Titanium - David Guetta feat. Sia Sheet Music



Artist Information:

David Guetta (born November 7th, 1967 in Paris) is a French DJ.

He was the pioneer of French house with “Up & away,” a garage-style track with vocals by Robert Owens released in 1994 – really made a name for himself in the mid-90s as one of the key catalysts of Parisian nightlife by promoting evenings at such renowned Paris hot spots as Folies Pigalle, Queen, Bataclan, Palace and Les Bains, where he invited DJ legends like Little Louie Vega, David Morales, DJ Pierre and Roger Sanchez to join him on the turntables. In 2001, however, he went back to his first love: making music.

Launched by the single “Just A Little More Love,” an electro-funk-house cocktail featuring Chris Willis of the band nashville on vocals, David Guetta’s first album was released by Virgin in June 2002 and went on to sell 250,000 copies. This resounding success carried through in the album’s second, even more devastating single, “Love Don’t Let Me Go,” a track reminiscent of Moroder’s techno-disco style crossed with Depeche Mode’s new-wave sound.

Song Facts:

“Titanium” is a song recorded by French disc jockey (DJ)-music producer David Guetta, featuring vocals by Australian recording artist Sia. Taken from the former’s fifth studio album, Nothing but the Beat, the song was written by Sia Furler, Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort and Afrojack. Production was also handled by Guetta, Tuinfort and Afrojack. “Titanium” was initially released for digital download on August 8, 2011, as the first of three promotional singles from the album. It was later released as the album’s fourth single in December 2011. The song originally featured the vocals of American recording artist Mary J. Blige, whose version of the song leaked online in July 2011. Originally, Katy Perry was offered to feature on the song but turned it down.

“Titanium” is a ballad which draws from the genres of pop, house and urban-dance. The song’s lyrics are about inner strength. Sia’s vocals on “Titanium” received comparisons to those by Fergie and the song was also musically compared to Coldplay’s work. Critics were positive towards the song and noted it as one of the standout tracks from Nothing but the Beat. “Titanium” attained top 10 positions in several major music markets, including Australia, Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States. In the United Kingdom, it peaked at number one, becoming Guetta’s fifth number-one single on the chart and Sia’s first. The song’s accompanying music video premiered on December 21, 2011 but does not feature appearances by Guetta and Sia. Instead, the video focuses on a young boy, played by actor Ryan Lee, with supernatural powers. Guetta has performed the song with Scottish recording artist Emeli Sandé at the 2012 NRJ Music Awards, and at the 2012 Coachella Festival with Sia.
