The Download DJ! David Guetta's Single Sees One Million Digital Sales

French spinmeister's tune Titanium is fourth best-selling song of 2012

He already holds the current record for the first ever song to be downloaded over one million times - and there's just no stopping David Guetta who is making an all out assault on the charts!

Well, the download charts anyway, after it was revealed today that the French DJ's song Titanium has also topped the one million mark, making it the fourth best-selling single of 2012, even though it was released in December 2011.

The tune, which features Australian singer Sia, trailed behind fun's We Are Young, Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe and the Grammy-winning song Somebody That I Used To Know, by Goyte.

Being fourth behind those three is quite an achievement but some have wrongly compared Guetta's success with The Spice Girls and The Beatles, who have seen sales of more than two million copies of their singles in the UK - but this was back in the day when a vinyl or CD single was exactly that and downloads didn't exist.

Nonetheless, David, 45, is delighted and today told Digital Spy: "It's incredible! It took me a long time to break the UK as an artist; a decade, but to see all the hard work pay off and have the support of the British people makes it all worthwhile.

"I am so proud of Titanium, it's the start of a new direction for me and a song that I think will stand the test of time.

"To be alongside some of the greatest records and artists of all time by selling a million copies in the UK is a wonderful feeling, and that it's with this record in particular makes me especially happy."

Guetta co-wrote the Black Eyed Peas track 'I Gotta Feeling' in 2009, which was the first song to be downloaded over one million times.
