"I'm Feeling You" is a song recorded by Santana with The Wreckers (Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp) for Santana's 2005 album All That I Am. It was written by Branch, Kara DioGuardi and John Shanks.

The music video (directed by The Malloys) showed Branch and Carlos Santana singing onstage of a party, with Jessica Harp singing background.

It was Santana's second collaboration with Branch, the first being "The Game of Love" (2002). The single reached number fifty-five on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and performed best on adult contemporary radio formats, reaching number five on Billboard's AC chart and number six on Hot AC.

Background[edit]

On a message posted to her message board on 6 December 2005, Branch expresses her dissatisfaction with being associated with the record [1]. She asserts that she was “pressured” by her record company, Maverick Records, to sing on the track, with Jessica Harp being similarly pushed into it (so that Maverick could promote The Wreckers, the name of the Branch/Harp duo) [2]. Branch also claims that she did not do any writing for the song, asserting that her name in the writing credits was used by John Shanks as a “bargaining tool” [3].
