Bye-O, LMFAO! Party Rockers Taking a Timeout
The party rockers’ party is coming to an end—at least for now.
LMFAO—aka the duo made up of Redfoo and SkyBlu—are going on indefinite hiatus, the group’s label confirms to reporters.
The label also reveals that the two musicians are currently working on separate projects.
“I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years,” Redfoo said, per published reports. “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 notes that he and SkyBlu have begun moving in “different directions,” adding, “I think that we naturally just started hanging with two different sets of people, two different crowds, but we’re always family.”
And what a family it is: The duo come from serious musical royalty. Redfoo, whose real name is Stefan Kendal Gordy, is the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy, and SkyBlu (aka Skyler Austen Gordy) is Redfoo’s nephew.
Don’t expect them to be down for long: Redfoo hints that the music he plans to create solo won’t stray too far from LMFAO’s thumping, dance-floor-burning beats.
The duo’s explosive 2009 debut album, Party Rock, spent an impressive 33 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, and their follow-up, Sorry for Party Rocking, spawned two of their biggest hits: “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy and I Know It,” which both shot to No. 1.
