David Guetta: This One's For you

We'll be hearing a lot more of this David Guetta track between now and the summer.

This One's For You is the official anthem for the Euro 2016 football tournament, being held in France in June and July.

It follows a long tradition of mediocre football-related songs over the decades. Zara Larsson is a winner of the 2008 Swedish version of Britain's Got Talent, and she's recently been in the top five the UK with the song Lush Life.

Guetta meanwhile faces accusations of plagiarism over the new song, with claims that the song is more than a close relative of Lean On by Major Lazer.

If France hopes to get a higher profile for French music onthe back of Euro 2016, it's a bit of an own goal. While Guetta's certainly an international French brand, there are plenty of more interesting musical acts in the country at the moment, plenty of which could have come up with something ahead of the tournament. Imagine what someone like Justice could have come up with.
