In a recent interview with Cool FM Nigeria in Lagos via Skype, Guetta shared his perspective on Ayra Starr’s rising prominence in the music industry. He stated, “When people speak about Ayra Starr in the [music] industry, a lot of us see her as the new Rihanna. Because she comes with her vibe that is very specific because of where she’s coming from. But she has the potential of crossing over into different cultures.

Highlighting the artist’s international appeal, Guetta marveled at Ayra Starr’s success, especially in Europe and the U.S. He remarked, “Since we recorded, she is having even more hits. It’s crazy. I’m French. I was in Paris, and everyone was talking about her. I was shocked like, ‘This is amazing. An African artiste that’s killing it in Europe, killing it in the U.S, it’s not everyday. Last time I saw it was working with Akon.’
