I hate to say it has been a while since I have written about EDM when the song is by David Guetta, but oi, you’ll like what I give you, dammit. “What I Did For Love” features Emeli Sande, noted for her hit “Next To Me”, along with – well, that’s pretty much it.
The song expresses regret and remorse for past actions in relationships but the likely prediction that it will just happen again, like it always does. I do appreciate the truthful subject matter that many fail to recognize, that often rational thinking is just impossible for someone that you have true feelings for. Also, the song is pretty catchy. But of course it is, the beat is by David Guetta.
Overall, I would rate the song at:
Though the song gets a bit yell-y and just over-zealous too early, leading to awkward pacing, I do consider one of the best songs of David Guetta’s recent works and definitely recommend it. You can check out the song below:
