DAVID GUETTA/One Love


I was able to spin David Guetta's latest album, One Love, today and it exceeded all of my expectations! This is one corker of a Pop/Techno/House album, well suited for any party-flavored occasion!


I must admit that I was a bit worried when I heard who some of his collaborators were, including Kid Cudi, Estelle, former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland and Hip Hop/R&B star Akon. I was a little worried that Guetta, the famous French DJ/producer, had gone all soft on us and went 'commercial'. Well, not that he wasn't commercial before because his songs are so damn catchy, but I was a little concerned that he was stepping away from his roots and headed in a R&B direction.


After one spin, that is so NOT the case. This is pure, upbeat and exhilarating House music with some damn fine vocalists adding a new twist to Guetta's signature style.


For proof, just check out the videos below. Music this catchy and uplifting is really hard to resist!


Here's the first single, a great Pop tune with Kelly Rowland on vocals:




And here's the brand new single, "Sexy Bitch", featuring Akon. You have a variety of versions to choose from, so definitely choose wisely. Me? I like "Sexy Bitch", but if you are a bit more sensitive, then go with "Sexy Chick" (the same song but more PC lyrically):


One Love is thoroughly entertaining and highly recommended!
