David Guetta swings back to simpler times, reinvigorating his decade-old collaboration alongside Kid Cudi with his 2021 rendition of “Memories.” The song’s original version (as well as Guetta’s “F*** Me I’m Famous ! Remix”) hit hard as clubbing staple back in 2009, but the tune’s viral nature in a string of recent TikTok videos argues that it may’ve never lost its step.
As the new remix title suggests, the French DJ didn’t do much to change the structural integrity of the original, but breathes new life into “Memories” with a future bass-inspired lead and a swelling bassline that pairs with Cudi’s vocals like a fine wine. Cudi’s ability to find a fitting home in dance and electro tracks is nothing new; the rapper’s “Day N Night” helped launch Italy’s Crookers to mainstream success all the way back in 2008.
