Following a year of smash hit after smash hit, superstar DJ and producer, David Guetta is back with his hotly anticipated new single ‘Big FU’ with Afropop sensation Ayra Starr and Chicago rap star Lil Durk.
A refreshing change of pace after a string of dance floor anthems, ‘Big FU‘ shows an unexpected, house-influenced side to David Guetta‘s production skills, with the French mastermind crafting a slick groove around an infectious funk bassline.
Ayra Starr‘s powerful reverb-soaked vocals provide the unforgettable hook: “Big Fuck You to my replacement / I see you’re someone else’s favourite”. Melodic synth stabs and razor-sharp verses from Lil Durk complete the mix, resulting in a smooth and beautifully produced banger. The bold, eye-popping artwork for the single is provided by critically acclaimed French street artist and previous Guetta collaborator, Mr Brainwash.
The hits keep on coming for David Guetta. Earlier this year he also conquered the global airwaves with the megahit ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me‘ featuring the two pop megastars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray. It arrived as the hotly anticipated follow-up to Spotify global #1 and streaming monster, ‘I’m Good (Blue)‘. The track earned Guetta his eleventh Grammy nomination, receiving a nod for ‘Best Dance/Electronic Recording’, has garnered 2.2 billion global streams, charted at #1 on the official charts across 11 markets, and peaked at #1 at US Top 40 & US Dance Radio charts.
Guetta hasn’t stopped there. Just last month he released his Zara Larsson collaboration ‘On My Love‘, already fast approaching 20 million streams, while earlier in the summer there were singles with MORTEN, Bebe Rexha, Shouse and more. Not to mention his remix work: in 2023 alone, he’s released smash reworks of cassö, RAYE and D-Block Europe‘s ‘Prada‘ with Hypaton, and Tony Touch‘s ‘Apaga La Luz‘ to name just a couple. ‘Big FU‘ is reminiscent of previous hits ‘Drive‘ with Black Coffee and ‘Memories‘ with Kid Cudi, well-loved features of his back catalogue.
