The Frenchman said Ayra Starr’s unique music has the potential to attract a global audience.

He also applauded her ability to transcend various cultures with her music, potentially noting her increasing success and popularity.

Speaking  via Skype, Guetta said,

“When people speak about Ayra Starr in the [music] industry, many 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.

“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.'”

David Guetta, who recently worked with Ayra Starr and American rapper Lil Durk on the track ‘Big Fu,’ highlighted her international appeal, drawing parallels to the last time he witnessed such global recognition with Akon.
