Ultra Music Festival was full of surprises, but this blast from the past was one of the most unexpected moments for sure…


David Guetta and Bebe Rexha teamed up for a revamped version of “Blue (Da Ba Dee)” by Eiffel 65, which he premiered during his Main Stage set Sunday night.

As the familiar synths rise Guetta shouts, “This one is exclusive, Ultra! Later in the video below, he continues, “You’re the very first people on the planet to hear this record, and I made it specially for you!”

The melody remains, but the lyrics are totally different. The pop star belts out:

I’m Blue, yeah I’m feeling alright
Baby, I’mma have the best f*cking night of my life
And, wherever it takes me, I’m down for the ride
Baby, don’t you know I’m blue?
Yeah, I’m feelin’ alright

The original 1999 single, (yeah, it’s been that long) is truly a gem, but what do you think of this version?
