After years of party rocking together, the members of LMFAO are apparently taking a hiatus to pursue solo projects.
In a new interview with the Australian Associated Press, Redfoo reveals that he and nephew Sky Blu have no immediate plans to record together. “I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years,” says the 37-year-old. “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.”
Since the release of their 2011 sophomore album “Sorry for Party Rocking,” LMFAO scored a pair of No. 1 hits on the Hot 100, “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It.” The former track was named Billboard’s Song of the Summer in 2011, while the latter was performed at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. The duo also appeared alongside Madonna at the Super Bowl halftime show in February.
Recently, Redfoo has focused on other projects, including co-producing Carly Rae Jepsen’s new single “This Kiss” and translating his enthusiasm for tennis into the Party Rock Open, which will be held this weekend in Las Vegas. While he may not produce anything for LMFAO soon, the elder statesman of the group is still a party rocker.
“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 says. “I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”
