This is the lead single from American R&B singer Jeremih's second album, All About You. The song features rapper Ludacris and was produced by Mick Schultz, who was also responsible for Jeremih's self-titled debut record.
Jeremih told MTV News why he and the head of his record label agreed that this song should be the first offering from All About You: "'I Like' was a record that was actually chosen by L.A. Reid himself," he explained. "It was a record that I hoped when people heard it for the first time, with me being gone for at least a small period of time over the past year, I wanted them to know exactly who it was when they heard it. I think it was definitely that record. When they heard it, it would be, 'OK, that's Jeremih. It sounds like Jeremih; it sounds like something he would do.' So that was the hope for that record and so far, so good."
Eddie Vedder often changes the words when he sings "Yellow Ledbetter." The basic story is about a guy whose brother dies in the first Gulf War. Apparently, bad news in the army is given in yellow envelopes.
