The French super-producer has revised Haddaway’s 1993 dance hit, “What Is Love,” with pop stars Anne-Marie and Coi Leray. Guetta has been on a roll with the recent revitalizations of popular ’90s dance tracks.
“Baby Don’t Hurt Me” features pop songstresses Anne-Marie and Coi Leray, whose track “Players” went viral on TikTok. The song was co-written by Ed Sheeran, which was hinted at in a previous Rolling Stone interview. To open the song, the “Titanium” producer starts with a soft filtered pad and the iconic synth arpeggio. Anne-Marie’s vocals enter elegantly and push the boundaries right before Leray’s commanding verse.
“On my body, he givin’ me kissеs/I’m well when I’m with him, I’m poppin’ like Adderalls/Baby, drop in my beach and go swimmin’,” Coi Leray raps.

“Baby Don’t Hurt Me” comes shortly after Guetta’s Grammy-nominated “Best Dance/Electronic Recording” “I’m Good (Blue)” with Bebe Rexha. The song was a remake of Eiffel 65’s hugely successful “Blue (Da Ba Dee).” At the time of this article’s publishing, “I’m Good (Blue)” has amassed an impressive 865 million streams on Spotify alone.
Last month, he released a remix of Leray’s viral hit, “Players.” He also previously teamed up with Oliver Tree for “Here We Go Again.”
