David Guetta, Sia’s video for “Let’s Love” is about virtual romance

The frequent collaborators go all in on ’80s-inspired retrowave.

Pop titans David Guetta and Sia have released the video for their retrowave collaboration “Let’s Love.”

“Let’s Love” sounds like a blast from the past, casting Sia’s distinctive vocals over twinkling synths and an ’80s dance beat. In its music video, two youths fall in love in a neon-lit simulation, though real life threatens to tear them apart.

“It’s a song that we wrote in confinement,” Guetta told We Rave You of “Let’s Love,” which is their ninth collaboration. “I texted [Sia] and it was at the beginning of March, I was stuck in Miami and watching the news all day and everything was so depressing. There was so much pressure, countries were pointing fingers at each other, tension between communities. Then I texted her like, ‘We need to make the world happy, let’s make a happy song, let’s make something that feels good and talks about going through this together and not against each other.’”

Guetta’s new single follows a run of releases this year that started with “Conversations in the Dark” starring John Legend, “Body Beat” with Tom Staar and his New Rave EP in collaboration with Danish DJ Morten. The last time Guetta and Sia worked together was on 2018’s “Flames,” some seven years on from their multi-platinum hit “Titanium.”
