Like a G6 ist ein House- und Hip-Hop-Song der aus Los Angeles stammenden Elektro-Hop-Band Far East Movement, zusammen mit der US-amerikanischen Pop-Rap-Gruppe The Cataracs und der US-Rapperin Dev.

Der Name des Liedes geht zurück auf die Gulfstream IV (G4). [1] Im Lied wird ein Sample aus Devs kommerziell erfolglosem Lied Booty Bounce verwendet[2].

Das Lied stieg in den USA-Billboard-Charts bis auf Platz 1, in Kanada erreichte die Single Platz 9. In der Schweizer Hitparade kam Like a G6 bis auf Platz 10 vor[3], in Deutschland stieg es am 10. Dezember 2010 auf Platz 16 der Media-Control-Charts ein. Am 12. Oktober 2010 wurde die Single in den USA mit über einer Million verkauften Exemplaren mit Platin ausgezeichnet. In den Download- und Airplay-Charts der USA erreichte Like a G6 auch Platz 1.

Im Musikvideo zu Like a G6 spielt Erica Ocampo die Hauptrolle[4] und tanzt darin mit Far East Movement.[5]

It's not a car, convertible, four-door. It's not a watch," Kev Nish explained to MTV News. "But Drake, Drake talks about having G4 pilots on deck, so we said, 'What's flyer than a G4?' Of course, it would be a G6."“
