"Titanium" is a song recorded by French DJ and music producer David Guetta, featuring vocals by Australian recording artist Sia. Taken from the former's fifth studio album, Nothing but the Beat, the song was written by Sia Furler, Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort and Afrojack. The song was released as the album's fourth single in December 2011.
The gorgeous vocals and empowering words from singer-songwriter Sia move "Titanium" above the quality level of the standard David Guetta club track. The impact flows over you like a wave crashing on the shore. It is still relatively simplistic in structure, but the sounds are quite beautiful.

After the plucked guitar part that opens the song, the first buildup into the chorus of "Titanium" is exhilarating. Sia's voice not only gains your attention when she is quietly delivering the verse, but also has the sheer power to soar above the dance beats. The negatives about the song are endemic to much of David Guetta's work. The structure is simplistic and can become repetitive and dull after hearing "Titanium" multiple times.
The high points here are truly exciting, but the listener is left wanting more heft to the record. It would be very interesting to see what a David Guetta track like "Titanium" would sound like if it was fleshed out into something more complete. He might truly unleash an epic pop record if that were the case. For now, a mesmerizing vocalist like Sia is needed to hold attention. Otherwise, "Titanium" would sound like just another cranked out factory piece.
