Gwen Stefani is feeling romantic and she wants everyone to know it.
Shortly after announcing the details on her upcoming solo album, “This Is What The Truth Feels Like”, where she shared a handwritten track list (featuring 12 songs in total while a special edition for Target includes 4 additional bonus tracks), the former No Doubt frontwoman unveiled the album’s second single “Make Me Like You”.
Looking absolutely stunning on her single cover art, Gwen is seen rocking bright red lipstick, a short curly hairdo, and sexy black eye makeup. Clearly moving along from her bitter breakup anthem, “Used To Love You”, her latest upbeat single is all about renewal and finding love again. And it’s no-brainer which cowboy she is singing about ;)
In the 3-minute-plus song, she sings about the complications with trust after being hurt in the past:
“I was fine before I met you / I was broken but fine / I was lost and uncertain / But my heart was still mine / I was free before I met you / I was broken but free / All alone in the clear view / But now you are all I see.”
In the chorus, she belts, “Why’d you have to go and make me like you? / 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.”
Blake Shelton, who no doubt (pun intended) was the inspiration behind the song, couldn’t contain his excitement for his girlfriend’s latest single. He tweeted:

After a few failed attempts at making a comeback over the past year and a half, she has finally struck gold with “Make Me Like You”. It’s pure, vibrant and cheeky – the type of pop music we fans have been patiently waiting for the singer to churn out.
Guess all it took was for her to get out of a bad long-term relationship with Gavin Rossdale and finding inspiration in her 39-year-old country crooner. We want more of these please, Gwen! So much more.

Gwen will be making her live debut of “Make Me Like You” at the Grammy Awards where it will be filmed at broadcast live during the commercial break on CBS.
