"Like a G6"

"Like a G6" is the first single from American musical group Far East Movement's third studio album Free Wired. The song was released on April 13, 2010. The song features The Cataracs and singer/rapper Dev. The song chorus features a sample from Dev's song "Booty Bounce".

"Like a G6" was number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks and ended on November 6, 2010. The song was number 1 again for the week of November 27 in the same year.[2]

The "G6" in the song "Booty Bounce" was sampled in "Like a G6". The song was put into the lyrics after the producers of the song were trying to look for a rhyme for the line "Sippin' sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6".[3] The producers decided to choose "G6", which is meant to be a reference to the private airplane model Gulfstream IV. According to Far East Movement member Kev Nish, they decided that a G6 was "flyer than a G4".[4]
