Samen met vriend Big Sean zet Mike Posner in 2008 zijn eerste stappen op het muzikale pad. Met hem maakt hij zijn eerste mixtapes waarmee hij ook de interesse van de industrie weet te wekken. In augustus van 2010 verschijnt zijn debuutalbum 31 Minutes To Takeoff, waarvan Cooler Than Me zijn eerste hit wordt. In de Top 40 staat het nummer 10 weken genoteerd, maar verder dan nummer 23 komt de track niet.


Posner werkte wel aan een tweede album maar kreeg te kampen met een depressie. Hoewel hij blijft optreden verschijnt het album niet. In de zomer van 2015 verschijnt er een EP met vier nummers van Posner met daarop als eerste track I Took A Pill In Ibiza. Het Noorse duo SeeB maakte een remix van de track en leveren hem begin 2016 niet alleen de Alarmschijf op maar ook, vijf-en-een-half jaar na zijn eerste Top 40-hit, zijn eerste nummer 1-notering. De track houdt het tien weken vol op de eerste plaats en groeit uit tot de grootste hit van 2016.


Songtekst

Virginia Woolf and poetry
No one seemed to notice me
Being young was getting so old
Cheap beer and cigarettes
Life was like a movie set
And I seemed to be given no role

But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon' understand
So at age eighteen
I cried to my mother
And she told me: young man

There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
Life is not always a comfortable ride
Everybody's got scars that they hide
And everybody plays the fool sometimes, yeah
Just be as you are

They played me on the radio
And everything was changing, so
I thought I was all the way grown
But I can still remember
In that cold November
When I realized I'm all alone

But in times of trouble
I can turn to my mother
And I know that she gon' understand
So at age twenty-two
I cried to my mother
And she told me: young man

There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
It doesn’t matter if you become some star
Life is better when you open your heart
You don’t always have to act so hard, no
Just be as you are

Be as you are
Be as you are

There are moments when you fall to the ground
But you are stronger than you feel you are now
You don't always have to speak so loud, no
Just be as you are
It doesn't matter if you become some star
Life is better when you open your heart
You don't always have to act so hard, no
Just be as you are (Be as you are)

Be as you are
Be as you are
Be as you are
