CHART SPOTLIGHT. The L.A. based electro hop duo LMFAO is trailing J.Lo in the UK with the latest hit “Party Rock Anthem.” A WelcheMusic favorite, the track features Lauren Bennett and GoonRock and has fared much better in Europe than in the US. Currently sitting at No.2 in the UK, the track has also made the top ten in Scotland, Ireland and Denmark in addition to Australia and Canada.
So far, it has peaked at No.78 on the Hot 100. “Party Rock Anthem” is the first single off the sophomore album Sorry for Party Rocking. LMFAO got its breakthrough back in December 2008 with “I’m in Miami Bitch” (clean version “I’m in Miami Trick”). A mashup version of DJ Chuckie’s “Let the Bass Kick” and “I’m in Miami Bitch” created a UK No.9 hit (titled “Let the Bass Kick in Miami Bitch”).
LMFAO was also featured on David Guetta’s hit “Gettin’ Over You” with Chris Willis and Fergie.
