This is the official music video for “When Love Takes Over” an electro-house song by the world renowned French Dj that is David Guetta and American recording artist Kelly Rowland, who fell in love with the track, convinced Guetta to allow her to take it so that she could write and record vocals for it. The song's lyrics carry a message of the euphoria one feels when in love with a significant other, while the production bears some similarities to Coldplay's 2002 hit single, "Clocks". The music video was filmed on 19 May 2009 at Venice Beach, Los Angeles, directed by Jonas Akerlund. David Guetta revealed that the video's story and concept were designed to mimic the story behind the song's creation. He said, "you see Kelly doing her thing and then me on the other side doing mine. Eventually we come together just like how we recorded the song. It's all about sharing the love from this record and making a big party". Many critics have praised it. Most noted the addition of Rowland's powerful and emotionally charged vocals, which made the single the most memorable song from One Love. The production was praised for its lush production and euphoric sentiments. It achieved worldwide success by topping the charts in ten countries, including in the UK, Ireland, Italy and Switzerland. At the time of release, it became Guetta's highest charting single on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Rowland's second number one single in the United Kingdom.
