That Feeling

Album: From Day 1 (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Travis Porter's Quez explained to The Boombox the feeling that they're rapping about on this joint: "You know, that feeling like a football player that's going to the Super Bowl," he said. "A basketball player going to the playoffs. A baseball player just hit a grand slam! You just smoked weed for the first time in your life. That feeling. You know what I'm sayin', it's crazy. You know how you get butterflies, but it's butterflies plus adrenaline. That feeling's crazy."
  • The song features a vocal contribution by Mike Posner of "Cooler Than Me" fame. "Mike Posner is the man," commented Quez to The Boombox. He added: "That's a homie, but he's kinda weird, like the way he records. He puts his mic in front of the board and then sits and records himself in front of the computer, just records himself."
  • The J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League manned the boards on this track. The production trio comprises Rook, Colione, and Kenny "Barto" Bartolomei and other artists they've worked with include Mary J. Blige and Rick Ross. Quez recalled to The Boombox: "They actually came to the studio, brought some beats and played some stuff, and came out with a crazy hit."
