LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu. LMFAO's members were descendants of Motown Records founder Berry Gordy, Jr. RedFoo and SkyBlu grew up in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood Pacific Palisades, where they formed the group LMFAO in 2006 and later became part of the electro house scene. LMFAO started building a local buzz through its shows and radio play. In 2010, it was featured on David Guetta's smash hit "Gettin' Over You", which charted all over Europe and the U.S., including reaching number one in the UK Singles Chart.
LMFAO is best remembered for its songs "Party Rock Anthem", which reached #1 in the United Kingdom, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States and "Sexy And I Know It" which reached number one in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United States. "Party Rock Anthem" also reached the top five in Italy and Norway. Worldwide, "Party Rock Anthem" was the third best-selling digital single of 2011 with sales of 9.7 million copies; it is also its biggest throughout its career. "Shuffling" is a reference to a dance style from Melbourne, Australia, hence the song's popularity in the Australian charts. Following the song's release, LMFAO announced that they were on hiatus.
