This challenge about sharing the Christian message to loved ones before it's too late was the hardest song for frontman Mark Hall to write on the Thrive album. "It's a big, upbeat rockin' song about a person realizing that they've been a really cruddy friend because they haven't shared the truth with the person closest to them," he explained. "People say, 'I want to share the gospel, but I don't want to ruin my friendship.' What you are really saying is I love my friendship more than I love my friend. It's tough, but it's truth."
Will.I.am, literally dreamt up "I Gotta Feelin'." Said the Black Eyed Pea: "Have you ever had a dream where there's a melody in your dream? I'll wake up out of my sleep and record that! 'I Gotta Feelin' was one of those songs."
