David Guetta and Brooks mastermind a crossover hit with ‘Better When You’re Gone’David Guetta

David Guetta is no stranger to crafting EDM-country fusion hits, and the dance star is back for another round with “Better When You’re Gone” featuring Brooks and Loote.

Guetta’s latest single possesses an undeniably folky feel, despite neither the producer nor vocalist coming from the hyper-insular world of country music radio. “Better When You’re Gone” is the second collaboration from Brooks and Guetta, who previously struck gold alongside Martin Garrix with “Like I Do.” Their latest effort figures be another chart-topper, touting the full anatomy of a future dance hit.

Pop-perfect vocals courtesy of Loote bubble up slowly and soon reach a belt-worthy singalong fitting equally in car stereos or a main stage set. Soon the vocal hook is pierced by signature Guetta saw synths, dialing up the energy before landing into an anthemic festival drop. The breakdown sees the vocals return to bring the crowd back down to earth, before one last drop blasts off again into the Guetta-sphere.
