Gwen Stefani’s ‘Make Me Like You': Love Letter to Blake Shelton?
"Used To Love You," Gwen Stefani's first single from forthcoming album This Is What The Truth Feels Like, is the audio-equivalent to a tear-soaked tissue. Thankfully, the LP's next offering, "Make Me Like You," is proof the No Doubt frontwoman's next project also has a sunnier upswing — but is the track in reference to new boyfriend Blake Shelton?
The disco-pop song, released last night (February 12), features beachy drum progressions and soft, funky guitar picks. And the lyrics seem to point directly to a romantic savior: "Yeah this is a feeling I'm not used to / Why'd you have to go and make me like you? / I'm so mad at you 'cause now you got me missing you."
Hmm, sounds a bit familiar...
After a very public divorce from Gavin Rossdale in August 2015, Stefani began dating Shelton, a fellow Voice judge, for a simple enough reason: he was kind. Blake's gentlemanly demeanor and decency made Gwen "feel good again," a source told TMZ in November.
And if you're into Gwen's next single, we've got good news: "Make Me Like You" will be the subject of the first-ever live music video, which Gwen will film during a commercial break at some point during Monday night's (February 15) Grammy Awards (8 PM EST on CBS, in case you've gotta schedule your DVR).
