Early Life and Career Beginnings

Pierre David Guetta, born on November 7, 1967, in Paris, France, is a globally renowned DJ, music producer, and songwriter. He began his career in the mid-1980s, initially DJing in local clubs before gaining prominence in the Parisian nightlife scene. By 2001, he established his production company, Gum Productions, and released his debut single "Just a Little More Love," featuring American singer Chris Willis. This single was part of his debut album of the same name, which came out in 2002 through Virgin Records and achieved considerable success with hits like "People Come People Go" and "Love Don’t Let Me Go."

Rise to Fame and Major Successes

Guetta's second studio album, "Guetta Blaster" (2004), continued his success, featuring another collaboration with Chris Willis on the track "Stay." His third album, "Pop Life" (2007), became a significant hit across Europe, with the single "Love is Gone" contributing heavily to its success. By 2009, Guetta was a well-known figure in the global dance music scene, releasing his fourth album, "One Love." This album marked a turning point, featuring international hits such as "When Love Takes Over" (with Kelly Rowland), "Sexy Bitch" (with Akon), and "Memories" (with Kid Cudi).

Continued Success and Innovations

In 2011, Guetta released "Nothing but the Beat," a double album that further cemented his status as a leading figure in EDM. The album included chart-toppers like "Without You" (featuring Usher), "Titanium" (featuring Sia), and "Turn Me On" (featuring Nicki Minaj). His work during this period saw him collaborating with numerous high-profile artists, significantly shaping the EDM genre's evolution and mainstream popularity.

Recent Projects and Achievements

Guetta continued his prolific output with the release of "Listen" in 2014, featuring hits like "Dangerous" and "Hey Mama." His seventh studio album, "7," came out in 2018, showcasing a mix of pop and dance tracks, including "Flames" (with Sia) and "Don't Leave Me Alone" (with Anne-Marie). As of 2021, Guetta has been actively involved in creating new music and performing at major festivals and events worldwide. His remix of the viral track "Man in Finance" with Megan Boni and Billen Ted, released on June 7, 2024, reflects his ongoing influence and relevance in the music industry.

The couple has two children: a son, Tim Elvis Eric Guetta, born in 2004, and a daughter, Angie Guetta, born in 2007.
