Far East Movement Featuring the Cataracs & Dev, "Like a G6"
Los Angeles-based Korean-American foursome Far East Movement lands on the Billboard Hot 100 in a big way with its fast-moving single, "Like a G6." The song doesn't refer to any automotive model, but rather to the indulgent lifestyle of jet-setters, as described with playful lyrics sung by featured artist Dev. With their seasoned skills and smooth delivery, the group looks to increase the listener's cool-kid lexicon with lyrics like, "Poppin' bottles in the ice, like a blizzard/When we drink we do it right, gettin' slizzard." Group members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif and DJ Virman have shifted their sound to electro-pop since forming in 2003, and Bay Area production duo the Cataracs complete the infectious mix on "G6." While the release date of Far East Movement's first major-label album, "Free Wired," is TBD, look for some exciting collaborations, including features by Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon, Pitbull and Ryan Tedder.
