Favorite David Guetta Song – Readers Poll
Happy birthday, David Guetta! The French turntable master turns 45 today, and in celebration of his birth, we want to know what your favorite David Guetta song is.
Since the early 2000s, Guetta has been recruiting amazing artists like Nicki Minaj, Sia, Chris Brown and Rihanna to sing over his high-energy house beats, but which Guetta track has earned a special place on your party playlist?
Although he’s just become a household name over the past few years, David Guetta’s been at it since the mid-’80s, and in 2002, he was able to make his breakthrough overseas with his Chris Willis-featured single ‘Love Don’t Let Me Go.’ Willis, a long-time collaborator of Guetta’s, also sings on ‘Love Is Gone,’ another pulse-pounding radio success from the dancey DJ. A string of hits followed, including ‘Baby When the Light’ (featuring Cozi), ‘When Love Takes Over’ (featuring Kelly Rowland), and of course, the inescapable ‘Sexy B—-‘ (featuring Akon).
But that’s just the start of it. Over the past few years, Guetta’s discography has grown more and more impressive, from landing huge features to just improving upon his already stellar sound. In 2010, Guetta dropped ‘Memories’ with Kid Cudi, as well as the massive dance floor anthem ‘Gettin’ Over You’ with Fergie, LMFAO and Chris Willis. Then he teamed up with Bajan beauty Rihanna for ‘Who’s That Chick?,’ a vivacious and colorful track which would be his last single off of ‘One Love.’
In 2011, Guetta’s ‘Nothing but the Beat’ album impacted, and with it came a pack of party tunes like ‘Where Them Girls At,’ featuring Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj, ‘Little Bad Girl,’ featuring Taio Cruz and Ludacris, and of course, the rousing and incredibly climactic ‘Without You,’ featuring Guetta’s buddy Usher. Before he had Nicki Minaj singing on ‘Turn Me On,’ and before Chris Brown and Lil Wayne assisted on ‘I Can Only Imagine,’ Guetta dropped perhaps his best ‘Nothing but the Beat’ single, ‘Titanium,’ which finds Sia taking the reigns on the vocals. Her voice is absolutely beautiful and hypnotic, and the power in her vocals on ‘Titanium’ and Guetta’s most current single ‘She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)’ are top-notch.
