David Guetta & OneRepublic reveal emotive acoustic version of ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait’

Superstar DJ and producer David Guetta and Grammy-nominated OneRepublic share an acoustic version of the smash-hit single, ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait’.

This intimate take on the dance-pop original – an instant Guetta classic – takes the focus away from the dancefloor, introducing gentle acoustic guitar and sweeping cello strings, resulting in an altogether stripped-back, emotive rendition.

I Don’t Wanna Wait‘, has skyrocketed to success since its April release. By June, it garnered 250 million global streams and 21 million in the UK, the track also broke into Spotify’s Global Chart at #33. The single has also achieved #1 across European airplay and #1 Dance Radio in the US, as well as a Top 10 single in the Belgium Official Charts.

Shortly following the release of ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait‘, which features the unmistakable vocals of OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, fans were gifted with a music video in late April. Sitting at 28M video views, it was shot at Ultra Music Festival and captures the epic moment Guetta and Tedder premiered the song live to some 60,000 festival-goers, paired with a heartwarming coming together of two romantic ravers.

This mellow acoustic version of ‘I Don’t Wanna Wait‘ by David Guetta and OneRepublic comes just in time for the peak of summer, as both parties begin a season full of exciting shows at huge venues.

Stripping away the electronic elements made for sold-out festival stages, this version of the track makes for dancing in a more intimate setting, however, amplifying the emotive elements of the track that pull at the heartstrings.
