If you haven’t already heard David Guetta’s newly released single "Where Them Girls At" featuring Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj, you’ve been missing out. The song has become an instant hit after being released online earlier this month. In a recent XXL Magazine interview, the three artists talk about coming together for the single, talk about their admiration for one another, and talk about the up-beat electro crossover in recent hip-hop
XXLMag.com: You’ve been leaving your mark on urban music lately. What’s your background in hip-hop and how long have you’ve been into it?
David Guetta: Well, actually I’ve been a hip-hop DJ, but that was like 20 years ago. And then I’ve been doing electro and house music and dance pretty much all my life. But I always liked hip-hop and always been a fan of the music… I’ve had the opportunity to try to mix them both together. That’s really want I wanted to do with my last album — to mix the electronic culture from Europe with urban culture from America… I’m really happy because, when I was DJing, it was feeling like it was two communities that were almost enemies. I would DJ and play electronic music and then sometimes I would listen to some hip-hop at home, but it was really impossible to imagine that the urban sound would be heard so much. And I think it’s wonderful that everybody is together. Doesn’t matter if you’re Black or White or where you’re coming from — people just want to have a good time and party and dance.
