LMFAO's Redfoo Announces Solo Album 'Where the Sun Goes' Following "Juicy Wiggle"
Redfoo, one half of LMFAO, recently announced his debut solo album, Where the Sun Goes. The effort, which will feature the single "Juicy Wiggle," is due out this summer according to a press release. Where the Sun Goes will be out via Redfoo's Party Rock Records.
"It reminds me of summer," the artist said about the lead single. "It's got a relaxed but fun groove to it and that's the overall feeling of the album. Summer is about having fun and my music is about making you feel good. It's the antidote to to what you read in the news every day."
"Juicy Wiggle" has amassed more than three million views on YouTube since it was posted in March (see below), proving that fans are interested in the singer's blend of two unlikely genres.
"'Juicy Wiggle' (from the group's Redfoo) makes the case that pop has been shamelessly silly all along, attempting an unlikely fusion of contemporary EDM and Fifties rock," Rolling Stone wrote. "This is how the hop would have sounded if your grandma knew about Jell-O shots."
In 2012, Redfoo and nephew Sky Blu decided to go on hiatus in order to work on solo projects.
“I feel like we’ve been doing this for so long, five or six years,” Redfoo said at the time. “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. All the music that I’m going to make is always going to be LMFAO-ish … I love all the topics that we talk about. I was really passionate about bringing party music to the world, so I will always be making some kind of party music.”
The group released its last album, Sorry for Party Rocking, in 2011.
