David Guetta Earns First No. 1 Top 40 Hit
Good job, David Guetta! The French DJ’s hit ‘Without You,’ featuring Usher soared to No. 1 on the Top 40 airplay chart last week — and it’s resting comfortably there this week. Considering the ubiquity of his tracks, it’s surprising that this is actually Guetta’s first time in the top chart position.
‘Without You’ has another good chart position on the Billboard Hot 100, where it’s at No. 4. The track is the second platinum single from Guetta’s album Nothing But the Beat, following the Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida-assisted ‘Where Them Girls At’ this summer. ‘Nothing but the Beat’ boasts a Top 5 debut in 12 countries and sold 1.5 million copies to date worldwide. With all that considered, it’s about time he had a No. 1 single!
David Guetta’s been a busy man promoting ‘Nothing but the Beat.’ After performing at the EMAs and opening the 2011 American Music Awards, Guetta has a slew of appearances with Usher lined up, including ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ the ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’ and holiday radio festivals.
The man is everywhere! It’s hard to imagine airwaves without ‘Without You,’ and it’s hard to imagine the awards season without David Guetta.
