DJ and producer David Guetta has released a new Facebook PUMP IT game for his single 'Who's that Chick?,' powered by MXP4's music gaming solution.

During the app's limited beta launch, over 15,000 users played with the game for more than 15 minutes per track, 50% shared and competed against their friends, and 60% of users played more than 20 times.

Some fans, likely trying to nail down the top score, played in excess of 300 times. I repeat, 300 times.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
