7 david guettaIt might be hard to remember now that David Guetta was once so influential that the late-aughts wave of house-flavoured pop music was briefly called “Guetta-pop”. 7 will remind you.

Perfectly sequenced even as a double album (pop collaborations up front, housier cuts in the back), 7 is almost arrogant about its understanding of pop-as-science. Every hook is an earworm, every crescendo is a rush, and it’s a mark of Guetta’s reputation that every guest here sounds energised.

From the aspirational sing-along jams of side one to the down and dirty dancefloor ravers on side two, 7 is the French producer at his very best.

7 is out now via Warner.
