The salient points

  • David Guetta is, as the surname suggests, French.
  • For most of the 1990s, Guetta was just a pretty popular DJ, and in 2002 he released his debut album  to a generally nonplussed public.
  • His second album 'Guetta Blaster' (ahem) was released in 2004 and featured the Stereo MCs. It also featured a brilliant song called 'Love Don't Let Me Go'.
  • Just when it seemed like poor David Guetta was destined to be just another multimillionaire DJ, he released the incredible 'When Love Takes Over' and became the globe-straddling pop behemoth we know and love today.
  • By producing Black Eyed Peas' 'I Gotta Feeling', Guetta inadvertently opened the floodgates on the whole 'dancing in a club, getting down on the floor' thing. He's since milked it for all it's worth.
  • 2011's 'Nothing But The Beat' album featured collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Jessie J, Timbaland, Sia, Taio Cruz and the man who came in to fix the broken light switch during the third day of recording.
  • The law of averages, combined with Guetta's extraordinary volume of output, dictates that every twelve months David Guetta is involved in or responsible for precisely two amazing songs.
