"Feel It Still" is a song by American rock band Portugal. The Man. The song, which has interpolations from The Marvelettes' 1961 hit "Please Mr. Postman",[2][3] was written by the band along with John Hill and Asa Taccone, with the latter two serving as producers. It serves as the second single and first radio single off their eighth studio album Woodstock. The song reached number one on the US Alternative Songs, Mexican and Russian Tophit airplay chart, and became their first entry on the US Billboard Hot 100, reaching number four as of October 2017. It was also featured in advertisements for the Apple iPad Pro,[4] Vitamin Water,[5] YouTube TV and in the first and second trailers for the 2018 film Peter Rabbit.[6]

The track reached the top 10 in 18 countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

In January 2018, the song won the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on March 6, 2017. An interactive version was also released, powered by technology from WIREWAX. The interactive video contained "Easter eggs" that a viewer could click on to build their #resist toolkit to learn and support 30 different social and political causes.[7]

Commercial performance[edit]

The song became the band's first to top both the Billboard Alternative Songs and the Adult Alternative Songs charts. Taking six weeks to do so, it is the fastest an artist has achieved their first chart-topper on the latter chart since Mumford & Sons' "I Will Wait" took three weeks to reach number one.[8][9] "Feel It Still" also climbed to number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their first entry on the chart.[3] The song also peaked at number one on the Russian and Mexican airplay charts, and peaked inside the top 20 in France and Switzerland. "Feel It Still" has spent twenty weeks at number one on the Alternative Songs chart, becoming the longest-running number-one song on that chart, beating out "Madness" by Muse, which spent 19 weeks at the top from 2012 to 2013.[10]

In Billboard's November 11, 2017 issue, "Feel It Still" joined the list of songs since 2003 to have reached number one on six of the major airplay charts: Radio Songs, Pop Songs, Adult Pop Songs, Alternative Songs, Adult Alternative Songs and Dance/Mix Show Airplay. Portugal. The Man are the first act to accomplish this feat since Gotye and Kimbra with "Somebody That I Used to Know" in 2012; they are the only artists to have a number-one Alternative and Adult Alternative single also reach number one on the Dance/Mix Show Airplay since the chart's launch in August 2003. They are now also one of twelve acts to have achieved the feat of having reached number one on six or more airplay charts.[11]
