An electro-rap duo from Los Angeles, CA, LMFAO
made their major-label debut in 2008. Comprised of producers, DJs, and clothing designers Redfoo
(the son and grandson, respectively, of Motown
impresario Berry Gordy
worked the club circuit for years before making their major-label debut in 2008 with the single "I'm in Miami Bitch,"
a song inspired by their first experience at the Winter Music Conference. In the wake of the single's release on Interscope
and its hitting the charts in several countries, LMFAO
toured the American club circuit and prepared their full-length album debut, Party Rock, which was released in July 2009. "La La La" and "Shots" (featuring Lil Jon) also charted, and LMFAO
placed songs on Jersey Shore
and Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami
. In 2010, the duo featured on a worldwide Top Ten hit, David Guetta
's "Gettin' Over You." Their next single as LMFAO
was the suitably anthemic "Party Rock Anthem," which topped the charts in more than ten countries during 2011, including the U.S. The follow-up full-length, Sorry for Party Rocking, was released in June 2011.
