A two-disc re-release of David Guetta's million-selling 2009 album One Love, One More Love adds a disc of remixes plus new tracks. One of the new cuts is “Who’s That Chick?,” the house music producer’s collaboration with international superstar Rihanna. The album title One Love is not only a complete turnaround from Guetta's usual credo, radio-show moniker, and mix album title -- F*** Me I'm Famous! -- it's also a misrepresentation if meant to infer "unity." The original album is more a jumble of tracks than any previous releases from the house producer, with one selection, "I Gotta Feeling," officially a Black Eyed Peas song that Guetta produced. Still, the strength of the material is undeniable, especially the almost trance-like opener, "When Loves Takes Over," which steals a riff from Coldplay and adds the powerful voice of Kelly Rowland to produce a grand, uplifting floor-filler. The herky-jerky electro-house that's his signature is in effect on "Gettin' Over," a cut that also features the gospel-trained and gospel-huge voice of frequent Guetta guest Chris Willis. Akon and guilty pleasure lyrics ("She's nothing like a girl you've ever seen before/Nothing you can compare to your neighborhood whore") make for a perfect match on "Sexy Bitch," then a handful of B or B-plus material fills the middle before the BEP cut and Estelle's uplifting title track takes it to another level. Even if everything seems built for the 12" format and then landed on an album anyway, Guetta's fans get all the well-done house music they desire, and then some.
