Superstar DJ and producer David Guetta has returned with his seventh studio album, 7, and it arrives as a double record featuring a different side of him from his pop hits. 7 is a star-studded effort featuring the likes of Justin Bieber, Bebe Rexha, Jason Derulo, Sia, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Uzi Vert, among many others.
When he initially announced the release date for the album, Guetta tweeted, "In my career, I never wanted to make that is just credible, I always want to create something INCREDIBLE." The ambitious double album is split into two distinct halves, with one credited to his alter ego Jack Back, under which he makes less pop-oriented dance music.
Explaining the alias, Guetta said, "Since the album represents a full cycle to me I wanted to go back to the beginning of the cycle, where I’m coming from. These are actually the type of records that come more naturally to me than pop, because I’ve done this all my life. I wanted to create something very personal. I get excited by music that is part of a culture and that’s why I wanted to make this. There is no commercial approach to it, I’m doing it for the love of music." Listen to his latest below.
