LMFAO Cover Billboard and Discuss Party Rocking Lifestyle
Party rockers LMFAO have snagged the cover of Billboard, where uncle RedFoo and his nephew Sky Blu talk about their party lifestyle, the success of their current album and their desire to score several more hits from it.
Sky Blu explains that the duo’s new album, ‘Sorry for Party Rocking,’ was inspired by the adventures they had after the release of their debut, ‘Party Rock,’ including a party at Cannes with Rick Ross:
“We’ve had a lot of experience as the party starters, the life of the party, that we didn’t when we released ‘Party Rock,’ like being able to spray champagne all over everyone and they love it and don’t want to fight you. When people expect that from you, it’s a whole different experience. So that really led us to write this album.”
The album title, Sky Blu says, is an honest apology to his neighbors, who always have to put up with his raucous celebrations:
“I’ve had the police called to my house nine times, Foo’s had the police called to his house. We just party and we’re always making music and just having fun with our friends. So we just basically say, ‘Hey, sorry that our party might be keeping you from falling asleep. But at the end of the day, we’re not gonna stop.’ We are nice people, so we will apologize. But we’re going to keep the party going.”
‘Party Rock Anthem’ remains lodged in the No. 1 spot, and LMFAO hope it will be the first in a string of hits from their latest record.
“The consensus is that ‘Sorry for Party Rocking’ has five singles,” says manager Ian Fletcher. “That’s superstar mentality. Like a Katy Perry. Some people get one or two singles and they’re on to the next. The label feels we have five.”
