Drake Takes Aim at David Guetta & Pitbull, Says Music ‘Just Doesn’t Work’

Drake isn’t fond of the kind of dance music that David Guetta creates. The Toronto native doesn’t like Pitbull‘s catalog of recent dance floor ditties either. He recently opened up about the prospect of creating music for the genre but insisted his work has ”integrity and soul,” which would be watered down by working with an artist like Guetta.

“For me, the David Guetta stuff just doesn’t work,” Drake told NME magazine. “I don’t really wanna go there. There’s other artists, that’s their sound.”

Surely those “other artists” include his Young Money sister Nicki Minaj, whose collaborated with the French DJ on two tracks: “Where Them Girls At” and “Turn Me On.” Though Drake never mentions Minaj, apparently she’s included in the roundup.

“They feel in order to thrive internationally that they gotta do straightforward, four on the flour, David Guetta, Pitbull music,” the 25-year-old Take Care rapper stated. ”For me, I’d rather go to somebody like [producer] Jamie xx and tell him, ‘Look, I really wanna turn the club upside down, but I wanna do it with integrity, with soul.”’

The “Headlines” rhymer is currently hitting stadiums on his Club Paradise tour. This week, he’s in the U.K. at the Capital FM Arena and beginning May 7, he’ll grace the stage in Concord, Calif., at the Sleep Train Pavilion. For details on tour dates, visit here.
