(NEW YORK, NY – June 5th, 2009) -- Producer, hit-maker and worldwide ambassador of club culture DAVID GUETTA will premiere the video for his new single “When Love Takes Over” featuring superstar Kelly Rowland today on Yahoo! Music (music.yahoo.com).   The beach party themed video which was shot at Venice Beach, CA on May 19th is the latest video by ground-breaking director Jonas Akerlund (Madonna, Prodigy, U2, Christina Aguilera), who most recently directed Lady GaGa’s epic “Paparazzi” video.  “When Love Takes Over” is the first single from David Guetta’s fourth album, set to be released on August 25th by Astralwerks.

 

“Shooting this video on the beach with Kelly Rowland and Jonas Akerlund was so much fun and really like a big party,” said David Guetta.  “Jonas perfectly captured the essence of the track.”

 

The single which was released last month was unveiled late in March at this year's Winter Music Conference, in front of a massive outdoor Miami Beach crowd.  With its exhilarating pop melody and uplifting, powerful beats supporting a ringing vocal performance of impeccable clarity and rousing emotion by Rowland, “When Love Takes Over” is set to be THE sound of the summer of 2009. The single is currently #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart and has crossed over to top 40 radio with early airplay in major markets such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington DC, Miami, Dallas, Tampa, Detroit and more.  Along with “When Love Takes Over,” Guetta has another collaboration simultaneously racing up the charts, The Black Eyed Peas new single, “I Gotta Feeling.”  Guetta produced the track and makes a cameo appearance in the video.

 

DAVID GUETTA is a name synonymous with the world’s greatest house and dance music, and with the DJ sets and parties that bring that music to life. Since releasing his first pioneering house single “Up 1 Way” in his native Paris, France in 1992, David Guetta has sold over 2 million albums worldwide and over 3.2 million singles. He has been France’s No. 1 club DJ for a decade, and was named the world’s No. 1 House DJ in 2008. He is a fixture year after year in DJ Magazine’s Top 100 DJ’s list, and was also named DJ of the year at London’s House Music Awards.

 

With three chart-topping albums to date (Just a Little More Love, 2002; Guetta Blaster, 2004; Pop Life, 2007), EMI Music will release Guetta’s much-awaited 4th album on August 25th.   Guetta and his wife Cathy are also famed for staging the mega-sized dance parties, F*** Me I’m Famous, for tens of thousands of house, electro, and dance-loving fans from Ibiza to Miami, New York, London, Barcelona and Paris. They have released four club compilation packages with the same name.
