David Guetta has recruited Scooter Braun as a manager ahead of the release of his seventh album
David Guetta has signed with Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun.
The 49-year-old superstar DJ is gearing up to release his seventh studio LP and has reportedly inked a deal with Scooter - whose clients include Usher, Ariana Grande and Kanye West - according to Billboard Dance.
However, he will still be with his manager Jean-Charles Carre and live manager Jean-Guillaume Charvet.
He is also represented by Paradigm Talent Agency and he is signed to Big Beat/Atlantic Records and Parlophone via Warner Music Group.
The 'Play Hard' hitmaker is currently working on new music with Nicki Minaj and a track with the 'Anaconda' singer and rapper Lil Wayne.
Talking about their forthcoming single, he said: "We have a good combination with Nicki.
"Every time we make records they are incredible and very successful. I think she is very, very special, and we work really good together, so it's exciting. Plus we have Lil Wayne on top of that. It's pretty big."
The French hunk has already collaborated with Nicki on 2011's 'Where Them Girls At', 2012's 'Turn Me On' and 2015's 'Hey Mama', but teased that they are set to release another banger, which features the rapper testing out her pop vocal skills.
Speaking at a press conference recently, he shared: "When Nicki Minaj was just a big hip-hop artist, she didn't go pop yet, and I was always kind of obsessed with her.
"I think she's really amazing. And actually I'm going to give you a kind of scoop, we're working on a record now and it's pretty huge.
"So I think people are going to be very impressed by the way she's singing on the record."
The 'Titanium' hitmaker also awkwardly shook off a question asking him if he'd like to date the busty brunette after she recently split from her long-term partner Meek Mill.
He said: "She's beautiful. I don't know, I try not to look at them that way. But she's a beautiful woman of course."
