  • Guetta breaks down his formula for success, talks new album

    LONDON (AP) - Grammy-winning DJ-producer and hitmaker David Guetta says success is mostly down to hard work and luck - not talent.

    The 50-year-old French performer, who says he feels "very complete as a man and an as an artist right now," credits his longevity to his persistent work ethic, adding that he believes the formula for success is "talent 20 percent, work probably 70 percent and 10 percent of luck."

    Guetta released the album, "7," in September. His last album was 2014's "Listen."

    Despite "7'' being his seventh record, he said the album's title has a deeper meaning.

    "Seven is like a full week, seven days to create the world in the Bible. And I feel like (I'm) starting a new cycle in my life," he said. "It's actually a similar feeling ... (to) when I did my first album, which is a great place to be in."

    In an interview with the Associated Press, Guetta discussed how he stays healthy on the road, the addicting energy of live performances and his new album, which features collaborations with Justin Bieber, Sia, Nicki Minaj, J Balvin, Bebe Rexha and Martin Garrix, among others.
