David Guetta ft. Kelly Rowland – When Love Takes Over
This sort of sounds like nothing at first. Kelly’s voice is never really spectacular, and requires something pretty special to llift it. This is certainly no Dilemma (what is?) but then it isn’t really trying to be.
Kelly says “it’s complicated”, but it really isn’t. As if the arms-in-the-air shimmy of Guetta’s blunt production didn’t tell the whole story, the video’s stuffed with similarly evident signifiers. It’s a summer tune. A very 90s summer tune. No more, no less. But it’s a pretty big one once you give it a chance.
