What parents need to know

Parents need to know that "Good Feeling" is a clean, positive rap tune about staying focused on all the good things in life and working hard to make your dreams come true. There's no profanity or mature content whatsoever, and the song only briefly mentions material goods (for example, fancy vehicles). The track is a great choice for tweens who love rap.

Decent song

This song has zero profanitys or sexual content. While it is a little materialistic it is a clean song.

What's the story?

In "GOOD FEELING," the first single from his fourth album, Only One Rida (Part 2), rapper Flo Rida talks about seeing all the good things in life and trying hard to turn a vision into reality. The song's lyrics are overwhelmingly positive: "Giving up's not an option, gotta get it in / Witness, I got the heart of 20 men ... I know you got the good feelin' / Let's get it, let's get it, gotta love the life that we livin'."

Is it any good?

Any artist who samples legendary R&B singer Etta James deserves big props. Flo Rida's choice to include a line from James' powerful song "Something's Got a Hold On Me" pays off here, adding a cool vibe to an already exceptional track.
