Chart Mondays: David Guetta & Bebe Rexha - I'm Good (Blue)

September 26, 2022 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

She has finally done it, after 10 years in the music industry releasing music, Bebe Rexha has scored her first UK number one, that's right, "I'm Good (Blue)" becomes her first UK chart-topper, in collaboration with David Guetta, making this his seventh UK number one. The song was recorded years before it was officially released, with David Guetta first playing it during a set at Ultra Music Festival 2017. It heavily samples Eiffel 65's "Blue (Da Ba Dee)", creating a nostalgia sensation.

Tiktok tends to rule the charts, worldwide, at the moment, with the video-creating social media platform allowing users to use snippets of audio to create sounds in the videos that they make, and this is precisely what happened with this track, going completely viral on the video sharing platform. The original song was catchy back in the day, so it's not a surprise that when a worldwide DJ samples it on a track with an incredible singer, it once again becomes a hit. The track has been written by David Guetta, Kamille, Phil Plested, Bebe Rexha, Massimo Gabutti, Maurizio Lobina, and Gianfranco Randone, whilst it was produced by David Guetta and Timofey Reznikov with additional production by Ahh.

The pure performance music video, directed by KC Locke, doesn't really showcase the song that well with the lyrics suggesting that they're having an epic night out on the dancefloor of a club, and yet we see sexualised visuals from Bebe Rexha showing her amazing body, as well as the glimpse of David Guetta's amazing toned body as he gets changed. The visuals are separated via a split screen, reminding us of Charlie Puths music video for "We Don't Talk Anymore" which features Selena Gomez.

The artists eventually meet up at Ushuaia, Ibiza where David Guetta is performing, with Bebe Rexha singing "I'm Good (Blue)" live on stage. Amazing camera shots and visuals are used that capture Ushuaia in all its glory and we certainly want to attend a David Guetta residency at Ushuaia, for sure.
