David Guetta anthem ‘Titanium’ reaches 1 billion YouTube streams

A true legend of the EDM scene, David Guetta has been producing massive hits for almost two decades now, from his early days as an underground artist spinning vinyl on the terrace of Space Ibiza, to his more recent residencies, including BIG, at F**K Me I’m Famous at Pacha. Widely considered as one of the key pioneers in helping dance music to crossover into the mainstream, Guetta’s ‘One Love‘ tracks such as Akon collab ‘Sexy Bitch‘ and Kelly Rowland team-up ‘When Love Takes Over’ were instrumental in EDM establishing a key spot on daytime radio.

But it is perhaps ‘Titanium‘ which is David’s best-known hit, after the anthemic production enjoyed a release as part of his iconic ‘Nothing But The Beat’ album in 2011. Now, almost 8 full years later, ‘Titanium’ has hit the magical figure of 1 billion YouTube streams, becoming the most played Monsieur Guetta track of all time. Blessed with a truly unmistakable vocal from Sia, the track – which later received a huge remix from Alesso – is still a firm festival main-stage favourite to this day. With Guetta recently moving into a more deep-house sound thanks to his Jack Back alias, everybody here at We Rave You would like to congratulate the French superstar on his titanic ‘Titanium‘ success.
