“do you get this feeling?” follows themes of love and fantasy found in Hamid J’s previously-released songs. The track, which is the first single off his upcoming full-length debut album, cycle of a relationship, delves into the vulnerability of opening up in a budding relationship. Hamid J credits the song’s narrative to his own experiences with love, especially in the first stages of captivation when wondering whether the other feels the same. “You hope and pray that the feelings and emotions that are rocking your world are mutual,” he reflects. “So you ask them the scary question beating in your heart: do you get this feeling?” Inspired by artists like Elton John, George Michael, and Dua Lipa, the song combines an ‘80s-style bassline with unapologetic lyrics, “I know we just met tonight” and “I’m a victim of your love gun,” that have audiences singing along.
