One Love is the fourth studio album by French DJ David Guetta, first released in the United Kingdom on 24 August 2009 through Virgin Records.

It spawned a total of six worldwide hit singles throughout 2009 and 2010, most notably "When Love Takes Over", featuring American recording artist Kelly Rowland, "Sexy Bitch", featuring Senegalese-American R&B singer Akon, and "Who's That Chick?", featuring Barbadian recording artist Rihanna and "One Love", featuring British recording artist Estelle. One Love is also Guetta's last studio album to feature his long-time collaborator, Chris Willis, on vocals. Since the album's initial release it has since been reissued several times to include previously unreleased tracks and other bonus material.
One Love received generally favourable reviews from most music critics. According to Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 66, based on ten reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews". Entertainment website Digital Spy gave the album a very positive review and rewarded it four out of five starts. The Los Angeles Times gave the album 3/5, saying "Guetta is at his best (and his most commercial) when he's equipped with a melody as chewy as his beats." Ginger Clemens of Billboard calls it an effortless integration off catchy dance beats with expressive vocals, turning out Top 40-friendly songs while remaining true to dance club culture.Allmusic: Even if everything seems built for the 12" format and then landed on an album anyway, Guetta's fans get all the well-done house music they desire, and then some.musicOMH: He can doubtless get a party started every bit as effectively as either of those two [Paul van Dyk & Diplo] but, on this record at least, in dance terms he finds himself rather falling between two stools as he enlarges the walls of his big tent. Caroline Sullivan of The Guardian gave One Love 3 out of 5 stars calling many of the songs enjoyable while favoring "Estelle's tender performance of the title track deserves special mention" and mentioning that "It feels like a series of tracks rather than a fully realised long-player."NOW Magazine calls "One Love" surprisingly deep.Observer Music Monthly calls it "the sound of the summer! If summer for you means a fake tan and drinking WKD for a week in the Med with the likes of Kelly Rowland and Will.i.am popping up as guests with your fave."
