Your FM update. Recently the guys from Far*East Movement have finished up a nationwide tour with LMAFO and Lil Jon, performed at the X-Games, had their music featured during the swimsuit round of Ms. America…oh, and they got signed.
Last week something truly momentous happened. Our brothers/good friends Far*East Movement, aka FM, signed a record deal with Cherrytree Records! In case you don’t know, Cherrytree is an imprint (division) of Interscope Recrods which focuses on new artists with growth potential. They obviously saw something special with FM and realized the huge potential/talent they possess, something that we’ve seen the past few years working with them. Finally, after several months of scoping them out, working closer and closer, they reached an agreement, and FM is now signed to a major label. They’re label mates with freaking Lady Gaga, good lord. Click here (link) for the whole story, very moving in fact at how their path to this point has really come full circle.
I can’t say it enough. These guys are so inspiring. They believed in themselves, devoted their lives to it, sacrificed so much, worked their butts off, hit lows, hit highs…and it’s paying off. I know this is just the beginning of a new journey for them, but in my eyes, they’re a success story already. Truly an example that we can all look up to, that hard work pays off. Success isn’t easy, and you must stay driven and dedicated. Furthermore, how many Asian American hiphop-pop mainstream artists are out there right now? Yeah, this is a big win for our community too. Be proud.
Congrats to FM. They’ve got big big news up ahead, and you know you wanna follow along their journey. FM’s twitter @fareastmovement. Go send them a congratulations.
