David Guetta samples Nancy Sinatra for new single with Skylar Grey
French DJ and singer give ‘Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)’ the EDM treatment
Grey covers Sinatra’s vocals with her signature husky purr, while Guetta sticks to his typical hard-driving electro beats. The track begins with a big build up, but plummets into a nearly unaltered sample of the song, accompanied by chirps of “bang-pow” in the style of French pop. The styles don’t ever come together in this attempt at EDM banger-meets-classic country. For comparison, Sinatra’s original is included below.
No word on whether “Shot Me Down” will be included on Guetta's sixth studio album, which is slated for release sometime this year. The track is available to stream or buy on Beatport
