Many parents reach their limits with teenage children. On the other hand, star David Guetta exclaims in an interview: “He’s the best.”

David Guetta (54) released a potential summer single at the beginning of April: With British singers Ella Henderson (26) and Becky Hill (28), the star DJ released “Crazy What Love Can Do”. A detailed music video was released on Friday that sounds like a trailer for an action movie: Geeta plays a police officer searching for Henderson and Hill, who have disappeared on a road trip.

In an interview with Spot on the News, David Guetta talked about the new song and revealed if he will soon get a new album. He also talks about his two children, Tim Elvis (18) and Angie (14), whom he describes as his “best” teen years. “It’s really cool to have teens,” said the 54-year-old. It also answers whether David Guetta could be a guest coach on The Voice of Germany again after 2020.

Your new song was produced with Becky Hill and Ella Henderson. How did the cooperation come about? What do you appreciate about the two women?

David Guetta: Ella wrote the first version of the song. Her voice sounds really good, but she’s also a great songwriter. I recently had the song “Remember” with Becky Hill. I’ve got that massive, sassy voice and I’m really into the ’90s home that I feel right now. So that was perfect for joining forces.

The song is titled “What Love Can Do to Crazy” and sounds like a declaration of love. How does the title of this song apply to your private life?

Guetta: I think love is the greatest driving force in the universe. It is interesting to ask yourself: How many love songs can you write? How many love relationships can you have? You can say: Once you are in love, you will always be the same. But that is not true. It’s different every time. We do the craziest things for love and that’s what makes it so beautiful.

You have been nominated for a Grammy Award this year. Were you disappointed that you didn’t get an award this time?

Geeta: No, not at all. Also something very positive happened. First of all, it is an honor for me to be a candidate. So just being there at all is a win. And secondly, my girlfriend Black Coffee won in the Best Dance Album category. I was a part of the album, so I was very happy with it and also proud to be a part of it.

Their children Angie and Tim Elvis are now in their teens. How has your relationship changed as a result?

Geeta: It’s the best. It is a nice. They are in another room now, waiting for me. Then we go to the gym together. Last night we watched Top Boy together, that great British series. We can watch the same TV shows, listen to music together, go to the gym. We just love doing things together. We talk about business topics and ask her for her opinion. It’s really cool to have teens.

Her son founded a children’s soccer charity in Africa last year. How proud were you of that?

Geeta: That was wonderful. I liked the idea a lot because he loves football and this sport is very important in Africa. So he brought equipment there, hired professional trainers and played with the kids there himself. It was really incredible. I was amazed.

You’ve spent a lot of time with your family during the pandemic. Now you return to the stage a lot. Still taking family time out?

Geeta: Yes of course. I always do this at a certain part of the year. This is very important to me.

After two years, it was finally possible to hold big concerts again. Are you already looking forward to the summer festival?

Geeta: Very much. I’ve been waiting for this forever.

In 2020 I was a guest coach at The Voice of Germany. Can you imagine being on the show again?

Geeta: Yes of course. It was a very enjoyable experience. I really loved it. I was surprised it was so much fun.

You are currently releasing many new songs. Will there be another album from you soon after 2018?

Geeta: I don’t know if there will be one. Honestly, I couldn’t do anything with the songs I’ve released so far this year. To be honest, I’m not considering an album at the moment. It’s a big commitment to make an album. And now I just want to make music to enjoy without the pressure of an album.
