David Guetta's single Titanium has hit the one million download sales mark, according to the Official Charts Company.

It means the French DJ now claims two of the biggest-selling download tracks of all time.

His first song to break through the one million sales barrier in the UK was The Black Eyed Peas track I Gotta Feeling, which was co-written and produced by the dance producer.

"It's incredible," said David Guetta.

It took me a long time to break the UK as an artist; a decade. To see all the hard work pay off and have the support of the British people makes it all worthwhile
