Flames

7 (2018)

This motivational pop tune is a collaboration between David Guetta and Sia. It marks the fourth time the duo have worked together on a Guetta track. While "Flames" doesn't have a huge chorus like Guetta's previous collaboration with Sia, "Titanium," he still finds the song very interesting: He said "It's so vibey, and the beat is really funky, and I like it a lot." In 2018 this was the most-played song of the year on European radio.

Lets Love

Feat. Sia

It marks the eighth time the duo have worked together on a Guetta track. Guetta recorded the dance-pop romp during the COVID pandemic and released it on September 11, 2020.

"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."

Guetta said to MTV News regarding helping Rihanna return to dance music: "Well, you know, I'm a DJ, so I make beats that make you wanna dance.

Lovers On The Sun

Lovers On The Sun (2014)

This summer jam features American singer-songwriter Sam Martin on vocals. This was Guetta's fifth #1 as a lead artist on the UK singles chart.

The multi-instrumentalist also co-wrote the track.

When Love Takes Over

One Love (2009)

This song was the lead single from Guetta's fourth studio album One Love. This features vocals by former Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland. She first came across Guetta at one of the DJs techno shows in Cannes. Rowland later met up with the Frenchman and during their conversation he played her a vocal version of this track. The American singer said that it moved her to tears. She explained: "I felt so much emotion from the track; something happened the first time I heard it, and it was just beautiful." Rowland agreed to take the song to London where she wrote and recorded some vocals.

Sexy Chick

One Love (2009)

This song features R&B singer Akon. Their collaboration came about via a chance encounter, after a gig in the English town of Swindon for BBC Radio 1. Guetta and Akon looked at each other after the set and said, "instead of going out lets hire a studio right now." They went ahead and recorded this turbo-charged track. When this reached #1 on the UK singles chart, Guetta achieved the rare feat of replacing himself at the top position as he co-wrote and is co-produced the previous chart-topper, The Black Peas' "I Gotta Feeling." Guetta also became the first Frenchman to achieve more than one #1 hit in the UK.

Titanium

Nothing But The Beat (2011)

Guetta said about the track: "That song is interesting because it's different from anything else on the album. All of the guests on the album are from pop and R&B, and 'Titanium' is a little bit like a UFO flying over it all because Sia is a more of an indie artist." The song was Guetta's fifth #1 single in the UK, his fourth as lead artist. However, it was Sia's first ever visit to the top spot. Sia wrote the lyric in 40 minutes. She tweeted: "It's amazing that 40 minutes of my life and zero promo turned into my most successful song to date."
