David Guetta has transformed Calvin Harris and Sam Smith‘s “Promises” from a sure and smooth top 40 hit into a grand production more fit for the main stage.
Adding a fresh, melodic layer that resembles the feel of a progressive house anthem, Guetta takes “Promises” to places it has never been. The styles of all artists involved jive in perfect harmony for this remix, which is undeniably more energetic than the original.
When speaking with the Big Top 40, Guetta revealed he was a “little mad” at Harris for working with the powerhouse singer before he had a chance to. “I texted [Calvin Harris] and said I cannot believe that you did this,” he joked. “This is what I always wanted to do and you did it before me again.”
Earlier this month, “Promises” landed Harris and Smith at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart. The collaboration tied the EDM phenom with Rihanna for the most No. 1s on the chart, 12 total each. Guetta and Madonna were the next closest contenders, with seven No. 1s each.
