LMFAO Call It Quits After Five Years
After five years of party rocking, LMFAO is taking a break – at least for a little while.
Redfoo told the AP that he and his LMFAO partner (and his nephew) Sky Blu were going in “different directions.”
“I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years. And we’re kind of like saying, well, let’s just do what’s natural and just kind of explore that, instead of like forcing it all the time,” Redfoo told the news organization.
“I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but we’re always family,” he continued. “He’ll always be my nephew, I’ll always be his uncle.”
But as news of the split made its way around the internet, the group’s publicist stepped up to confirm to SPIN magazine that the break is just a hiatus, not a permanent split. The representative said that Redfoo and Sky Blu will be working on separate projects at the moment.
Redfoo also said that the music he makes on his own won’t be much different than the music of LMFAO.
“All the music that I’m going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish… I love all the topics that we talk about” he said. “I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”
The duo began working together in 2006, and their debut album, Party Rock, was released in 2009 and was later nominated for a Best Dance/Electronica Album at the Grammy Award. However, they became known on a much wider level last year with the song “Party Rock Anthem” from their sophomore album, Sorry for Party Rocking. Of course, that album also featured the well-known single “Sexy And I Know It.”
