Let's Love
by David Guetta (featuring Sia)

Album: yet to be titled (2020)

Songfacts®:

  • This song about two people supporting each other in tough times is a collaboration between David Guetta and Sia. It marks the eighth time the duo have worked together on a Guetta track, following "Titanium," "She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)," "Wild One Two," "The Whisperer," "Bang My Head," "Light Headed," and the most-played song in 2018 on European radio, "Flames."
  • Guetta recorded the dance-pop romp during the COVID pandemic and released it on September 11, 2020. The French DJ said he was inspired to drop energetic, uplifting music during the lockdown that would help people dance away their quarantine blues.

    "I love producing club tracks but at the same time, especially now, I feel like creating 'feel-good' music," he explained. "'Let's Love' is a message of love, hope and bringing people together and once again, Sia has outdone herself on the vocals."
  • Speaking to Fleur East and James Barr on Hits Radio, Guetta recalled the story of the song: "It was in the middle of confinement (lockdown) and everyone was so depressed, and I was watching the news, I was like 'okay I need to stop watching the news.' I texted Sia and said, 'we need to save the world like superheroes! We need to make a happy song.' And because she's such a genius she took my little text message and made a song in 24 hours, it was really crazy."
  • Guetta and Sia wrote the song with:

    Dutch producer Giorgio Tuinfort, who is one of Guetta's go-to collaborators. Their previous hookups include "Titanium," "She Wolf (Falling to Pieces)," "Lovers On The Sun," "This One's For You," and "Say My Name."

    Dutch producer, songwriter, and musician Marcus Van Wattum, who is known for writing and producing songs with Guetta ("Bang My Head") and for Britney Spears ("It Should Be Easy").
