Renowned DJ David Guetta has also jumped on the trend of creating music with AI using a voice generator of rapper Eminem .
Artificial intelligence continues to gain a strong foothold in the tech industry thanks to the success of ChatGPT . For this reason, AI is beginning to migrate to other areas such as music and even the greatest exponents of certain genres are already using it. An example of this is the popular DJ David Guetta who shared a sample of a song he has been working on.
Through his official Twitter account , the artist demonstrated how this advanced technology works to replicate the voices of famous people. When he performed one of his songs in a live performance, Guetta decided to add Eminem ‘s “voice” replicated by artificial intelligence with such realistic precision that it would seem as if the two collaborated to record it.

In addition to the video, the post also features a short caption that reads “let me introduce you to… Emin-AI-Em.” In the sequence, while the song composed by the DJ plays, the replica of Eminem ‘s voice is also heard singing some lyrics written by Guetta : “This is the future rave sound / I’m getting awesome and underground” .
After this, the video shows an interview that was done to the DJ where he explains that the mix was generated on artificial intelligence sites . “It’s something I did as a joke and it works so well I couldn’t believe it. You can basically write lyrics in the style of any artist you like, so I typed: ‘write an Eminem- esque verse about the future rave’, and went to another AI website that can recreate the voice. I put the text in there and put the record on and people went crazy ,” he explained.
In addition, Guetta clarified in the responses to the tweet that he “obviously” will not distribute the song commercially.

The debate on AI in music
In recent months, a wide variety of AI -created content has gone viral on platforms like TikTok . Various people have been incorporating artificial intelligence software into existing songs to make them sound like another artist is performing them. Some of the most replicated voices are from artists like Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, and Bad Bunny .
Drayk , a music generator website, also rose to controversy in January after its ability to create Drake songs with AI was proven . The viral platform no longer exists and only worked for a short time, possibly due to legal issues for using this artist’s image without his consent. As the debate over whether to use artificial intelligence in music continues, some artists have expressed disapproval of the use of this technology in creative and artistic processes.
