David Guetta’s latest single adheres to the expected formula carved out by his catalogue of straightforward, half-rapped and feel-good party anthems for the clubs. The DJ supreme finds himself back at the top of the charts on what could otherwise be a forgettable collaboration, thanks to Akon and Ne-Yo. “Work hard, play hard.Work hard, play hard. We work hard, play hard. Keep partyin’ like it’s your job,” chants Ne-Yo on the gritty club banger.
Take note, Pitbull, Nelly and Chris Brown – Ne-Yo’s coming after your territory. Putting the chorus aside, the track is much like any other DG pop-oriented single. Taken from his album ‘Nothing But the Beat’, which shifted over 2.5 million copies worldwide, Guetta once again provides the world with a star-studded anthem that is impossible to resist. It’s catchy. It’s danceable. It’s bouncy. And like it or not, ‘Play Hard’ might just be the soundtrack to your summer. Check it out above.
