The track pairs the Chainsmokers’ characteristic synth-pop stomp with a spirited acoustic guitar. Ballerini and Drew Taggart split vocal duties as they sing about following one’s heart, not the advice of friends, when it comes to a fledgling relationship. “They tell me think with my head/ Not that thing in my chest/ Got their hands at my neck this time,” Taggert and Ballerini sing as the chorus builds. “But you’re the one that I want/ If that’s really so wrong/ Then they don’t know what this feeling is like.”
“This Feeling” is the latest in a string of Chainsmokers singles that will reportedly appear on the duo’s next album, Sick Boy. Neither a release date nor a track list have been released, though the group’s recent tracks include “Side Effects,” featuring Emily Warren, “You Owe Me,” “Everybody Hates Me,” “Sick Boy” and “Somebody,” featuring Drew Love.
