Consider will.i.am‘s “Feelin’ Myself” to be his version of Mike WiLL Made It‘s “23.”
The DJ Mustard-produced club anthem, off will.i.am’s re-release of #willpower (out today), features two of the same featured artists as Mike’s cut, Miley Cyrus and Wiz Khalifa. Plus, like “23,” it demands V.I.P-section levels of attention: French Montana compares his table to the bar — that is, it’s littered with bottles. Cyrus raps of twerking when she pleases. Will.i.am himself boasts of getting people to lose their inhibitions, though his beats and a blow job joke at the hook (“She give me IQ, that mean she get ahead”).
Still, “Feelin’ Myself” falls short of feeling timely, given how it arrives after “23″ and name-drops chart hits from months ago, like Drake‘s “Started From The Bottom” and A$AP Rocky‘s “F*cking Problems.” Watch the video up top and weigh in at the comments below.
