2013 has certainly got off to a great start for David Guetta. With ‘Titanium’ having recently hit 1 million singles sold in the UK and new single ‘Play Hard’ set for release next month, his latest achievement is the announcement that he has now surpassed the landmark number of 40 million fans on Facebook.
This milestone places him amongst the most popular people on Facebook and at number 17 in the highest ranked musicians on the social network, alongside over 8 million fans on Twitter. As the highest-ranking DJ in the list, this is yet another breakthrough for both Guetta and electronic music as its audience continues to grow daily. This announcement comes after Guetta recently won a VEVO certified award for reaching over 100 million views on 6 of his videos, with over 1 billion views of his videos in total on VEVO, making him the first DJ to be VEVO Certified.
To celebrate this milestone and show his gratitude to each of his 40 millions fans that have shown their support for him, David Guetta is giving away a free download of R3hab’s remix of ‘Play Hard’. Dutch DJ and producer R3hab has quickly asserted himself as one of the most exciting talents in dance music and his remix has quickly proved a fan favourite, racking up over 150k plays on soundcloud within a week of a short preview going live.
