Spun: David Guetta

By Alicia Ward

David Guetta’s album One Love provides music that is exactly expected of him: repetitive electronic tracks encouraging listeners to grab some glow sticks and dance. These tracks include “The Sound of Letting Go” and “On the Dancefloor,” both of which sound identical to many other tracks on the album, particularly “Gettin’ Over.”

This album does stray briefly from easy-to-follow beats to tap into human emotion, though. The first track on the album “When Love Takes Over” reminds us about the complications of love but also its joys.

One Love does feature some surprisingly mellow tracks, such as the melodic “Memories” featuring Kid Cudi. Guetta collaborated with a number of artists including Akon, Will.I.Am, Kelly Rowland and Estelle. These artists enrich every three minute-plus song, adding an extra depth rarely achieved in these kind of dance albums.
