David Guetta has said that he is “honoured” to have his music played on Eastenders.
The DJ’s collaborative track with Emeli Sande ‘What I Did For Love’ was played during the closing scenes of the soap’s live 30th anniversary episode last Friday. “My music played at the Queen Vic is a great honour,” Guetta told Metro.
Last week’s live EastEnders episodes finally revealed the killer behind Lucy Beale’s murder and concluded with an audience of nearly 10 million people. Since being played on the soap, ‘What I Did For Love’ has risen to Number Four on the iTunes Chart. It was previously outside of the Top 20.
Last summer, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top confirmed that he had recorded an album worth of material with Guetta. The unlikely duo met up for a recording session in Ibiza and laid down 10 completed tracks.
Discussing what went on inside the studio, Gibbons said: “I wanted to know how they did certain things, and of course they were badgering me to bring the guitar to the forefront. They said, ‘Y’know, the only thing missing in dance music is a good guitar player.’ I said, ‘Let’s see if we can bring the two together and make it shake.'”
