NEW YORK, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sky Blu, half of the Grammy-nominated and global pop sensation known as LMFAO has been finding his independence since he released his first solo-album, "Rebel Music" as a free download to his fans last year. The current singles, "Pop Bottles," and "Salud" are available at iTunes. The album is still available as a free download to fans at www.bigbad.com.
The creative vision behind the "Party Rock" movement, that dominated global pop culture, has already released the first single to his new album The Party President scheduled for worldwide release in July, later this year. "Go On Girl," debuted on The Arsenio Hall Show and is available now at iTunes. The music video to accompany the single "Go On Girl" will be released May 20. The song is the first ingredient to the next pop culture phenomenon. Fresh off an incredible showcase at the famed music festival SXSW, Sky Blu is ready to introduce the world to his alter-ego. Meet The Party President: 8KY 6LU.
The Party President: A super entertainer multi-talented musical artist, deejay, emcee, performer, and extreme sports enthusiast. His message is simply FXCK YEAH which means to live one notch above incredible. And to put an exclamation on the movement, The Party President includes a new creative reinterpretation of Sky Blu as 8KY 6LU and a more colorful overhaul of his public image. "The Party President is here to inspire the world to have fun," 8KY 6LU jokes.
New movements can be challenging to birth. Fortunately, 8KY 6LU is no stranger to the process. After all, he's a member of LMFAO, perhaps the greatest pop phenomenon of the decade. And he has a plan. On May 12, 8KY 6LU will release the FXCK YEAH mixtape in advance and in promotion of the forthcoming album. 8KY 6LU is currently touring worldwide.
