For months The Chainsmokers, made up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggar, and country singer Kelsea Ballerini have been teasing a major collaboration. Well, the time has finally come for the artists to share their final product.

After teasing a snippet of the song on social media, the full version of “This Feeling,” is finally out. The song has Kelsea, singing to EDM beats, about a certain someone being the love of her life.

“I’ll tell you a story / before it tells itself / I’ll lay out my reasons / you say that I need help / we all got expectations / and sometimes they go wrong / but no one listens to me so I put it in this song,” Kelsea kicks off the song

They tell me think with my head not that thing in my chest / they got their hands at my neck this time / but you’re the one that I want if that’s really so wrong then they don’t know what this feeling is like. And I say yeah, yeah yeah,” she sings in the chorus.

In an interview with Beats 1 Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Kelsea facetimed with the duo from vacation, revealing that she has been a fan of The Chainsmokers for years, covering songs like “Closer” and “Paris”in concert and Youtube videos.

“I’ve literally said for like two years now it’s like my dream collab is to work with these guys,” Kelsea said to Zane. “I love that they write their stuff. They’re songwriters, which I like relate to so much and respect a whole lot. I love their stuff. I’ve covered it for a couple concerts too which is really fun. Last year I was opening for a country band namely Lady Antebellum and I covered “Closer” and then I did an Instagram cover of “Paris”. So yeah super fanning you know.”

The admiration is mutual. Alex also went on to share his feelings about Kelsea’s vibrant personality.

“I feel like you look at her and like you smile like she’s like such a happy person,” Alex said. “We got this video back. The video back for the song and like you just looking at her you’re just like she’s such a cutie.”

The new single is not necessarily a country single, but that doesn’t mean it won’t fit in to the genre as it stands right now.

“I think it’s been really cool because on country radio right now you have Chris Stapleton who’s soul country and then you have a Sam Hunt who is super R&B country and country music’s not just like a traditional sound any more. There are so many different branches of it and I think having these kind of collaborations—people that have that stigma in their head of like ‘Oh its all about the truck,’ their like ‘Oh wait I like this song. That’s a country singer? Wait let me check out more.’ And it kind of opens the doors more, which is kinda sick.”

“THIS SONG IS SO SPECIAL TO US!,” The Chainsmokers posted on Instagram. “THIS FEELING WITH OUR GIRL KELS IS OUT NOW EVERYWHERE .”

“This Feeling” Lyrics:

KELSEA:
I’ll tell you a story
before it tells itself
I’ll lay out my reasons
you say that I need help
we all got expectations
and sometimes they go wrong
but no one listens to me so I put it in this song

CHORUS: They tell me think with my head not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want if that’s really so wrong
Then they don’t know what this feeling is like.
And I say yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah

THE CHAINSMOKERS:
I’ll tell them a story
They’ll sit and nod their heads
I’ll tell you all my secrets
And you tell all your friends
Hold on to your opinions
And stand by what you say
In the end it’s my decision
So it’s my fault when it ends

CHORUS: They tell me think with my head not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want if that’s really so wrong
Then they don’t know what this feeling is like.

I’ll tell you a story
before it tells itself
I’ll lay out my reasons
you say that I need help
we all got expectations
and sometimes they go wrong
but no one listens to me so I put it in this song

They tell me think with my head not that thing in my chest
They got their hands at my neck this time
But you’re the one that I want if that’s really so wrong
Then they don’t know what this feeling is like.

My friends say noooo, noo noo
noooo, noo noo
noooo, noo noo

They don’t know
I say yeah
They don’t know
