Listen to Black Coffee and David Guetta’s New Song ‘Drive’

Black Coffee and David Guetta connected on 'Drive.'

South African house music DJ and producer Black Coffee just released a new collaboration with famed French DJ and producer David Guetta. The song, which is titled "Drive," features the vocalist Delilah Montagu. She impressively sings about driving a thousand miles into the dead of the night till she runs out of love for her bae.


"Drive" is electronica meets South African house—Black Coffee's drum patterns anchor some subtle synths and pads. The South African DJ mentioned on Twitter how the single was a "very unique and cool experience" that saw him stepping out of his comfort zone.

He told Kaya FM on Friday:

"I'm very excited also about getting this far and sticking to my guns. One of the biggest fears we had about the song is do we announce who's on the song, or do we let people just hear the song first? And, I'm always about the music so I'm like 'let's not tell the people. So, we went for the song first, and then announced who we're working with."

The single comes with two iterations of the song—the radio version and the club mix.

Although these internet sensations easily transition into stage comedians and online influencers, more often than not. they fade away as quickly as they rise to prominence. Variety is the only way to remain relevant. The audience has become ever so demanding of new creative ventures and they are fed by the immediacy the internet offers.

Josh Alfred, otherwise known as Josh2funny, has had an unusual path to internet comedy fame. He began his online comedy journey after failing in his stand-up comedy foray. Inspired by the vast consumption of social media comedy content, Josh2funny made his first skit in 2016—a short dry humour video which he comically slapped his friend into a state of perpetual confusion.
