Gwen Stefani is making her official return, and she has recruited Saweetie to be her co-pilot in her latest single. “Slow Clap” is the second single taken from Gwen Stefani’s yet untitled fifth studio album, scheduled to be released later in 2021. On the new track, the first verse oozes the perfect level of confidence to match the upbeat track:
I’ll be David, you Goliath, set the rule and I’ll defy it/ You’ll be angry, I’ll be quiet, you’ll be purple, I’m the violet/ Take a ride ‘cause I’m the co-pilot, I’m the ice cream, you’re just the diet/ Be the captain, I’ll be the pirate. You’re Billy the Kid and I’ll be the Wyatt/
Are you rooting for me like I’m rooting for you? Let me hear you get loud like surround sounds/ Clap, clap, clap, clap, clap, clap. Clap, de-clap, de-clap, clap, slow clap
Gwen Stefani’s last full length project was her This Is What The Truth Feels Like project, although she re-released her debut album Love Angel Baby Music as a 15th anniversary version last year. That project included her iconic hits like “Hollaback Girl,” “Rich Girl,” and “Harajuku Girls,” which were songs that were instrumental to ladies everywhere in the 2000’s.
Most recently, Saweetie linked up with another fellow star Doja Cat for their hit single “Best Friends. Prior to that was her Jhene Aiko-assisted single “Back To The Streets.” 2020 also saw Saweetie deliver dope cuts like “Money Mouf” with Tyga and YG, “Bussin 2.0” with Tay Money, and “Tap In,” the last of which as since climbed to the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. “Tap In” later on caught a big remix that featured Post Malone, DaBaby, and Jack Harlow. Pretty Bitch Music features some all-star-level production from names like Timbaland, Danja, Lil John, Murda Beatz and will follow her 2019 EP ICY.
