Kicking off the new year in style, David Guetta keeps the hits coming with a massive new BENNETT remix of ‘When We Were Young’, his hit single featuring GRAMMY-winning pop star Kim Petras.

‘When We Were Young’ is fast becoming another smash hit for the French mastermind, with nearly 60 million global streams and 100K TikTok creations. The track is currently charting across 11 different markets on Spotify, breaking into the top 40 in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Luxembourg, as well as charting across 5 markets on Apple Music and 6 markets on Deezer.

Breakthrough German producer BENNETT’s remix proves why he’s causing such a storm in dance music right now. His hard-hitting take on ‘When We Were Young’ adds muscle to the original, with huge snare buildups, a powerful orchestral section and an ingenious rearrangement of Kim Petras’ addictive vocal part. The new remix adds to last week’s industrial, party-rousing version from the Grammy-nominated, globally renowned DJ Steve Aoki and Swedish producer KAAZE.

A futuristic banger that thematically looks to the past, ‘When We Were Young’ is a high BPM stormer crafted around a pitched-up interpolation of Supertramp’s classic ‘The Logical Song’, with Kim Petras providing nostalgic verses about the innocence of youth.

BENNETT, a DJ & producer from Koblenz in southern Germany, has taken the music world by storm with his viral sensation, ‘Vois sur ton chemin (Techno Mix)’, and his ability to ignite dance floors. DJs such as Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Timmy Trumpet, Michelon, LUM!X, Vini Vici, and Michael Armani have taken notice of this newcomer, spinning his track at illustrious festivals like Tomorrowland or clubs like Ushuaia Ibiza.

Early 2024 sees David Guetta picking up where he left off last year. 2023 included the megahit ‘Baby Don’t Hurt Me’ featuring the two pop megastars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray, which followed the Spotify global #1 and streaming monster, ‘I’m Good (Blue)’. The track earned Guetta his eleventh Grammy nomination, receiving a nod for ‘Best Dance/Electronic Recording’, has garnered 2.2 billion global streams, charted at #1 on the official charts across 11 markets, and peaked at #1 at US Top 40 & US Dance Radio charts.
