It’s a long weekend up here in Canada so as we remember those who have served to protect our country, let’s fill our cup and toast to them. And what better way to celebrate than with Ludacris, Usher and David Guetta. Luda is preparing to release his new album, Ludaverse with this track serving as it’s official lead-off.
Titled, Rest of My Life, this trio have brought the party with Guetta’s signature dance floor antics with smooth melodies courtesy of Usher and some wicked verses from Luda himself. The song talks about making the most of your life which Ludacris makes very clear is alcohol, weed and money. I’m glad his priorities are in check.
The video showcases Ludacris and Usher performing infront of a backdrop of smoke on a highway while Guetta’s clip see him dancing on a platform in a room by himself with some club lighting. All this is intercut with clips of glaciers, crashing waves, a random basketballer and some people falling in love. While I’m sure the premise of the clip is to “live your life,” the video is a bit random. Thankfully, after a few drinks, the video doesn’t even matter and the song just makes you dance. Check it out below.
It seems like the trend in music for 2012 is to re-release your album with new tracks to try and boost your album sales. Katy Perry did it, Nicki Minaj did it (and is about to do it again) as well as David Guetta who released Nothing But The Beat, 2.0 this summer. The new disc featured tracks from both his collaboration and electronic sides of the first version with a few added tracks. One of them is this little ditty featuring Akon and Ne-Yo which samples some classic Better Off Alone from Alice Deejay.
Right from the get-go, the iconic synth pattern kicks in with Ne-Yo singing, “said a hustlers work is never through. We making it cause we make it move. The only thing we know how to do. Work hard, play hard.” Then, Akon hits the track with his signature island, party boy vocals while the Guetta bass drums pulses the song forward. Give the track a listen below and tell us if you’ll add it to your gym playlist.
Following the success of their smash hit “Titanium,” the talented David Guetta and Sia teamed up for an awesome new music video for their track, “She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)“. As in the “Titanium” video, neither of them are in this video, but the video is both captivating and a bit disturbing regardless.
The video starts off with a naked woman who then morphs into a wolf. The disturbing part is that the wolf is bleeding and injured, while being chased by hunters. Throughout the video, the predators end up getting killed by the beat and at the end,
Shakira the She Wolf turns back into her naked self. I absolutely love this song and I think the video really complimented it well and it was beautifully shot. I’m glad there’s a happy ending.
Check out the video below. The track is from David Guetta’s Nothing But The Beat album. Enjoy!
The new thing in music is to re-release your album. Whether it’s to debut new music or to up sales, it’s become quite the trend in the past few years. Look at Katy Perry her team. They practically wrote the book to help Katy reach some serious sales records. Now it’s DJ and producer David Guetta’s turn to take on the re-release. His last album “Nothing But The Beat” gave us some of the years hottest dance tracks and now, with the help of previous collaborator and haunting vocalist Sia, Guetta is bringing us a new track that has my head bobbing like crazy this afternoon.
Titled “She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)” and not to be confused with a She Wolf of a Shakira nature, the new pulse-pounding track from the French hitmaker is absolutely what you’d expect from Guetta. However, I can’t help but feel this track has more a pop edge than his previous track with Sia. The instrumental after the hook has lighter, less dark synth sound and the piano interludes are absolutely mesmerizing. Give a listen to the extended mix below and share your thoughts in the comments.
David Guetta’s collaboration album “Nothing But The Beat” has proved to be a winner in the hit department. Month after month, Guetta has released singles from the album that make their way to the top of the charts all over the world. His latest release features Chris Brown and Lil Wayne in “I Can Only Imagine” and two days ago, Guetta dropped the video in support of the track.
The super effects driven clip directed by Colin Tilley is definitely eye catching and a concept I could only expect from Guetta. Guetta DJs away while Brown seems to transform from human to robot in a rotating and gravity defying set. Lil Wayne also seems to have some alien-like qualities in his featured moments. While the treatment doesn’t really portray the lyrics of the track, it’s visual is sure to keep you interested. Check out their new video and share your thoughts below.
If you love David Guetta’s “Titanium” featuring Sia, then you’re going to love Jessie J’s new single. While “Laserlight” isn’t much of a departure for Guetta who produced the track, it’s a different sound from what we’ve heard from the British singer. It’s far more club-driven than her previous Top 40 Billboard hits- “Price Tag” and “Domino“. Jessie’s latest single is off the platinum edition of her debut album, “Who You Are“.
Given that Jessie is busy judging the UK version of “The Voice“, I was a little surprised that she made a music video for “Laserlights“. It’s the umpteenth release from her album. It would make sense to prep a single that could serve as a lead cut from her sophomore album. That said, I do like “Laserlights” and think it’s one of the stronger songs on her CD.
I watched the music video a couple of times, but wasn’t able to decipher a discernible storyline. Scenes of her sitting in a dark movie theater and in the backseat of a car are shown during the verses then during the chorus she’s surrounded by a flood of laser lights. Maybe the concept was just to show her looking glamorous while sporting her toned abs. If that’s the case, then mission accomplished. One thing I’m sure about in the clip is she’s still a pitchwoman for vitamin water. The tasty drink is shown on her vanity while’s she’s getting ready. Gotta love product placement.
For a long time, The Grammys didn’t even recognize dance music as a category in their nominations list. In 2003, Electronica and Dance music was finally recognized as a genre by the Grammy’s and now, for the first time ever, the show will perform a tribute to the genre. I personally think it’s very fitting seeing as 75% of the pop music coming out these days has some sort of electronic or house music influence. So how do the Grammy’s plan on honoring this genre?
Idolator reports that during the awards show, the five artists will perform in a tent outside the Staples Center in front of a crowd of 1,000. Grammy show producer Ken Ehrlich describes the performance as the “most ambitious number that we’ve ever done outside the Staples Center.” Joining the tributes performance roster are David Guetta and Deadmau5. Alongside them providing the vocal aspect of dance music will be Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and The Foo Fighters. Ken Ehrlich continues:
“My feeling about dance is it’s such an immersive experience for the participant, that to put it on stage … where the audience is not a part of it … I don’t know, honestly, until we came up with the idea of doing it this way, I don’t know if it ever would have worked.”
If you think that adding the three vocal artists to the dance music genre performance is odd, you’re not alone. The whole internet was a buzz and confused. Thankfully,
PopDust clarified it all for us. Chris Brown and Lil Wayne joined David Guetta on the track “I Can Only Imagine” and Deadmau5 remixed the Foo Fighters’ “Rope. But still, no Robyn or even Skrillex? What do you think about this idea? Check out Guetta’s & Deadmau5′ tracks with these vocalists below.
Channeling Frankenstein’s monster, David Guetta and Nicki Minaj tell quite the story in their new Turn Me On music video. David plays the role of a mad scientist who is creating Nicki, he turns out to be one of his most beautiful creations. Once alive, Minaj takes a stroll through the village and all the others (who are more mannequin-like) don’t approve. Cue the witch-hunt.
While I love that the music video is very effects driven, I feel like they rushed through the storyline and should have extended the song and video to really tell the whole story. However, one of the highlights is when the female mannequins strip off Guetta’s flesh revealing his chainmail body frame. Wow. Guetta’s packing quite the body at 43-years-old. However, as a whole, the teasers made me want more from this video. Check it out below.
