Background[edit]

"I Gotta Feeling" was written and composed by all the members of The Black Eyed Peas (credited as William Adams, Allan Pineda, Jaime Gomez, Stacy Ferguson) together with French producers David Guetta, Frederick Riesterer, both of who produced the song. will.i.am provided additional synthesizer work to the song. The song was recorded at Square Prod in Paris, France and Metropolis Studios in London, England, United Kingdom. "I Gotta Feeling" is the second single released from The E.N.D. (2009). Interscope Records serviced the song to contemporary hit and rhythmic crossover radios on June 15, 2009 in the United States.[12][13] In an interview with Annie Reuter of Marie Claire, will.i.am stated that "It’s dedicated to all the party people out there in the world that want to go out and party. Mostly every song on the Black Eyed Peas record is painting a picture of our party life. It was a conscious decision to make this type of record. Times are really hard for a lot of people and you want to give them escape and you want to make them feel good about life, especially at these low points."[14]

Composition[edit]

"I Gotta Feeling" is an uptempo dance pop song that runs a length of 4:49 (4 minutes and 49 seconds). The song follows in the inspirational dance-pop theme of The E.N.D., being built upon the heavy use of Auto-Tune and futuristic synthesizers while running through a tick-tock rhythm.[15][16][17] The song begins with in a restrained fashion then moves in to a throbbing dance beat that changes patterns so that at least one reviewer thought it shifted tempos,[16] although in fact the tempo does not change at all, suggesting the use of a click track in recording. It contains electronic influences. Ann Powers of Los Angeles Times noted the song's similarities to Five Stairsteps' song "Ooh Child", writing that it emulates the song's "use of a repetitive, warm vocal line to signify a good mood coming on."[18] According to Jimmy Iovine of the Interscope Geffen A&M label group, the melody was inspired by the U2 song "I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight": "I sent will.i.am over to the studio to do some remixes on I'll Go Crazy. He works on them for two weeks, comes back and writes I Gotta Feeling. The chords are U2 chords, 100 per cent. Will even told them."[19]

Critical reception[edit]

"I Gotta Feeling" received generally positive reviews from music critics. David Balls, a writer for Digital Spy, gave the song a four-star rating, writing that the song is "every bit as quirky as its predecessor ("Boom Boom Pow")".[16] However, he compared it to Girls Aloud's "Biology", writing that they sound like a collection of musical ideas "that only makes sense after a few listens."[16] Another writer for Digital Spy, Nick Levine, praised "I Gotta Feeling" and "Rock That Body" as ace collaborations with French disc jockey David Guetta.[20] Music critics like John Bush of All Music Guide and Andy Gill of The Independent labeled it as one of the albums best tracks.[15][21] Ann Powers wrote a positive review about "I Gotta Feeling", noting that "the Peas do let in some human sweetness and light" on the song and that it uses "a repetitive, warm vocal line to signify a good mood coming on."[18] Ben Westhoff of Las Vegas Weekly dismissed the song as a blend of house, electro and dancehall beats that do not work compared to songs on The E.N.D. like "Imma Be" and "One Tribe".[22] Mike Schiller, a writer for PopMatters, found the song to be irresistible, writing that it "is one of those dance tunes that’s impossible to hate thanks to something like good natured naïveté".[23] In his review of the album for Stuff.co.nz, Chris Schultz dismissed the lyrics, writing that they were the worst since Flo Rida's "Right Round".[24]

The Observer-Dispatch writer David T. Farr praised the song as "the summer track of 2009", writing that "It’s one of those songs you grasp onto right away and crank up as the beat goes on, even the first time you hear it (guilty as charged)."[25] Will Hines of Consequence of Sound shared similar feelings about "I Gotta Feeling", defining it as "chart baiting".[26] Guy Blackman, a writer for The Age, labeled "I Gotta Feeling" and "Boom Boom Pow" as further dumbed-down dance-pop songs.[27] Bill Lamb of About.com gave the song a four-star rating, praising it for the difference of style from previous releases by The Black Eyed Peas and as a great summer song with a feel good mood., but he criticized the lack of lyrical depth and constant use of Auto-Tune.[17] Billboard's Chris Williams praised the song as their most mainstream release, writing that "they trade off on a simple, yet effective melody and message".[28]
