"Just Feel Better" was the second international single to be released from Santana's 2005 album All That I Am. The song features lead vocals by Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, also signed to Sony Music Entertainment. The song is produced by John Shanks and written by Jamie Houston, Buck Johnson and Damon Johnson. The single achieved reasonable success in Australia, debuting at Number 8 on the ARIA chart and receiving significant airplay. In Australia it has been on Rage (ABC) and videohits (channel 10) a number of times.

The song was also recorded with Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin on vocals but Santana said he felt Tyler did it better, with more emotion, although he liked both renditions.

In the music video Nikki Reed stars as the main girl through the video. She is shown to have various troubles, such as a teacher who makes sexual advances towards her and a strained relationship with her mother. At the very end she finally meets a really nice guy but a terrible accident happens which kills him instantly. This was the final straw for her. She makes amends with her mother and gets better and better at school. She actually wants to become someone worth fighting for. And as the song's title says, all she wants is to just feel better.

This song is shown to be playing on the first generation iPod Nano on its packaging box.
