Speaking with Artist Direct
, Nathaniel Motte explained how he and his 3OH!3 colleague Sean Foreman penned this song. "I was at my house, and the electrician was wiring some stuff up in my studio," he recalled. "I was in the living room, making sounds to have later for production. I came up with that chord progression, and I thought, 'This is pretty cool!'
We wrote most of the album in Colorado during last December," continued Motte. "Sean came over, and we ended up producing that crazy buildup. It sounded like the Dolby intro that says, 'The audience is now listening…' [Laughs] We built it up into that drop. Sean went up to the mic, and we kept saying funny s--t and laughing through that drop. Eventually, we came up with 'You're Gonna Love This' and we laid that down.
We've always loved a sense of irony and sense of humor overall. I think shouting out your own song and loving it is pretty funny. This song is a bit more on-the-surface than some of the material on the record. It's about having a good time. We can always see the irony in a party situation - whether it's not getting a chick and going home or something else [Laughs]. Sean definitely does more of the lyrical content. He comes from many different backgrounds but most importantly a hip hop and battle background. He's really good at that and interested in clever, punchline writing. He does that really well."
