Before becoming MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, Season 3, Quest Crew’s energy and charisma captured the attention of audiences with their numerous crew and individual performances on American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance?. Members of Quest Crew have been featured in LMFAO’s videos and television performances. Sidney Samson started DJ-ing in 1995 when he was just 14. A remixer and producer Samson has been keeping dance floors packed ever since. Noted in Billboard’s May 2011 issue as “One To Watch”, Dutch born & bred Eva Simons is ready to take the electro-dance world by storm with a brand new album this year. Having previously collaborated with LMFAO, will.i.am & Chris Brown, Eva gained much acclaim recently with the massive hit she co-wrote and featured with DJ Afrojack called “Take Over Control”. The single topped iTunes dance charts globally, selling almost a million in the U.S alone so far, and becoming an anthem that has crossed over into mainstream radio worldwide. Born in Bradford to a Jamaican father and Uruguayan mother, Natalia creates razor-edged pop. Her debut album, Perfectionist, debuted #1 on the US Billboard Heatseekers Chart, and she has toured with Katy Perry, Black Eyed Peas, Ke$ha, Robyn, and Kelis. She is also featured on LMFAO's hit track "Champagne Showers.”
LMFAO’s sophomore album Sorry For Party Rocking (Party Rock/will.i.am/ Cherrytree/Interscope) was recently certified gold and quickly approaching platinum. The album has produced two #1 singles, “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” while the third single “Sorry For Party Rocking” is climbing the Top 40 radio charts. The video for “Sorry For Party Rocking” premiered on E! last week and already has over 9 million views on VEVO. The video features LMFAO and the party rock crew in full on house party mode.
LMFAO has performed on numerous television shows including Dancing with the Stars, So You Think You Can Dance, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America, The American Music Awards and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. The duo recently appeared in national commercials for Budweiser including a Bud Light commercial that aired right before the Bridgestone Super Bowl Halftime show with LMFAO in route to join Madonna on stage but instead ending up at Dale’s Halftime bar.
LMFAO’s ”Party Rock Anthem” has surpassed 10 million units in total sales worldwide! “Party Rock Anthem” was the #2 top selling song of 2011 on iTunes in the U.S. behind Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and it was the #1 selling song on iTunes in the UK, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden. The video has seen over 360 million views on VEVO and was featured by KIA in their award winning KIA Hamster advertising campaign.
