Following smash hits ‘I’m Good’ and ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’, David Guetta is back alongside GRAMMY-winning, critically-acclaimed popstar Kim Petras with his hotly anticipated new single ‘When We Were Young’, out on 10th November.
A futuristic banger that thematically looks to the past, ‘When We Were Young’ is a high BPM stormer, incorporating hyperpop influences and classic 90s piano into David Guetta’s peerless sound. “When we were young it seemed that life was so wonderful”, goes the earworm chorus, with Kim Petras providing the nostalgic verses about the innocence of youth. Crafting the track around a pitched-up interpolation of Supertramp’s classic ‘The Logical Song’, the French mastermind is sure to strike gold once again with this new smash collaboration.
The hits never stop for David Guetta. Earlier this year he also conquered the global airwaves with the megahit ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’ featuring the two pop megastars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray. It arrived as the hotly anticipated follow-up to Spotify global #1 and streaming monster, ‘I’m Good (Blue)’. The track earned Guetta his eleventh Grammy nomination, receiving a nod for ‘Best Dance/Electronic Recording’, has garnered 2.2 billion global streams, charted at #1 on the official charts across 11 markets, and peaked at #1 at US Top 40 & US Dance Radio charts. Guetta hasn’t stopped there.
Earlier this month he released ‘Big FU’ with Ayra Starr and Lil Durk, following his September Zara Larsson collaboration ‘On My Love’, already fast approaching 30 million streams, while earlier in the summer there were singles with MORTEN, Bebe Rexha, Shouse and more. Not to mention his remix work: in 2023 alone, he’s released smash reworks of cassö, RAYE and D-Block Europe’s ‘Prada’ with Hypaton, and Tony Touch’s ‘Apaga La Luz’ to name just a couple.
