Released in July,1000 Forms Of Fearpeaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and features collaborations with GRAMMY-nominated producers Diplo and Greg Kurstin and the Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi, among others. The album features 12 tracks, including Big Girls Cry, Chandelier and Elastic Heart, the latter of which is also featured on the soundtrack for the 2013 filmThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

As a master collaborator, Guetta has learned many of these techniques to take the awe-inspiring talents of some of musics biggest stars such asRihannaNicki MinajandUsherand harness them into an effective accessible record. But his respect for Sias ability is so strong that it presents a unique production challenge, albeit one every producer would love to have.

Weve been working very often together, with Sia, in different ways. Sometimes shes writing on my music or sometimes Im producing around her song, Guetta told us in South Beach duringMiami Music Week. So this time it was like that. She sent me that song and I loved it.

It took me a minute to find the right approach to [Flames], and Im very happy with it. That funky bass line, I love, says Guetta. Its a little bit like I did in Dangerous, the previous record I did. It has that French touch feeling.

For her part, Sias raw talent and je ne sais quoi actually presents somewhat of a challenge for Guetta, who has to dig deep to discern if what hes hearing is the magnetism of her voice or the makings of a true pop hit.

Anything she does I love. Its almost hard for me not to like anything that shes singing, says Guetta. Its funny actually because when we were in the studio, especially around the time of Titanium, she was not the huge star she is now she had this thing in her that was not out yet.

In 2010 Sia releasedWe AreBorn, which cracked the Top 40, and co-wrote three tracks for GRAMMY winner Christina Aguileras hit albumBionic, including You Lost Me. Sia subsequently went on a brief hiatus from recording and focused her efforts on songwriting, co-penning songs for the likes of GRAMMY winners Madonna, Britney Spears, Beyonc, Celine Dion, and Rihanna, for whom she co-wrote the 2012 No. 1 hit Diamonds. Sia was also featured on Flo Ridas Top 5 hit Wild Ones, which earned her a GRAMMY nomination for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for 2012.

Not only is she a genius songwriter, but shes also an incredible singer and also the way she does her harmonies is completely mind-blowing, Guetta says, still glowing. I feel like she could sing the phone book and it would be amazing, and plus her lyrics are insane. So when you have the voice the melody and the lyrics, then my job is quite easy, you know?

The Frenchman certainly has made things look easy for some time. For two years running, he took home the GRAMMY for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the52ndand53rd GRAMMY Awardsfor When Love Takes Over (Electro Extended Remix) and Revolver (David Guettas One Love Club Remix), respectively.

We would make four songs a day it was insane and the thing is everything sounded amazing. When Im listening to the song I always try to say, What if it wasnt her singing? Would I still like the song? Because, if you want to know if its a hit, anybody has to be able to sing it and to relate to it. And of course, not everybody can sing the way she sings.

I never thought shed say yes, but asked anyway. She was kind + giving. A goddess. We began a journey together that Ill never forget. Proud to announce that Sade has created an original song for WRINKLE IN TIME. Its entitled Flower of the Universe. And its a dream come m/FdXrZ1MFMO

I have to say that Ultra has managed to become so important that [all the DJs] prepare our set like [nowhere else] in the year. I have those two moments, probably forTomorrowlandin Europe and for Ultra in America we work days, sometimes weeks, on that DJ set. I see it as like a fashion designer, a new collection. Youre presenting your new music.

The filmssoundtrackincludes the first new song from multiple GRAMMY winnerSadein years, new tracks fromKehlaniSiaand sisters Chloe X Halle, whose debut album arrives March 23, as well as a soundtrack composed by GRAMMY-nominated Game Of Thrones composerRamin Djawadi.

There was a lot of hype around me at the moment because I was changing not only the music in my scene but pop … because I was the one representing this new wave of music. I think this also helped me, Guetta reflects. I have many awards, but I dont put them all [on display], but the GRAMMYs, definitely. Actually, when I had No. 1 DJ in the world and the [two] GRAMMYs, those are the three.
