David Guetta releases official UEFA 2016 song, “This One’s For You”
David Guetta was given the honor of producing UEFA Euro Cup’s official song for 2016 and he certainly hasn’t disappointed. The track combines elements from the best of recent and popular sounds whilst establishing dance music as a world dominating genre. Booming pop icon, Zara Larsson contributes to the anthem, truly turning the track into a radio hit. 18 year-old Zara has already topped charts this year with her singles, ‘Never Forget You’ and ‘Lush Life’; we’re expecting a similar result with This One’s For You.
Another major source of contribution to the track were from EDM and football fans; an expected one million people were requested to send personal recordings over to Guetta to achieve the similar powerful vibes you’d expect in a football stadium.
A project of this size undoubtedly draws in controversy. Critics have deemed the track a rip off of Diplo & DJ Snake’s ‘Lean On’, as the choruses of both the scores involve the use of pitched vocal chops with a break-beat rhythm. The track progresses into more instrumental, melodic sounds but we’ll leave the speculation to the critics.
