Who is responsible for the “dance music revival?” Did dance music ever go anywhere in the first place? These are the types of questions we ask ourselves after Redfoo‘s bold statement that his Billboard charting pop group, LMFAO, brought back “dance music” with the success of their hit “Party Rock Anthem.”
According to Popdust, Redfoo stated:
[pullquote quote="It just got everybody more into dance music, because now they can shuffle, and so it was just a big thing. " credit="Redfoo on "Party Rock Anthem""]“I think it just brought us into the households via the video, and it just got everybody more into dance music, because now they can shuffle, and so it was just a big thing. I think for some of the critics, being #1 for six weeks in a row on the Billboard, people said, ‘Now this is a real thing.’”
Media outlets are taking this rather vague statement as a declaration that LMFAO “reinvented” dance music. We’re not sure what we think. We’re too busy shufflin’
