Guetta’s just announced tour dates all over the U.S., kicking things off November 18th at Opera in Atlanta. The album, a follow up to 2007’s Pop Life hit #1 in Europe and entered the U.S. iTunes album chart at #12. Not too bad for a French DJ, eh? Guetta has hit the mainstream music scene by force in 2009, producing the Black Eyed Peas’ hit single “I Gotta Feeling,” as well as global dance anthem “When Love Takes Over,” featuring vocals by Destiny’s Child’s own Kelly Rowland. In addition to promoting a brand new album, Guetta has been named ambassador and spokes-DJ for DJ Hero, the latest game from the makers of Guitar Hero. HOT!
“I can’t wait to tour in America,” Guetta said. “There’s a real dance culture happening in America right now that I find very exciting.” While the album peaked at 76 here in the U.S., it’s reached Platinum in France and Gold in Canada, South Africa and Belgium. In America, “When Love Takes Over” hit number one on the Billboard Hot Dance & Club Play Chart and second single, “Sexy Bitch” featuring Akon is quickly climbing the dance charts.
Guetta is preparing to film the video for the album’s title track, which will serve as the third single, and features vocals from Brit R&B superstar Estelle. Lots happening in the world of Guetta and I for one am PUMPED about it. He’s a true talent and I’m glad he’s finally getting his North American spotlight. I’ve been enjoying his remixes and original material for quite some time now.
