Bound to go down in history as one of the pioneers of dance music, David Guetta has been one of the key influencers in bringing dance music to the masses. A producer who often receives some unnecessary criticism for collaborating with some of world’s biggest mainstream artists, the Frenchman has catapulted the dance industry into the spotlight in the process of rising to fame. This week marks ten years since the release of his iconic ‘Pop Life’ album, featuring 14 tracks that will take you back to the simpler days of dance music.
The album sees Guetta team up with some of the fellow musicians and vocalist who helped propel his career to new heights from the early days, including Joachim Garraud, Chris Willis, Tara McDonald, and even his often forgotten about collaboration with Steve Angello & Sebastian Ingrosso. The first single to be released from Pop Life was “Love Is Gone“, which became a top 10 hit on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 9, whilst Subsequent singles include “Delirious”, featuring Tara McDonald on vocals, “Tomorrow Can Wait” and “Everytime We Touch“.
With over half a million copies sold worldwide, the album was certainly a contributing factor to the major success that would soon fall upon Guetta, as he continues to represent dance music on the global stage to this very day.
