David Guetta Says Timbaland and Rihanna Collaboration Lacked Balls

David Guetta Says Timbaland and Rihanna Collaboration Lacked Balls was a top story in May/June. Here is the recap: Beatportal has an interesting new interview with David Guetta where he calls out Timbaland and Rihanna's collaboration for lacking balls. Here is that part of the exchange: A lot of pop and hip-hop artists are working with electronic producers these days. Why do you think there's so much crossover right now?

I don't want to sound conceited, but I think it's very much because we did it with the Black Eyed Peas, and I did it with Akon and with Kelly Rowlandówe're talking about some of the biggest selling records ever. American people are very simple, they go for what's number one, and they want to do the same thing. I'm not saying I'm the only one, because for example, there was that Crookers remix of Kid that was really influential, but that record wasn't successful in America, it was successful in Europe. It did influence me, for sure.

There were some little signs. Like what Timbaland was doing, and Rihanna, but they were being shy, they didn't have the balls to go 100%. What I respect in Will.I.Am for calling me, he was like, "We're not going to try to emulate that sound, we're just going to do it". - Read the full interview here
