America’s favorite Asian Hip Hop group, Far East Movement, have made it into the mainstream music scene, it seems. And I know it’s legit since I saw it with my own eyes and heard it on the radio (Hot 99.5!!!!) with my own ears!!
Their current single, “Like a G6” featuring The Cataracs and Dev, is currently sitting pretty at #9 on the Itunes “Top Songs” chart. WHOO HOO! The last time I was this excited upon hearing FM was when I heard “Dance Like Michael Jackson” playing on “Gossip Girl”!
Take a peek at their “Like a G6” MV:
This past February, Far East Movement signed a major record deal with Cherrytree Records, a subsidiary of Interscope Records. Earlier this year, they also toured with Robyn and Kelis on their double headlining tour along with Dan Black, and toured with Lady Gaga in Japan!
They will be performing at the upcoming “ISA” shows in LA and New York on September 5th and August 28th, respectively alongside acts including AJ Rafael, Jay Park, Poreotics and Quest Crew. And, starting September 13th, the group began touring with Mike Posner’s Up In The Air Tour throughout the US! These boys are mighty busy!
Their upcoming album, Free Wired, their first under Cherry/Interscope Records, is scheduled to drop on October 12, 2010. Their tracks will feature popular artists such as Bruno Mars, Pitbull, Sean Kingston, Lil Jon, Snoop Dogg, Natalia Kills, and Ryan Tedder from OneRepublic, and include their current hit single, “Like a G6”. Looks like Far East Movement is moving on up (like a G6!!)!
