David Guetta – Nothing but the Beat (2011)

On the fifth album by French DJ and record producer David Guetta he applied the same formula: combined all the ideas and trendy sounds and stylistic approaches from both, European and American dance scene and pop music, Guetta delivered the best mixture of dance music. This is absolutely classy, clean cut and 100% cash-in formula. Still, we have to admit, Guetta knows to make his products to sound awesome, he construct excellent grooves, simple, but percussive sounds and powerful beats. For the first time, Guetta gave-up on the services of his long-time collaborator Chris Willis on vocals and features collaborations with artists from the R&B, hip hop and pop world such as Lil Wayne, Usher, will.i.am, Akon, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Jennifer Hudson, Timbaland, Afrojack, Jessie J and Sia Furler. An all-star line-up which definitively will help to break down the charts and sell more singles. Well, many people try this and that – as any good ideas, by the way -, but not everybody managed to be successful as Guetta.

And songs such as “Where Them Girls At”, “Turn Me On”, “Little Bad Girl”, “Nothing Really Matters”, “I Can Only Imagine”, “I Just Wanna Fuck”, “Repeat” feels good, definitively makes you dance. And be honest, almost every and each track may be the next single and hit. Some may say, it’s the same track, but those probably never tried to write a song and obviously never have a hit single. And sticking to a winning formula is definitively not a crime. Guetta’s fingerprints were on the Black Eyed Peas’ hypnotic anthem “I Gotta Feeling”, while he also had several number one’s under his own name, Guetta definitively is a brand leader.
Released as a double album, the first disc features the vocal collaborations while the second disc features purely instrumental track.
