The grammy nominated artist explained that his set was rather free form and his incorporation of ‘Flames‘ really helped with its sound – Guetta described the track use in his set saying, “It’s [just] so vibey, and the beat is really funky, and I like it a lot.” Guetta goes on to speak about his relationship with Sia as well saying, “She was always here for me…She is like a loyal friend, especially in this industry, they tend to forget people easily.” He even reflects back on the duo’s early days after their 2011 hit track ‘Titanium‘ exclaiming,

“‘Titanium‘ changed both our lives and has also changed probably dance music and pop music too…It is career-defining for the both of us.”
