David Guetta wishes he had got the chance to work with Michael Jackson.

The super-DJ has worked with many of the biggest names in pop, including Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Kelly Rowland, Snoop Dogg and Usher, but he admits his dream collaboration would have been with the late King of Pop, who died in June 2009.

Guetta said: ''It would have been awesome to work with Michael Jackson, but therefore it's too late now.''

The 46-year-old producer is one of the most successful DJs in the world and is wanted by the globe's top pop stars to create hits for them.

Guetta insists the reason he is so successful is because he works hard in the studio and tours constantly.

When asked what the secret of his success is, the 'Titanium' hitmaker said: ''To be honest I think the whole work ethic is the secret of my success. If you ask me what is the secret behind my hits (songs), I have to say I have no idea. At the moment I work on my new album and tear my hair out, because I can't reckon, If a song is going to be a hit or not. It's crazy that people think I would have a recipe, but I haven't. Live would be so much easier with a recipe like that.''
