"I Never Felt So Alive, Like I Do Tonight"

Wait a sec, haven't Akon and Guetta collaborated before? Oh yea I think it was called Sexy Bitch maybe??...yep I think everyone on earth heard that at some point #TwicePlatiumSingle. All kidding aside, a little known fact about that song is that @AKON saw @davidguetta perform in England, approached him about collaborating and they hit it off literally after the concert was over they went to the studio and created Sexy Bitch because Akon had to catch a 6 AM flight. You can't make that kind of stuff up. See interview below...

I've got nothing but respect and admiration for that type of sporadic, live in the moment style collaboration from two open-minded, uniquely talented artists. I say open minded because neither cared that they hadn't really met previously, worked together previously, or even make the same type of music...they both had respect for each other's work and hit it off. It's like a love at first sight, but with music and from that came made beautiful baby named Sexy Bitch out of that energy. Maybe that went a little far...but still, point taken.

Fast forward now to collaboration #2, which is a little tamer than the first, but sort of has that I Got a Feeling vibe to it. Before you jump all over that comparison, I'm not saying it's going to be as big, but in a smaller scale it has that joyous, feel good harmony and calming europop/dance vibe to it. Just a feel good track all around, one that I feel like if I was drunk in a club, would probably go crazy and dance like nobody is lookin'. You know what I'm talkin' bout, you've done it before, it's a comforting feeling of being able to live in the moment and let go, without having a care in the world. I hope this makes it out for that purpose and I'm betting this will somehow turn into a single off one of their upcoming albums, probably Guetta this time.

Give a listen y'all...
