David Guetta, MistaJam And John Newman Drop New Single If You Really Love Me (How Will I Know)

Friday, 02 July 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

David Guetta, MistaJam And John Newman have joined forces for a new single, If You Really Love Me (How Will I Know).

The club-ready banger's chorus is taken from the 1985 Whitney Houston single How Will I Know. Guetta explained:

“Who can resist the chorus from such a classic record as 'How will I Know'! Full of old skool Piano House grooves, this has sunshine all the way through it. Working with MistaJam and John Newman together has made it my 2021 song of the summer.” 

MistaJam added:

“The first Whitney Houston album that the original ‘How Will I Know’ appeared on was always playing in my house growing up. I’ve still got the vinyl! So, it was really cool to flip that meaning of that song into ‘If You Really Love Me (How Will I Know)’ - from something about the start of a relationship to something about the end of one. As an artist I’ve admired for years, it was amazing to finally get to work with David Guetta, especially alongside John Newman who I’ve had the pleasure of supporting since the start of his career.”

Newman also commented on his attachment to the Houston track:

“I’ve had the idea to remake this classic Whitney tune for so long as it’s a song that’s so special to me and my wife. It felt so natural to bring a new story and emotion of my own to the already incredible song and brought this new version of the song to life. When the opportunity came to do this song with David Guetta, someone who I’ve always wanted to work with - it was complete a no brainer for me.”

The song promptly follows up Remember, Guetta's most recent collaboration with British vocalist Becky Hill. This year, he's also put out BED with Raye and Joel Corry, and Heartbreak Anthem with Little Mix and Galantis, among others.
