About David Guetta

With 2009’s multi-platinum One Love, two-time-Grammy-winning artist/producer/DJ David Guetta cemented his status as a genre-busting hitmaker whose in-your-face fusion of electro and hip-hop beautifully warps the pop landscape. Now, with his fifth studio album Nothing But The Beat, Guetta builds on that breakthrough momentum and takes his decades-spanning career to a frenetic new level marked by bigger hooks and more brain-bending beats. A star- packed powerhouse showcasing today’s hottest hip-hop and R&B artists, Nothing But The Beat backs up its high-gloss pop with ingenious electronic stylings that deftly flaunt Guetta’s DJ pedigree. In a nod to the driving force behind Guetta’s crossover success, the double album (due out August 29) also offers an all-instrumental disc designed to turn new listeners on to the hypnotic sound of house music.

“When I listen to the radio in the U.S., every song sounds like ‘Sexy Bitch,’” says Guetta. “The urban dance thing has become huge. Now I have to push it because my sound has become so popular. It’s a challenge, but I like that.”

That sizable success isn’t nearly limited to Guetta’s work as a recording artist and DJ. In addition to selling more than 5 million albums worldwide since his 2001 debut, Guetta acted as producer on the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” (the highest-selling digital release in music history). Along with his two Grammys (one for his remix of Madonna’sRevolver” in 2011, the other for his remix of One Love’sWhen Love Takes Over“), Guetta took home the Best DJ, Best Producer, and Best-Selling French Artist prizes at the 2010 World Music Awards. And having kicked off his DJ career as a teenager in his native France, Guetta also partners with his wife Cathy on promoting duties for the legendary F*** Me I’m Famous dance parties (held in locations like Ibiza, Miami, New York, and Las Vegas since 1995).

He also wrote, produced, and featured on Rihanna’s seventh studio album, Unapologetic, and acts as the support act for the European leg of her ongoing Diamonds World Tour.

Jack Back Records

Guetta has created a new record label known as Jack Back Records (named after whom he has collaborated with in the song “Wild One Two”), where he intends to focus only on electronic releases. The first release of this new label is his collaboration with Nicky Romero, “Metropolis“, which is also a track from Nothing but the Beat 2.0. Whilst on tour with Rihanna, he debuted his new track at Twickenham Stadium on 15 June 2013. David Guetta stated “Twickenham, I hope you like this new track, it’s brand new and you’re the first people in the world to hear it.” The single, called “Ain’t a Party“, and it was released on July 8, 2013. It is a collaboration between GLOWINTHEDARK and Harrison. Guetta released the artwork for his new single on his Instagram profile on 19 June 2013.

On September 26, 2013, Guetta unveiled the music video for new track “One Voice” featuring indie singer Mikky Ekko. It will be released on November 4 as part of the UN’s humanitarian campaign called The World Needs More.

Guetta cowrote and produced the song “Fashion!” on Lady Gaga’s third studio album Artpop. He also had songwriting and production contributions to Britney Spears‘ eighth studio album Britney Jean. On January 20, 2014, Guetta released the new single “Shot Me Down” featuring American singer Skylar Grey, it is an adaption of the Nancy Sinatra song of the same name. The song is co-produced by Giorgio Tuinfort.

“It doesn’t matter if I make a beat that’s going to be a song on the radio, or if I make a record that’s meant to please DJs,” Guetta says of continuing to bridge the gap between electronic and pop on Nothing But The Beat. “I always just think of making people dance—that’s my first priority.”
