Calling upon an early 2000s R&B track, David Guetta just dropped a new track entitled ‘Family Affair (Dance For Me)’ and if you couldn’t tell by the title, the vocal sample is lifted from Mary J. Blige‘s hypnotic and matter-of-fact track ‘Family Affair’ from her 2001 album ‘No More Drama’.
The release announcement came earlier this week in an Instagram post alongside a clip of him performing the track at London‘s Summertime Ball last month. The track is released through Pete Tong‘s label FFRR and serves as Guetta’s third track on the label, the first since his 2019 tracks ‘Never Be Alone’ featuring Aloe Blacc and ‘Thing For You’ featuring Martin Solveig.
It’s been an action-packed few months for the DJ. From summer residencies to iconic b2b sets, not to mention, more than a handful of brand new releases including a collaboration with The Black Eyed Peas and Shakira for their track ‘Don’t You Worry’, and a monumental team-up with Dimitri Vegas, Nicole Scherzinger and Azteck for their song ‘The Drop’.
‘Family Affair (Dance For Me)’ is everything we’ve ever wanted and more. Guetta surgically inserts the familiar vocal phrase into a grounded house beat and heavy bass line guaranteed to be the cherry on top for the final months of festival season. The spirit of Mary J. Blige’s original track is very much present, this time prepped and primed for the dancefloors.
