David Guetta: Music Career

David Guetta embarked on a music career when he started DJ-ing in the 1980s. Guetta's debut album, Just a Little More Love was released in 2001 on Virgin Records. Most of the racks featured the American singer Chris Willis on vocals. Another vocalist, Barbara Tucker, sings on the track 'Give Me Something'. The title track from the album was featured on the soundtrack to the film Football Factory, which starred Danny Dyer.

Three years later, David Guetta released his second studio album, Guetta Blaster, also on Virgin Records. Again, Chris Willis featured frequently on vocal duties and Stereo MCs also appeared on the album.

In 2007, Pop Life (the third studio album from David Guetta) was released. The single 'Baby When the Light' featured vocals from Cosi Costi. The lead single from the album, 'Love is Gone', became a Top Ten hit for Guetta in the UK.

A high point of David Guetta's career came in 2009, when his single 'When Love Takes Over' (featuring Kelly Rowland of Destiny's Child) became an international hit. The song was taken from his 2009 album, One Love, which also featured the track 'Sexy B*tch', with Akon on vocals. Other tracks on the album include 'Memories', with Kid Cudi on vocals, the title track 'One Love' and 'Getting' Over You' with Fergie of Black Eyed Peas, LMFAO and long-time collaborator Chris Willis.

Guetta has also collaborated with Madonna, Lil Wayne and Shakira.

David Guetta's label, Gum Productions, collaborated with Apple to create a David Guetta iPhone application which went on to become one of the best-selling music apps in Europe.

In 2010, David Guetta won four Grammy Awards, including Best Dance Recording and best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical, for his track 'When Love Takes Over' with Kelly Rowland.
