Yes It's True: Far East Movement Takes The #1 Spot Over Justin Bieber

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

I should probably qualify however that it was from one of the major local radio stations here in the Twin Cities where people call and txt for their favorite song - but if people want to consistently say that the real litmus test is gaining recognition in Mid-America (because we're the ones that really count and will bail you out when your metros fall into the ocean) - well - I guess they should be #1 on Billboard.

They're not - but they're damn close.

Far East Movement's song "Like a G6" (featuring Dev and The Cataracs) has been tearing up the music billboards lately. It's receiving major play on pop radio stations everywhere. It currently sits at #16 on the billboard top 100, which is easily the highest ever for an Asian American musical group. This is unprecedented territory, and encouraging news for other talented musical groups like Legaci that faced early barriers but see recent traction.
I'm just going to go out on limb here (not really) and say that they're going to sell a lot of albums in their first week when Free Wired comes out on October 12th.
