David Guetta’s song ‘Titanium (featuring Sia)” is a massive hit, and Katy Perry just revealed that she turned it down.
During a recent press conference about the Tomorrowland Around The World festival, the singer was chatting with David Guetta when she brought up the story. She asked him, “Do you remember when, almost ten years ago, you sent me ‘Titanium’?” Guetta responds, “Oh my god! Did you turn down the record?”
Katy then goes on to explain why she passed on the song. She said, “So you sent me the song, right? And this is when you had Sia, obviously from Zero 7, you know, who had already had the coolest success. She had demo’d that record. And you’d sent it to me, and I remember specifically listening to it on the plane. I was like, ‘Oh my God, this song is so good. Who is the person on the record? They should stay on the freakin’ record. This is a hit record. Don’t put me on the record! Keep Sia on this record!’ Cause I was already such a huge fan of Zero 7, and so I wrote you back an email, and I just said, ‘You’re crazy. I don’t need to be on this record. Keep Sia on the record.’ And there is ‘Titanium.'”
