I Look Good

Album: Yet to be Titled (2009)
  • This song is the major-label debut for Central Texas Southern rapper and singer Chalie Boy, known to his friends and family as Charles Williams.
  • Williams explained the meaning of the song to MTV News: "It's all about style, fashion, swagger. A lot of name-brand clothing, how everybody wanna step out in the club. It makes you wanna move."
  • Williams told MTV News the story of the song: "My engineer came with a track, we were working on a club/radio track. So we could start having a push for the main national level. I was spitting ideas out my head. I said, 'I look good.' He said, 'Let's do that.' When we listened to it a couple of times before we put it out, we said, 'It has a shot to compete with all the other songs out there that were more dance-y.' ['I Look Good'] itself is not a dance song, but that's the way the radio is going."
