Katy Perry dropped alot of info during a Tomorrowland press conference on July 23.
The pop star revealed that she turned down a feature on David Guetta‘s 2011 hit single ‘Titanium.’
While speaking to the EDM DJ she said:
“Do you remember when, like almost 10 years ago, you sent me ‘Titanium’?”
She then continued:
“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.’”
While the ‘Smile’ singer may have missed out on it a hit, it became a huge one for both Guetta and Sia when it peaked at #5 on the Hot 100.
