Gwen Stefani “Baby Don’t Lie”
I can’t say I’m up on Gwen Stefani like her fans, but I also can’t deny her catchy vocals through her solo work with The Neptunes on her first 2 solo albums and going as far back as the No Doubt days (“Hella Good” was my favorite single from them, Gwen & Neptunes killed it.) I also can’t deny that a comeback single from her is worth even the curious listen from the casual fan; after all, it’s been 6 years since her last album, The Sweet Escape.
“Baby Don’t Lie” is said comeback single and the first one for her upcoming 3rd album, title TBD. It goes the modern pop route, but doesn’t feel dumbed down. Catchy vocals and the beat on the hook will make this one a Hot 100 favorite, so no doubt you’ll be hearing this on the radio and everywhere else soon (no pun intended). Though time will tell if this becomes a guilty pleasure of mine, I am more excited to hear her upcoming work with Pharrell yet again.
