Gwen Stefani Returns To Vibrant Pop With Her “Make Me Like You” Single: Listen
Gwen Stefani has had a few missteps in the creation of her third solo LP (she even had to scrap it all together at one point), but this time around the singer is sticking to her tried-and-true bubbly formula with the new single — “Make Me Like You.”
Produced by Mattman & Robin and written by Stefani, Justin Tranter and Julia Michaels, the sticky-sweet uptempo swirls in pop, disco and light rock (check out those feathery guitar riffs) for a vibrant melody that is an immediate departure from the heartbreaking “Used To Love You.” “Why’d you have to go and make me like you? / Yeah this is a feeling I’m not used to / I’m so mad at you cause now you got me missing you,” she presumably pleads to current boyfriend Blake Shelton over the punchy, summer-ready beat.
Along with the single release, Gwen is prepping to reveal its live music video in partnership with Target during a commercial break for the Grammy Awards on Monday (February 15) night.
