Far East Movement ft. Ryan Tedder (of One Republic) - Rocketeer

Producer:
The Stereotypes and The Smeezingtons
Album:
Free Wired

Anyone remember Disney live-action classic The Rocketeer? It was a little before my time, but I distinctly recall renting it and spending a week or so of my childhood completely obsessed. As pumped as I was to hear Kev Nish, DJ Virman, Prohgress and J-Splif of the Far East Movement rap about zooming around in rocket packs and battling Nazis on the new, Bruno Mars co-written single Rocketeer, my disappointment when I learned that it had absolutely nothing to do with the film was short-lived – how can I hold it against them when the song is so damn catchy? Backed by the soaring, piano-laced electro-pop boardwork of The Stereotypes, the 2 Is Better Than 1 crew extend their hand to a special lady, asking her to accompany them on the ride of her life. OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder sets the cherry on top of this upbeat musical confection, showing off his falsetto in a smooth guest chorus. So, Booth readers, is this one destined to, well, rocket to the top of the charts? Those digging it can hear more on the FEM’s Free Wired LP, released Oct. 12, and available now in stores and online.
