Sky Blu Talks Healthy LMFAO Competition
Although LMFAO duo Sky Blu and Redfoo are both pursuing solo careers, there are no signs of a complete split. But, is it a coincidence that both singles are about bottles or is there a bit of family rivalry going on?
“I’d say it’s healthy; me and Foo are always competitive,” Sky Blu told 92.3 NOW/New York. “We always play basketball and ping-pong together and we come from a serious, competitive family. Its all good, but the most important thing is for the LMFAO fans to understand that me and Foo, separately and together, are LMFAO. So support us both.”
Sky’s latest single “Pop Bottles” details the singer’s rising fame.
“Had a few hits now we changed the game/Ish gets crazy when you get some fame/Different city every night but it’s all the same/Everywhere I go people know my name,” he raps.
Sky went on to explain the meaning behind the track.
“When you reach a level of success — and this is real — things happen, man. Friends change,” he admits. “You get some friends that are there for the moment and then if you hurt your back they’re not there no more. But you know, no matter what everywhere we go around the world people know who we are and people want to have a good time and party.”
The album title for Sky’s solo effort has not been released yet, but it’s set to drop on July 4th and will feature an array of different tracks.
“We got trap music, hip-hop ‘cause I’m hip-hop. I used to battle rap and all that. Rock ‘n roll, indie music,” he adds. “We got about four or five uptempo electros. But it definitely shows a spectrum of what music I can create and I love. A lot of it is with Mark Rosas. He’s my main man.”
