CHART SPOTLIGHT. Like no other, RedOne revisits Far East Movement’s “Like a G6.” WelcheMusic first covered the Los Angeles based quartet back in October last year, when the track initially charted on the Hot 100. The RedOne remix features Swedish-Congolese r’n’b singer Mohombi on guest vocals. The track headlines the digital remix EP.
The original version was produced by The Cataracs who has produced Snoop Dogg, New Boyz and Travis Barker since. “Like a G6” is included on the debut album Free Wired. To date, the track has been featured in TV shows such as CSI: Miami, CSI: NY and Entourage.
“Like a G6” peaked at No.7 on the Swedish singles tally in December 2010. We’ve also covered the follow-up “Rocketeer” on this blog. That track featured Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic on guest vocals. RedOne recently remixed Usher’s “More.”

The Billboard Hot 100 welcomes Los Angeles-based quartet Far*East Movement to the No.1 spot for the first time. The debut single “Like a G6” has trailed Bruno Mars on the runner-up spot, but he falls to No.2 after being the chart leader for four weeks. Despite being a No.1 hit on the Hot 100, the digital download is pushed back to No.2 by Taylor Swift’s “Back to December.”
Far*East Movement has been featured on hit TV shows such as CSI: Miami, CSI: NY and Entourage. “Like a G6” has charted in Holland, New Zealand, Switzerland, Australia and Canada as well.
Rihanna reverses her fall and moves 6-4 “Only Girl (In the World).” Swift is also the highest new entry on the Hot 100 as “December” bows at No.6. A giant hit on radio, P!nk’s “Raise Your Glass” leaps 51-11. Finally, Cee Lo Green does not seem to repeat his UK success. “F**ck You” only manages to improve its peak position to No.17.
