LMFAO, ‘Sexy and I Know It’ – Song Review
Party rockers LMFAO have absolutely no self-esteem issues, at least judging by ‘Sexy and I Know It,’ a boastful new song so ridiculous it makes Right Said Fred’s ‘I’m Too Sexy’ look like a work of creative genius.
The song from the duo’s ‘Sorry for Party Rocking’ album kicks off with an up-tempo beat with a hint of disco, which leads into verses in which SkyBlu and Redfoo rap about how girls can’t resist their unorthodox style: “When I’m at the beach, I’m in a Speedo trying to tan my cheeks / This is how I roll, come on ladies, it’s time to go / We headed to the bar, baby don’t be nervous / No shoes, no shirt, and I still get serviced.”
Even for a song with an obvious tongue-in-cheek tone, the lyrics are pretty embarrassing, much like the outdated synth loops. And we’re not sure what they were thinking with the underwhelming pre-chorus, “Girl, look at that body / Girl, look at that body / Girl, look at that body / I work out!,” which gets repeated six times during the track.
‘Sexy and I Know It’ is a song that plays well in concert, when the band and their backup dancers strip down to their swimsuits and dance around the stage. With those distracting visuals absent, the song doesn’t come close to packing the punch of ‘Party Rock Anthem.’
