"Memories" is a song by French disc jockey David Guetta featuring American rapper Kid Cudi. It was released in February 2010 as the fourth single from Guetta's fourth studio album, One Love. The song became a top five hit in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Australia, the Netherlands, Finland, Poland, New Zealand, France and Ireland. It charted within the top ten in Germany, Hungary, Switzerland and Denmark. The music video was filmed in Miami and directed by Keith Schofield. It was released in the United States as the album's fourth single.

Critical reception[edit]

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating: "Here he drafts in Kid 'Day N' Nite' Cudi to lay down the vocals over his trademark piano-backed beats. All the makings of a Guetta classic are present and correct, and Cudi's nonchalant, mellow vocals are pleasant enough, but it all feels that bit too familiar. It's hard to avoid the conclusion that 'Memories' adds nothing new to a sound that seemingly took over the world in '09 – not that anyone's going to grumble when it comes on at Oceana this Friday night, of course" 3/5 stars.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video was filmed in Miami on January 4, 2010. It was directed by Keith Schofield. It shows Kid Cudi, wearing a Guns N' Roses T-shirt and a Cleveland Indians baseball hat, and David Guetta walking along the Biscayne Boulevard, while the club scenes were filmed in Nocturnal.[2] Fans were invited to be in the club scene. There is also a scene that takes place in a Franck Provost[3] hair dressing salon where a hairdresser is using a hair dryer on a bald man, and another applies shaving foam in a circle on another client's head. It shows the camera crew to be nude models which are seen reflecting in windows, metal objects and mirrors throughout the video with certain areas censored out. A super clean version of the video was released for use in public settings.
