David Guetta Explains Why Nicki Minaj and Sia Delayed His Album

David Guetta

M3 host Gaby Henderson recently sat down with famed French DJ David Guetta to chat about his latest album Listen, which was released this past November. After six million album sales and 15 million single sales worldwide, Guetta admitted that being a DJ has some serious perks, like never having to grow up.

“I just realized not a long time ago that I wasn‚Äôt 17 anymore,” laughs Guetta when Henderson mentions a cartoon he posted on his Instagram page about a child wanting to be a DJ. Not growing up has paid off well for Guetta, whose latest album features guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Sia, Emeli Sande, Birdy, and many more.

Guetta admits that his perfectionist tendencies combined with the same personality trait of artists like Minaj and Sia led to the Listen album being pushed back a number of times. “I cancelled the album so many times but every time was for a great reason.”
