Gwen Stefani Releases New Song Full Of References To Her Past To ‘Reintroduce’ Herself
Gwen Stefani has had a huge year and it’s only getting bigger with the drop of her new song “Let Me Reintroduce Myself.” The Latin and the reggae-inspired song has already been a huge hit for her fans and is full of references to some of her iconic throwback songs.
Gwen Stefani Is Reintroducing Herself To The World With Newest Song
Some of the lyrics in “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” pay homage to Gwen’s very popular songs like “Hollaback Girl.” She references bananas in the new song, which she iconically spelled out in her 2004 hit. Gwen said that she never even expected to write this song but it just happened naturally. In the song, she sings that this is “not a comeback.” She is simply reintroducing herself to the world.
The Voice coach sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe to talk about her latest song. “I mean, there’s just nothing else that I do in my life, and I have done so many things, that makes me feel ignited the way a new song makes me feel.”
“It was just a full circle, back to my roots, I know what kind of music I want to make,” she said about the direction of the new song which takes fans back to her days with the band No Doubt. “And I want to make music that makes people feel happy.”
The Cover Art For Gwen’s New Song Is A Throwback To ‘Just A Girl’
Gwen previously posted the cover art for the single, two side by side photos of Gwen from the past and now. On the left side of the cover, she is wearing the outfit from the “Just A Girl” music video that she did with No Doubt 25 years ago. She spruced up the outfit by adding a necklace that has Blake Shelton’s last name on it, a little ode to her fiancé. On the right side of the cover, Gwen wears a sexy black strappy outfit with fishnet stockings.
She previously spoke about how she wrote the song “Just A Girl” as a feminist anthem. “I wrote this song because I was just getting in touch with that feeling when you’re born if you’re a female, you just don’t think about it, you’re just a human and through life, you get this power through your sexuality, but then you’re vulnerable at the same time because all of a sudden you’re a victim,” she said on The View.
She Also Has Another Huge Music Milestone To Celebrate With Blake Shelton
Gwen and Blake’s duet “Happy Anywhere” just hit No. 1 on country radio the same day Gwen released her song. “BOOM #1!!! This feeling never gets old…and it’s even more special when I get to share it with @gwenstefani!!! Thank you to country radio and ALL OF YOU for loving #HappyAnywhere!!!” Blake wrote on Instagram. Gwen reposted the video and expressed her disbelief.
Blake and Gwen have been dominating the charts and award shows with their duets “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere.” The pair recently celebrated their engagement in October and are both coaches on this season of The Voice. They began their relationship back in 2015 after connecting over their similar situations with divorce. Check out the What’s Hot Video below for an in-depth look at their full relationship timeline.
