LMFAO's 'Party Rock Anthem' Makes No. 1 On Billboard's Hot 100!

The LA based dynamic duo LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem," featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, was recently named number 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 list on July 7, 2011 via the website. Sources say, that the “Party Rock Anthem" is rocking comfortably at the top, knocking Pitbull's "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo, AfroJack and Nayer from its number one spot down to number two. From disc jockeying, to producing music, to clothing designing, Redfoo and Sky Blu of LMFAO have been involved in the club and music scene years before their major-label debut in 2008. 

Think that's the end of the buzz, well the song's buzz doesn't stop there! According to sources the duo has topped not only ITunes charts in seven countries but has also made it to the top on English pop charts for the months of May and April 2011. Music sources underline that the mega hit by the duo is definitely one of the greatest gainers and digital honors, with 22% in digital sales, 258,000 downloads sold and with a 115 million in all-format audience.

LMFAO’s "Party Rock Anthem" has definitely made its mark and has kept other well-known artists and heavy hitters such as Jennifer Lopez and Chris Brown from reaching the number one spot on the famous Billboard Hot 100 list. Aside from gaining popularity through their “what’s not to love,” funky-fresh dance/pop/hip-hop music party tracks the Los Angeles based duo are getting their "shuffle on,” not only for their Hot 100 coronation but also for their duo status bragging rights. Media sources confirm that LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem” is the first number one to land the Hot 100 list, made by a duo since 2004. Prior to LMFAO’s “Party Rock Anthem,” only two other duos have reigned at number one on Billboard's Hot 100 list. OutKast's "Ms. Jackson" reigning at the number one spot on February 17, 2001, and K-CI and JoJo's "All My Life" spending three weeks at number one in April of 1998, were the only duo groups with a song landing the number one spot on Billboard's Hot 100.

Whether these “music designers,” will hold the number one spot for weeks to come is unknown. The fact is that audiences are hooked to LMFAO's tracks, such as "I'm in Miami B" and "Party Rock Anthem" and they can't wait until the next catchy club hitter is officially released.
