David Guetta held back his new album so he could include Jessie J.

The dance musician's new album 'Nothing but the Beat' was ready for release, until he heard back from the 'Do It like a Dude' singer about a proposed collaboration.

He told The Sun newspaper: "The album was finished then I got word from Jessie about this collaboration so I called my label and said, 'Stop everything. The album can't go without this track."

The pair never actually met in the studio while recording the track, 'Repeat', but instead communicated through the internet.

David- who still DJs at clubs and festivals across Europe - was in Ibiza while making the track, and admits it wasn't too easy.

He said: "I had to go to the airport lounge to work. Crazy. I would sit all day in the lounge with my headphones on, looking like a homeless person, finishing the vocal mix on my laptop."

'Nothing but the Beat' also includes collaborations with Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Timbaland, Ludacris, Will.i.am, Usher, Snoop Dogg, and Akon and will be released on August 29.
