"I Like How It Feels" is a song by Spanish recording artist Enrique Iglesias. The song was originally intended to be the lead single from a reissue of Iglesias' album Euphoria, however, the release was cancelled after poor chart performance from the song. It will now be held over for the release of Iglesias' tenth studio album, TBA. The song also features guest appearance from Cuban rapper Pitbull and producers The WAV.s. It is produced by Enrique's longtime collaborator RedOne. It is the third collaboration between Enrique and Pitbull following "I Like It" and Pitbull's song "Come 'n' Go" off his latest album, Planet Pit. The song was released as a digital download in Australia and some European countries on September 23, 2011. The song was released as a digital download in the United States on October 4, 2011. Background: "I Like How It Feels" is produced by RedOne whose has worked with Enrique previously to produce hits like Takin' Back My Love, I Like It & Dirty Dancer. The song was leaked on the Internet on September 8, 2011 after which it was uploaded to YouTube on September 10, 2011. The video has now received more than 16 million views. The video was directed by Enrique Iglesias. The song was released in some European countries in iTunes on September 23, 2011, and in the US and Canada on October 4, 2011. Critical reception: The single generally received positive reviews. Amy Sciarretto from Popcrush gave 3.5 stars (out of 5) and said, "It's a simple set of lyrical declarations that celebrate being upbeat and enjoying life. There's a fair amount of studio treatment on the song, but that's a given with any epic, expansive pop song in 2011. We wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a staple at NFL stadiums this fall and winter, too." Meena Rupani from Desihits said," The upbeat track is sure to be on repeat just like their other collaboration tracks have been. It seems Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull can do no wrong when they come together on a song." Robbie Daw from Idolator said,"Enrique's new RedOne-produced song has all the musical makings of an anthem, while the singer himself actually packs more of a soulful, emotional punch with his vocals than we've heard on recent singles like "Dirty Dancer," "I Like It" and "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)." Lewis Corner from Digital Spy gave the song 4 stars (out of 5) saying, "Enrique continues to channel the au courrant synths and chunky Euro beats combo that has kept him afloat over the past year. "It's my time, it's my life, I can do what I like/ For the price of a smile, I gotta take it to right," he certifies over a carnival cabaret of Rio de Janeiro proportions - and with another chart-friendly anthem under his belt, he certainly has reason to celebrate." Chart performance: On the week of September 29, 2011 the song debuted at number 97 on the Canadian Hot 100 chart. It marks Enrique's 8th entry on this chart. It later peaked to #11 on the chart.
