Career[edit]

In 2007, Sky Blu teamed up with his uncle Redfoo to form LMFAO. They are known for their hit songs "Party Rock Anthem" and "Sexy and I Know It," which were released in 2011. "Party Rock Anthem" became the most successful song of their entire career, peaking at number one in over ten countries, including France, the UK, the U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Germany, Ireland, and Australia. LMFAO is currently in a hiatus that started in September 2012. In 2010, Sky Blu created Big Bad University ("the first university for dreamers"), a collective of artists, which is mainly composed of the rapper Shwayze, the ex-Paradiso Girls member Chelsea Korka and the producer, singer and songwriter Mark Rosas. In 2013, Sky released his two first singles: "Pop Bottles" in January with Mark Rosas, and "Salud" in April with his manager Reek Rude, Sensato and the actor Wilmer Valderrama. A few months later, on July 4, he released his 9-track first album Rebel Music as a free download. In January 2014, Sky Blu introduced to the world his alter ego The Party President, with his single "Go On Girl". On December 14, Sky Blu was invited to the Miss World ceremony to perform his single "We Love Girls" with KG Superstar which was released the next month on iTunes.
