When David Guetta in 2010 penned his timeless lyric, "Those will be the best memories," little did he know those memories would fetch nearly $100 million.

Warner Music has has acquired the rights to the dance music luminary's recorded music catalog, which contains global hits "Hey Mama," "Titanium," and "Turn Me On," among many others. The pact sees the music giant acquiring Guetta's worldwide catalog from the last two decades and inking a new deal for future recordings.

While the exact sum of the pact has not been publicly confirmed, the Financial Times reports that Warner spent over $100 million. Variety, on the other hand, spoke to two industry sources who asserted that the figure is in the "dozens of millions." However, considering the fact that Guetta's future music recordings are baked into the partnership, the nine-figure value seems a foregone conclusion.

Guetta has dropped eight new tracks in 2021, and a press release issued to announce the Warner deal notes "there is much more new music to come."
