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

If I could write you a song,
to make you fall in love.
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used up all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
But you probably wont,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got designer shades, just to hide your face.
And you wear them around,
like you're cooler than me.
And you'll never say hey or remember my name.
It's probably cause,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got your high brow, shoes on your feet.
And you wear them around like it ain't shit.
But you don't know the way that you look.
When your steps make that much noise, shh.

See, I got you all figured out.
You need everyones eyes just to feel seen.
Girl, you're so vain.
You probably think this song is about you.
Don't you? Don't you?

If I could write you a song,
to make you fall in love.
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used up all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
But you probably wont,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got designer shades, just to hide your face.
And you wear them around,
like you're cooler than me.
You never say hey or remember my name.
It's probably cuz,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got your high brows switching your walk.
And you don't even look when you pass by.
But you don't know the way that you look.
When your steps make that much noise, shh.

See, I got you all figured out.
You need everyones eyes just to feel seen.
Girl, you're so vain.
You probably think this song is about you.
Don't you? Don't you?

If I could write you a song,
to make you fall in love.
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used up all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
But you probably wont,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got designer shades just to hide your face.
And you wear them around,
like you're cooler than me.
You never say hey or remember my name.
It's probably cuz,
you think you're cooler than me.

Now don't you dare act like you
don't know, don't know,
knows whats up, knows whats up.
Cause your nose is up.
I'm approaching up, yup.
Like I can't give you winter in the summer,
or summer in the winter,
miami in december.
Trying to look bored in them diors.
She probably is
was acting shallow until she found out
how deep that my pockets is.
Mrs. pre-Madonna, this is your reminder.
That you think you're fine,
but I'm finer.

Cause it sure seems.
You got no doubt.
But we all seem,
we got your head in the clouds.

If I could write you a song,
to make you fall in love.
I would already have you up under my arm.
I used up all my tricks,
I hope that you like this.
But you probably wont,
you think you're cooler than me.

You got designer shades just to hide your face.
And you wear them around,
like you're cooler than me.
You never say hey or remember my name.
It's probably cuz,
you think you're cooler than me.
