Far East Movement’s “Like A G6” Getting Radio play


After a song ended on the radio and the DJ talked about the artists that he had just played, I thought that I had heard something different.  I asked Number One Son, “did they just say The Far East Movement?” “Yes,” he replied. “Are you going to do a post about that?” Why yes I am!  Just like when I noticed that Charice Pempengco‘s “Like a Pyramid” getting some radio play, it seemed like a notable event  – one doesn’t hear that many Asians or Asian-Americans on mainstream radio other than Apl.de.Ap of the Black Eyed Peas. I wonder, though, if this is only happening in the Bay Area. Are people hearing “Like a G6” on the radio in Los Angeles?  How about outside of California? Also, what is the “G6” in the song anyway?  Number One Son thinks it the Pontiac G6, but I think that it refers to the Gulfstream G650 that appears in the last part of the video.
