David Guetta (feat. Akon & Ne-Yo) - 'Play Hard' (Music Video)
After several teasers over the past few weeks, French producer/DJ David Guetta unleashes the visual for his Akon and Ne-Yo-assisted single 'Play Hard'. 'Play Hard' will be serving as the third single from Guetta's re-release of his fifth studio album 'Nothing But The Beat 2.0'. If you don't recognize the classic sample, it's from Alice Deejay's hit 'Better Off Alone'. There's a lot going on in this video, from rodeo's to Ne-Yo eating pancakes to David Guetta getting tattooed.
Officially released on March 15th as a single, 'Play Hard' debuted on the UK singles chart at the 22 spot and peaked at the 15th spot on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Songs chart. I personally don't think this song or video is up to par with some of the other hit's Guetta has in his catalog, but I do enjoy hearing the 'Better Off Alone' sample. The visual was filmed over in Mexico as well.
'Play Hard' has already been remixed by other DJ's like R3hab, Spencer & Hill, Albert Neve, & Maurizio Gubellini. All those remixes(including the Guetta one) are up for purchase right now on iTunes. Also available on iTunes is the 'Nothing But The Beat 2.0' album where this track originally came from. Watch the 'Play Hard' visual above.
