DJ Mag North America's September cover star, the one and only David Guetta, talks success, pop and being a workaholic...

Whether you love it, hate it or (be honest) pretend to hate it, there’s no denying the colossal impact David Guetta’s music has had on the world. The 50-year-old’s global fame, riches and sound has reached levels only few dare dream about, let alone actually achieve. This is neither hyperbole nor speculation, it’s in the numbers – and his Grammys, countless hits, homes, jets and bank accounts don’t lie.
