The Where Them Girls At Songfacts reports that Guetta got Flo Rida on board for this song as a result of their dual success on Club Can’t Handle Me because the rapper wanted to return the favor. However, when Guetta wanted to add an extra twist by featuring Minaj as well, she was initially less than thrilled as she wanted to concentrate on her own recordings. The French producer recalled to MTV News that he met the New York MC: “I was gonna play records, but she said, ‘You know, you should know that I wanna do a solo record. I don’t want to be with somebody else.’ So I said, ‘OK, no problem. Can I just play you that record?’ And that record is so big that it’s undeniable. And she was like, ‘OK, I’ll do that last one.’ And it’s a major record!”

‘Where Them Girls At’ was the lead single release from uber DJ/producer David Guetta’s upcoming fifth studio album and debuted at No.3 in the UK chart on it’s release in May 2011. The track features vocals from Nicki Minaj and Flo Rida, who David previously collaborated with on 2010 chart-topper ‘Club Can’t Handle Me’.
