David Guetta has unveiled two huge new remixes from Joel Corry and Cedric Gervais for his latest smash hit single ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’, featuring fellow global superstars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray.
With the original sitting at #13 in the UK chart with 135 million global streams and 13 million UK streams to date, David Guetta adds remixes from Joel Corry and Cedric Gervais to the recent ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’ reworks by Hypaton, Borai & Denham, and DJs from Mars, which were featured in Guetta’s recent Remixes EP.
Joel Corry is no stranger to dance-pop hits – with five top 10 singles himself, over 4.1 billion streams, five Brit nominations, 5 x platinum records and 9 consecutive #1 records at US dance radio, the man is a force to be reckoned with and this heater of a remix will only add to his past collaborations with the likes of Tom Grennan, Charli XCX, Jax Jones, RAYE and more. Joel is busy with DJ residencies in Ibiza and Las Vegas in addition to 2023 festival appearances including BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend, Creamfields, NASS Festival, Tomorrowland, Summerburst Festival & more.
Revered producer Cedric Gervais adds his own signature Grammy-winning electro style to ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’. Since releasing a variety of acclaimed hits such as ‘Would I Lie To You’, ‘Say My Name’ and ‘Everybody Dance’ which have amassed over 200 million Spotify streams, the talented artist has gone onto working with the likes of Niles Rodgers, Lenny Kravitz, Deep Dish, Steve Lawler and Rachel Star. Gervais also won a Grammy for ‘Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical’ for his remix of the Lana del Rey smash ‘Summertime Sadness’, which now has over half a billion streams.
The original single, a euphoric gem which combines Guetta’s mastermind production with a sample from Haddaway’s 90s hit ‘What Is Love’, has become a worldwide hit, sitting at #13 in the UK chart, with 135 million global streams and 13 million UK streams to date, as well as having peaks of #12 in Global Shazam and #3 on UK iTunes, and hitting the Spotify Top 20 across 10 markets. On radio, the track has reached playlists on Capital, Kiss (+Kiss Dance), Hits Radio and was chosen as Radio 1’s Track Of The Week.
‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’ features vocals from British pop icon Anne-Marie, who continues to take the world by storm with 7.5 billion global streams to date, seven Top 10 singles and multiple double- and triple-platinum selling records, and Coi Leray, the LA-based rapper known for her raw rhymes, traffic-stopping vocals and inimitable energy. Leray is best known for her recent smash single ‘Players’, which has 200 million streams, reached #1 at Rhythmic radio in the US, and received a remix by David Guetta, which the two performed together in his Ultra Miami earlier this year.
Fast approaching 40 billion global streams in addition to this year’s ‘Producer of the Year’ win at the BRITs and DJ Mag’s #1 DJ for the third year running, David Guetta has skyrocketed to #9 most streamed artist on Spotify globally, selling over 50 million records worldwide. In his career he has reached top position across I-Tunes charts over 113 countries and achieving over 24 million Spotify followers worldwide. His previous single ‘I’m Good (Blue)’ hit #1 on the UK Singles chart, #2 on Global Spotify, #1 on Spotify UK, #1 on Apple UK, #1 on Amazon Music UK, #2 on UK Shazam, #3 on Global Shazam, as well as #1 in 15 territories including Australia, Denmark, Switzerland, Norway and Finland.
Earlier this year, the international icon won the ‘Dance Song of The Year’ award for his latest smash ‘I’m Good’ at the IHeartRadio Music Awards, where he was also previously named ‘Dance Act of the Year’. He also recently received awards for ‘DJ of the Year’ at the NRJ Music Awards, Producer of the Year at the Brits and #1 Producer by 1001Tracklists, continuing to cement his status at the very top of the DJ pile.
