CHART SPOTLIGHT. It’s fun to play the guessing-game, and so far we’re a bit confused. WelcheMusic hopes for “One Day” to become the next LMFAO single off Sorry for Party Rocking. Earlier this month we hinted that “Best Night” would become the next single. Yet, Wikipedia has changed the indication for “next single” to “One Day.”
Still a worldwide smash, “Party Rock Anthem” (featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock). It also interpolates lyrics from Rick Ross’ “Hustlin’.” It has been number one in several countries. Also sampling a bit from Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love,” the single has amassed more than 2.5m digital downloads in the United States alone.
CHART SPOTLIGHT. By now, we’re all familiar with the LA based electro hop recording duo LMFAO. Their “Party Rock Anthem” finally ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, in addition to topping the tallies in countries such as New Zealand, the UK, Austria, Brazil and Denmark.
The group has already managed to produce a follow up – “Champagne Showers” which features the English singer-songwriter Natalia Kills on guest vocals. Kills issued her debut set Perfectionist on the German market this April – it contains her debut single “Mirrors.”
Rumours say that the third single off LMFAO’s album Sorry for Party Rocking will be “Best Night.” Featuring will.i.am, GoonRock and Eva Simons as guests, the track is bound to hit the charts. Nevertheless, expect “Party Rock Anthem” to last although the summer!

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.
