Repeat

Album: Nothing But The Beat (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features the vocals of English singer-songwriter Jessie J. Guetta explained to UK newspaper The Sun why it was a stressful time trying to get this track finished. Said the French DJ: "We didn't meet in the studio on this track so it was a case of spending a lot of time on my laptop and emailing each other. The album was finished then I got word from Jessie about this collaboration so I called my label and said, 'Stop everything. The album can't go without this track.'

    But I was in Ibiza, where the internet is bad, so I had to go to the airport lounge to work. I would sit all day in the lounge with my headphones on, looking like a homeless person, finishing the vocal mix on my laptop. Then Jessie would come back asking, 'Can you just change this little thing?' so I'd go home then be back in the airport lounge for another few hours."
