In just over three months David Guetta‘s album ‘One Love‘ has gone Platinum in Canada! Since its #2 Debut here on the Nielsen SoundScan Charts, the much celebrated album has also generated a 4x Platinum Digital Single (“Sexy Bitch/Chick” featuring Akon) and a Platinum Single (“When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland).
Guetta recently had a big night at “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live – Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,” not only did he perform on the live telecast with the Black Eyed Peas, but he picked up five Grammy nominations. This is the first time he has received a nomination. Guetta is nominated in the Album Of The Year and Record Of The Year categories as producer of the Black Eyed Peas monster smash “I Gotta Feeling.” His own album ‘One Love‘ earned an impressive three nominations for Best Dance Electronic Album Of The Year, along with Best Dance Recording and Best Remixed Recording for the album’s first single “When Love Takes Over.”
“I really didn’t expect to receive five Grammy nominations,” said Guetta. “It’s fantastic that the Academy have recognized the impact dance music has had in North America this year. My mission was for this music to be heard by and touch millions. By bringing together the best urban artists and electronic music, I feel the barriers are coming down and we are together.”
Add to this the incredible popularity and success of “Sexy Bitch/Chick” around the world and what a year it has been for Guetta! Here in Canada the song has held the #1 chart position at CHR Radio for eight consecutive weeks and has held the #1 spot on the All Formats Chart since November 1. The video has also reached #1 on the Much Music, MusiquePlus and Much More Music Countdown Charts.
It only seems fitting that Guetta will be back in Canada to end this decade and kick off the new one with two highly anticipated and SOLD OUT DJ shows in Vancouver on December 30 at the Commodore Ballroom (sold out in 40 minutes!) and in Edmonton on January 1 at the Edmonton Event Centre.
