"Where Them Girls At" is a song by French DJ and record producer David Guetta, featuring vocals from American rapper Flo Rida and Trinidadian-born American rapper Nicki Minaj. It was released for digital download from May 2, 2011 by Virgin Records (EMI France.), serving as the lead single from Guetta's upcoming fifth studio album Nothing But the Beat. It was written by Michael Caren, Jared Cotter, Flo Rida, David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, Juan and Oscar Silinas, Giorgio Tuinfort and Sandy Vee.

Initially, "Where Them Girls At" was recorded in 2010 and featured just Flo Rida, however after getting into touch with Minaj about a collaboration, Guetta played Minaj the record and she decided to record vocals for it. Computer hackers obtained an a cappella version of the song and added their own production before leaking the song online. Guetta and his label subsequently mastered a proper version of the song, released it earlier than planned and called an employee of The Pentagon to investigate the matter.

"Where Them Girls At" combines Electro house with hip hop. An accompanying music video for the song was filmed in Los Angeles in May 2011 and released June 28, 2011.

Reception Edit

Lewis Corner from Digital Spy said "[the song] is a rambunctious mix of hard-hitting thuds and candy-coated synths over lyrics spouting the standard sexy laydee and partying clichés. Its centre, however, is a sweet 'n' gooey tongue-lashing from Minaj, who commands: 'Through the club all the girls in the back of me/ This ain't football why the f**k they tryna tackle me?', in her usual quick-witted, lickety-split manner." He awarded the song three out of five stars. "Where Them Girls At" saw a top ten debut in New Zealand and a top twenty debut in Ireland and the Netherlands. In addition, the song debuted at number-one on both Belgian Ultratip charts & the official Scotland charts. On the UK Singles Chart, the song debuted at number three, giving Guetta his twelfth top twenty hit. In the United States, the song debuted at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, selling over 160,000 digital downloads in less than one week and giving Guetta his third top 20 hit in the USA. As of September 2011, the song had sold over 1,000,000 digital copies in the US. The song debuted at number three in Canada, becoming the highest debuting song that week on the Canadian Hot 100.
