 2008 on the growing club circuit, and eventually the pulsating pair scored a record deal at Interscope and rightfully served out their debut ditty, “I’m in Miami, Bitch”
Gee, where have we had that one before….how about as the theme song for Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami? Now that booze/party filled memories are all coming back, aren’t they? Really, how could we ever forget? The track not only gained the boys our attention, but also of Lil’ Jon who collaborated on your Mom’s favorite party anthem, “Shots.”
Jersey Shore, anyone? You know it, bitch. Right, Snookie?
With the singles making LMFAO’s debut record, Party Rock, a raging success, it was only necessary for them to keep it all movin.’ his was clearly evident in their 2011 follow-up, Sorry for Party Rocking, which not only gave them two Billboard Hot 100 number in “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It,” but it would lead them to….her Madgesty.
Let’s face it, Madonna doing the Party Rock Shuffle would have been the highlight of her 2012 Super Bowl Halftime Slay if it wasn’t for, ya know, that whole M.I.A. middle finger mess. But all in all, LMFAO’s cameo will always be life lovin’ legendary, but oddly enough, Redfoo and Sky Blue were sort of never heard from again after that.
Maybe they finally party rocked too hard? Or maybe it was just the pesky ever-so-changng music industry, because we’re still waiting for their next album. But either way, the music memories that these two beat lovin’ bros gave us will absolutely last a lifetime….and that is something we should never forget.
“Party Rock Anthem” 4 Lyfe.
