EXCLUSIVE: David Guetta says he’s sitting on an unreleased KiD CuDi collaboration

David Guetta’s One Love album changed dance music forever

Released in 2009, it paired EDM production with Hip Hop/R&B artists – something that hadn’t really been explored on such a large scale until this point.

In a matter of months David Guetta went from underground dance DJ to international superstar DJ following the release of his fourth studio album.

Containing songs like “Sexy Bitch” with Akon, “When Love Takes Over” with Kelly Rowland, and “Gettin’ Over You” featuring Fergie and LMFAO, one song in particular that garnered much attention and soundtracked summer 2010 for many club goers was the KiD CuDi assisted “Memories”.

With its thumping bassline, hypnotic key arrangement and catchy hook it took over clubs worldwide and further cemented KiD CuDi’s popularity following the release of 2008’s earth shattering “Day ‘n’ Nite”.

We flew out to Ibiza to meet with David Guetta to discuss his upcoming new album 7 and accompany him in the booth at his F*** Me I’m Famous residency at Pacha.

During the interview we got onto the subject of One Love and how next year will be its 10 year anniversary. Remembering how “Memories” came together – it started off with Guetta making a beat on a plane on his way to the video shoot for Black Eyed Peas’ “I Got A Feeling” – he broke down how he first met KiD CuDi, how the track was made, and he exclusively revealed that he and CuDi made two tracks and he’s still sitting on the unreleased second record.

“I still have it, it’s good,” Guetta said after we asked him what happened to the other record. “It’s actually really good. The other one is a performance [record]. It’s crazy because now I’m thinking with everything that’s going on right now in Hip Hop that record is so current right now because it’s really like a punk rock record.”

Telling him that maybe he needs to get in touch with CuDi to ask if he can release it, Guetta smiled and replied:

“I would have to reproduce the record because it was 10 years ago. And it was impressive, I have to say, to see him create. It was really, really good.”
