Dance producer David Guetta has said he has hired an ex-Pentagon investigator to look into the theft of his new single 'Where Them Girls At'.

The track, which features Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida, was leaked online earlier this week, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to hear it. Speaking to BBC Radio 1's Newsbeat, Guetta said the theft of the song was "a big worry" and that his record label had "hired the guy who works with security for the Pentagon" to track down the leaker.

Guetta added that he had faced problems with hackers in the past, even stating that some had hidden outside the studio he was working at in a car and stolen music via Wi-Fi. "It's really crazy," he said. "I know it sounds like a film but it's the truth. Usually inside a studio there's a Wi-Fi connection so between the engineer and the artist we can send tracks to work. They [the hackers] would be outside in a car."



He also said that he believed it was essential for artists to employ "a real specialist" to protect their music as otherwise they end up having "huge problems."
