After performing on "America's Got Talent" — alongside "Where Them Girls At" collaborators [artist id="2583152"]Flo Rida[/artist] and [artist id="3055069"]Nicki Minaj[/artist] — [artist id="1243216"]David Guetta[/artist] is continuing his U.S. album promotion.
The French DJ/producer has a new double-album out called Nothing but the Beat, an effort that continues to forge his crossover path, with one disc bearing blockbuster vocals (Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, Usher, Minaj and Flo, will.i.am and Akon) and another with a selection of dance-music instrumentals meant for his core fanbase and to introduce Guetta's staple sound to his pop fans.
While [artist id="1231569"]Kelly Rowland[/artist] was Guetta's female powerhouse on One Love's "When Love Takes Over," Nothing but the Beat boasts three divas: Minaj belts on "Turn Me On," Australian singer/songwriter Sia mesmerizes on "Titanium," and then there is [artist id="2481017"]Jennifer Hudson[/artist].
On "Night of Your Life," which recalls the vibe of Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)," Hudson sings, "Love me, baby, treat me right/ Make it eternity and not only one night/ If you love me till the end of time/ Then I will promise you the night of your life."
For the French hitmaker, "Night of Your Life" occupies a special place in his catalog, and he revealed to MTV News recently that working with Hudson was a particularly rewarding endeavor.
"I was in the studio with her," Guetta said. "To be honest, I didn't know her so well, but I had heard her voice and I fell in love with it. It's a difficult song. You need a really big voice to be able to perform that song. I was like, 'Whoa!' She obviously has an amazing voice, and I think it was a really interesting exercise for her and for me.
"I always love to take singers and take them out of their boxes, and to come with a dance song with her was really exciting. She is beautiful in every way: as a person, as a singer, as a human being. She delivered like crazy."
Nothing but the Beat is out now.
