The French producer and the Australian singer first struck sonic gold almost a decade in the past, with their monumental and era-defining smash “Titanium,” which fused Guetta’s digital manufacturing with Sia’s indestructible pop vocals. Though Guetta initially provided the tune to Katy Perry, this previous July Perry revealed that she turned it down as a result of the vocalist on the demo, Sia, was so rattling good.
The world agreed, with the monitor turning into Sia’s highest charting tune on the time and “Titanium” spending 13 weeks on the Sizzling 100, the place it peaked at No. 7.

Created fully on-line by Guetta and Sia, the tune was made in tribute to the key cultural challenges that residents of Earth are at the moment dealing with.
In celebration of the tune right here Guetta — in his personal phrases — shares the behind the scenes tales of his many Sia collabs.
Humorous factor is that the concept was to place one other artist on the report, as a result of Sia did not wish to be within the highlight any extra. However what she delivered was simply so wonderful, I begged her to let me hold her voice. “Titanium” is now the biggest-selling report of my profession, and it actually modified my life — and Sia’s life too.

Lower than a 12 months after releasing “Titanium” and “Wild One Two,” we teamed up once more and launched “She Wolf.” Enjoyable truth is that “She Wolf” was created beneath related circumstances as “Titanium.” Sia initially wrote the lyrics for an additional artist, however I personally assume Sia’s voice is simply magic, and it wouldn’t be the identical tune with another person, so we agreed on releasing it together with her voice.
“The Whisperer” (2014)

There’s been a lot miserable music currently. And on prime of that, with every little thing that occurred, I actually wished to encourage the world and only a make a really feel good tune. So, I referred to as Sia, and we wrote this tune on-line. It was first a ballad after which it turned this unimaginable ’80s, loopy report. And I’m tremendous, tremendous blissful about it. I hope you find it irresistible as a lot as we do.
