"So Good to Me" is a song by American DJ and record producer Chris Malinchak. It was released in the United Kingdom on 5 May 2013 by Ministry of Sound.[1] The song samples "If This World Were Mine" (1967) by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.[2]

"So Good to Me" debuted and peaked at number two in the United Kingdom, failing to prevent "Get Lucky" by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams from spending a third week at the top of the UK Singles Chart.[3] It also peaked at number four in Belgium and the Republic of Ireland and number seven in the Netherlands.

Critical reception[edit]

Lewis Corner of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

We're living in an age where social media-fuelled fan bases can propel rising YouTube stars as well as established artists to the top of the charts. However, every now and then an act slowly creeps up on the mainstream with their talent alone, and such is the case with Chris Malinchak. After winning over fans from gig to gig, the New York-based DJ is heading to the upper echelons of the chart following his signing to Ministry of Sound. He joins a wave of new mellowed-out house music that serves as an antidote to the sugary synth-led bangers of recent years. Gentle hi-hat, sunset riffs and soft coos underlie summer love lyrics: "You've been so good to me/ Give you anything/ You've been so good to me/ Your love inside me." The result is a masterclass in restrained euphoria, proving that when it comes to Chris Malinchak, less really is more. 4/5 stars.[4]
