[VIDEO] Cherrytree Pop Chop Interview with Arjan Featuring LMFAO
There's a lot more to LMFAO than just banging dance beats and massive club grooves. One little, yet important, detail people tend to overlook is that the duo of RedFoo and SkyBlu are the son and grandson, respectively, of Motown record label founder Berry Gordy.
With music deeply rooted in their DNA, it should really come as no surprise that they chose to pursue a career in music as well. And growing up in, with and around music ever since they can remember gives the two a keen perspective on making music and the industry at large
Today, the two party-rockers released their sophomore album "Sorry For Party Rocking" that was introduced by the global smash single "Party Rock Anthem" that went straight to number one in pop charts around the world. The album features hyper-catchy dance beats and epic synth chords that come along with plenty of lyrical wit. (Preview the album here)
I sat down with Redfoo and SkyBlu recently in the Cherrytree House to learn a little bit more about their music, album and their unique upbringing. LMFAO wouldn't be quite themselves if they didn't try to pull a party prank or two. Totally fun! Have a look after the break.
Weekend Dance Jam: LMFAO "Party Rock Anthem" (Barletta Remix)
DJ Barletta took on the mighty challenge of revamping LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," one of the biggest hits of the moment. The Canadian soundboard wizard ripped out the song's anthemtic and signature synth chords and replaced them with some playful new key strokes of his own. It's a fresh new spin on the jammin' original that is flying up the charts everywhere.
In fact, even though the group is about to release their new new single "Champagne Showers" in the next few weeks, "Party Rock Anthem" is still going strong and slated to be one of the most requested dance tunes of the summer. It's kicky new remixes like this one that will help to keep LMFAO on top of your playlist. Remember that there's no "led in their zeppelin" and this party rocking is not about to stop anytime soon.

Single Review: LMFAO Featuring Natalia Kills "Champagne Showers"
LMFAO is on fire. The group is flying up the charts everywhere with "Party Rock Anthem," grabbing the #1 spot on the pop charts from the U.K. to Australia. The song is currently a top 5 tune on iTunes in the U.S and shuffling upwards.
While "Party Rock Anthem" is still going strong, the totally fun L.A. duo of Redfoo (Stefan Gordy) and Skyblu (Skyler Gordy) is getting ready to make the party rock even harder with their new single "Champagne Showers" that features none other than Cherrytree Records label mate Natalia Kills. The track is taken from their forthcoming new LP "Sorry For Party Rocking" that will be released on June 21.
"Champagne Showers" is once again an unstoppable dance pop tune that includes LMFAO's universally-accepted trademark ingredients of party-starting lyrics, a relentless club groove and massive arena-sized chords that are instantly energizing. There's never a dull moment with LMFAO and "Champagne Showers" is solid proof of that.
Make sure to keep an eye out for the song's video in which Natalia Kills prominently appears together with Redfoo and Skyblu. Expect LMFAO and Natalia Kills to also team up and perform "Champagne Showers" together at Cherrytree London, a mighty pop alternative fest that will be held in London on June 13 and will also feature Far East Movement, Frankmusik and Colette Carr.
