Background

    “I Gotta Feeling” was written and composed by all the members of The Black Eyed Peas (credited as William Adams, Allan Pineda, Jaime Gomez, Stacy Ferguson) together with French producers David Guetta, Frederick Riesterer, both of who produced the song. will.i.am provided additional synthesizer work to the song. The song was recorded at Square Prod in Paris, France and Metropolis Studios in London, England, United Kingdom. “I Gotta Feeling” is the second single released from The E.N.D. (2009). Interscope Records serviced the song to contemporary hit and rhythmic crossover radios on June 15, 2009 in the United States. In an interview with Annie Reuter of Marie Claire, will.i.am stated that “It’s dedicated to all the party people out there in the world that want to go out and party. Mostly every song on the Black Eyed Peas record is painting a picture of our party life. It was a conscious decision to make this type of record. Times are really hard for a lot of people and you want to give them escape and you want to make them feel good about life, especially at these low points.”

Composition

    “I Gotta Feeling” is an uptempo dance pop song that runs a length of 4:49 (4 minutes and 49 seconds). The song follows in the inspirational dance-pop theme of The E.N.D., being built upon the heavy use of Auto-Tune and futuristic synthesizers while running through a tick-tock rhythm. The song begins with in a restrained fashion then moves in to a throbbing dance beat that changes patterns so that at least one reviewer thought it shifted tempos, although in fact the tempo does not change at all, suggesting the use of a click track in recording. Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times noted the song’s similarities to Five Stairsteps’ song “Ooh Child”, writing that it emulates the song’s “use of a repetitive, warm vocal line to signify a good mood coming on.” According to Jimmy Iovine of the Interscope Geffen A&M label group, the melody was inspired by the U2 song “I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight”: “I sent will.i.am over to the studio to do some remixes on I’ll Go Crazy. He works on them for two weeks, comes back and writes I Gotta Feeling. The chords are U2 chords, 100 per cent. Will even told them.”

Music video

    The official final version was released on June 2 on Dipdive and on June 15 on iTunes. There is both a censored version and an explicit version of the music video and a live performance of the explicit video. The video starts with scenes in Hollywood Blvd. and then showing will.i.am combing his hair and Fergie putting on make-up while wearing lingerie. It also shows Taboo checking his messages on Dipdive and apl.de.ap checking his text messages. Then it cuts to the party as the first verse starts. In the uncensored version, there are some scenes featuring gay and lesbian content — Fergie dances suggestively and makes out with another woman, whilst two female partygoers are seen kissing at the two minute mark. Before these scenes, one of two men making out is shown. The video ends with a large sign with human-sized letters that reads “The E.N.D.” The video is directed by Mikey Mee of Little Minx and features guest appearances by David Guetta, Kid Cudi, Katy Perry, Chantal Jones, members of the indie rock band Gossip, the designer duo Dean and Dan Caten of Dsquared2 and a few well-known personalities of the LGBT community, including Ongina of RuPaul’s Drag Race fame. A video was shown on Disney’s Re-Micks featuring Minnie, Mickey, and all of their friends.
