Overview

Strange that right after house and EDM broke, many of its leading names looked outside the genre for inspiration, including David Guetta, who goes singer/songwriter with his 2014 effort Listen. That's singer/songwriter in the vocation sense, not the '70s sense, as big names like John Legend sway the superstar producer toward their own style, which in the case of Legend's title track, "Listen," is elegant and exquisite R&B. In the case of Nicki Minaj, it's sassy and sexy dancefloor business as "Hey Mama" shines with Afrojack on the assist; then there's Emili Sande invoking the spirit of Nina Simone on the moving "What I Did for Love," or Sia going stark on the excellent "The Whisperer." Guetta does the build, break, and drop thing on some cuts, while tastefully keeping other songs EDM free, but his major contribution when it comes to creativity seems to be the inspired Black Eyed Peas and township jive mashing he does on "Lift Me Up" with Nico & Vinz plus Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Otherwise, he seems like a featured artist on his own album, which would be standard issue for other producers turned artist, but not Guetta.

I admit that I’m late to the party of purchasing Listen by David Guetta because I did not buy this cd until January 30th of this year (which was also after hearing his music featured on the radio, Pandora, iheartradio etc). I admit that Dangerous, Lovers On The Sun, and Hey Mama are some of the multiple tracks that I’m enjoying on the Listen compilation right now (I’m not ashamed to admit its partially because I heard these songs also featured on the radio). However, there is something for everybody on this Listen because of the various artists featured on this cd (Sia Ryan Tedder, Emeli Sande, The Script, Bebe Rexha, Magic & Sonny Wilson etc.). I admit that I like the inclusion of his collaborations with other artists on Listen because of his previous tracks which are also collaborations; Who’s That Chick (feat. Rihanna), Turn Me On (feat. Nicki Minaj), Commander and When Love Takes Over (feat. Kelly Rowland), Titanium (feat. Sia), Bad Girl (feat. Taio Cruz and Ludacrais). Listen by David Guetta is perfect for those who like club/dance music feat. various artists.
