[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” admin_preview_bg=”] David Guetta has partnered with Justin Bieber to create and release a new single which comes at the perfect time to be in the running for the big summer dance tune that so far seems to be missing from the top 40 world.
Released via Parlaphone/Warner Music France and entitled “2U,” the track is likely set to be featured on an upcoming album coming from the DJ and producer, though there hasn’t yet been any word on when that may arrive (or even be properly announced).
Justin Bieber has been on an incredible winning streak when it comes to dance features, and there is no reason to believe this latest effort won’t be at least something of a success story. His forays into dance as a featured guest started back in 2015, when he worked with super producers Diplo and Skrillex (who were operating together under the name Jack Ü at the time) for the song “Where Are Ü Now.” The single went on to break into the top 10 and it won all three musicians a Grammy, giving Justin Bieber his first award.
After that success, Justin Bieber quickly became one of the most sought-after guest stars for dance-pop, and he has been able to churn out hit after hit. In 2016, he scored a pair of worldwide top 10 hits with Major Lazer’s “Cold Water” and DJ Snake’s “Let Me Love You,” both of which show how far dance has permeated into the mainstream.
According to Forbes, aside from dance, Justin Bieber has scored a pair of No. 1 hits in the U.S. in just the past month or so as a featured vocalist on both DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito,” the latter of which is still on top of the Hot 100.
David Guetta has been busy releasing a steady stream of new tracks over the past few months, though it’s not clear which ones will end up on a new album and which ones will be relegated to one-off single status. In 2017 alone, the French producer has dropped a pair of could-have-been massive tunes, though neither of them lived up to their potential on the charts, at least not here in the United States.
The first piece released was “Light My Body Up,” which featured Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. David Guetta followed that up with a track featuring fellow electronic producer Afrojack and vocalist and songwriter Ester Dean. Neither one made it to the Hot 100, though both were celebrated in the dance world.
