Lmfao collaborator Goonrock spent time away from the Hollywood studio where he wrote and recorded Party Rock Anthem and Sexy & I Know It looking at the lavish homes he knew he would one day be able to afford.
The songwriter/producer was dirt poor when he started working with school friend RedFoo and LMFAO sidekick Sky Blu - but he knew the records they were working on were going to become huge hits.
He tells WENN, "I've been broke my whole life... and we were working in the (Hollywood) hills. We did the album from a house in Hollywood and while I was writing it, I'd drive up into the Hills and check out houses I couldn't afford.
"Instead of clubbing and hanging out, I'd be househunting, visualising where I was gonna be - and I'm here now. It's just amazing."
GoonRock reveals the place he bought with the cash he made from the two songs is one of the places he used to dream about while writing and recording them.
