If you had a few “L’Chaims” this weekend while dancing in the clubs of downtown Minneapolis, I’m sure your DJs played the song “I got a feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. How cool is it that the song has the words “Mazal Tov” and ‘L’Chaim” in its chorus? Have you ever heard a song on the Top 10 in the U.S. quoting Hebrew?
For those of you who have not yet heard the song, check it out here:

No need to wonder who decided to include those Hebrew words; Jewliciousdid the research. Producer and co-writer of the track is David Guetta, a French Jew.
