"It Feels So Good" is a song by British singer Sonique. It was first released on 1 December 1998 and peaked at number twenty four on the UK Singles Chart;[3] it was re-released in May 2000, and spent three weeks at number 1 on the same chart. The song remained in the top 40 for fourteen weeks and became the third-biggest-selling single of 2000 in Britain. It has sold over 700,000 copies in the UK as of October 2014.[4]

The song also proved successful in many other countries, including the United States, where some repeated radio airplay in Florida helped it to reach number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100[5][6] and led her to sign with Republic Records.[7]

Background and content[edit]

Sonique said of the song, "It's about this guy whom I really liked years ago, but who didn't return my feelings. For he was very successful and I wasn't — at that time. And he thought that I was in love with his success. This song is just a way of declaring that it was him I liked."[8] The song received widespread acclaim after it was played by a Tampa, Florida deejay in February 2000. Because of the song's notoriety, Sonique was approached by Universal Music executives Doug Morris and Jimmy Iovine. She was eventually signed to Universal, and her album Hear My Cry was the first to be released on Universal's new internet-based record label, Republic Records.[9]

Music video[edit]

One of two music videos[clarification needed] for the song was directed by Tim Story and premiered in February 2000.[10]
