Artistfacts for David Guetta

  • David Guetta, often referred to as the man who brought dance music to American mainstream radio, got his big break when Kelly Rowland saw him DJ in Cannes, France. They got together and recorded "When Love Takes Over," and from there, Guetta's career took off as Rowland helped spread the word.
  • "I Gotta Feelin'," by the Black Eyed Peas samples Guetta's "Love Is Gone."
  • When The Sun asked him what he likes to do in his free time, Guetta answered, "This is going to sound crazy but my hobby is music, that's what I do to relax. I'm a DJ so when I relax, I make tracks!"
  • He started pursuing his career as a teenager, playing records in his bedroom after school. He started organizing parties in his basement when he was 15, charging £1 to get in.
  • Guetta summed up his life to Billboard magazine in a 2013 interview as: "I make beats, eat, make beats, play beats, sleep, fly, then repeat. Doesn't matter if it's Vegas, China, Ibiza, wherever. That's my life. That's my indulgence. Making beats. Making people dance."
