CHART SPOTLIGHT. Mary J. Blige originally recorded the vocals for ‘Titanium,’ the latest UK top twenty hit from French DJ David Guetta. By the looks of it, Australian singer Sia ended up on the final version which bows at No.16 this week. Included on the upcoming set Nothing But the Beat (set for release on Aug. 26), the initial version featuring Blige was leaked recently. With lyrics saying ‘You shoot me down / But I won’t fall / I’m titanium,’ the track will certainly be successful on both radio and dancefloors.
The track was co-written by Giorgio Tuinfort and the Dutch house producer Afrojack, whose remix of Leona Lewis’s ‘Collide’ WelcheMusic covered only yesterday. ‘Titanium’ follows the recent hits ‘Little Bad Girl’ (with Taio Cruz and Ludacris) and ‘Where Them Girls At’ (with Flo Rida and Nicki Minaj).
