While he is in his fifties, David Guetta is not ready to retire. Indeed, the French DJ superstar has just unveiled his 7th studio album. Soberly titled “7”, this album is more than consistent since divided into two parts, a first more pop and the second focusing on its underground alias “Jack Back“. There are no less than 27 tracks in total that make up this new “David Guetta 7 album”.
On the first part of the David Guetta 7 album, we find the following singles already released: 2U with Justin Bieber, Like I Do, Goodbye, Flames, Do not Leave Me Alone and finally his surprising collaboration with Black Coffee “Drive“, which you can find on our site. Let’s have a look at the 9 unpublished tracks we have to discover.
David Guetta 7 album Part 1: The unpublished 9
And the least we can say is that the result is eclectic and varied, as David continues to innovate and to surround himself well. We find Lil Uzi Vert and G-Eazy on Motto for a very traplike track, highlighting well the flows of the two rappers.
Moreover, we also have a follow-up of Hey Mama on the excellent “She Knows How To Love Me” and his jazzy breaks.
We also note a collaboration with J Balvin who flirts with the moombathon and has a strong potential as the tube “Let It Be Me” inspired by Tom’s Diner by American folk-inspired musician Suzanne Vega, already sampled by the Dutch Electro House duo Bingo Players a few years ago.
Overall the result is in line with the expectations that could be seen at the sight of the trend that follows the Frenchy for some time: namely, big featurings, a more pop / Future Bass orientation (the most chill Battle & Light Headed testify in addition to Flames, Do not Leave Me Alone …) some more electro tracks to alternate: Like I Do, Drive and “I’m That Bitch” which flirts with the bass house. Everything is sufficiently diversified and engaging for everyone to find happiness and demonstrates the ability of David Guetta to renew and follow trends successfully.
David Guetta 7 album Part 2: Jack Back
But the big surprise of this album comes from this second CD under the alias Jack Back that you could discover a week ago since the album was released in mixtape on Spotify. The result is more than excellent, we discover an unknown facet of the French producer and a return to the sources for him.
The 12 tracks of the album move away completely from the pop side of the first CD and take us into a dark and percussive universe while remaining groovy. “Overtone” had set the tone but the rest of the album is of the same ilk and dotted with tributes. The voice of “Grenade” is reminiscent of the house of the 2000s including the famous The Future and the presence of CeCe Rogers on “Freedom” and this remix of the classic “Just A Little More Love”.
