Stefani Goes Solo

Finally! ripped this first Gwen solo single off the radio. It was written with Former Non Blonde Linda Perry.

Gwen Stefani – “(Take A Chance) You Stupid Ho”“What You Waiting For?”

(Thanks Cath for the heads up.)

Songwriter/producer Dallas Austin tells MTVNews:

Everybody is anticipating [Gwen’s CD], and it’s everything they think it’s going to be. It’s myself, Andre 3000, Nellee Hooper and Linda Perry [producing]. It’s almost like an ’80s mixtape. We go back to some electro-pop, to some breakdance/b-boy stuff, then it goes into stuff like the Cure, then kind of alternative, like the Pretenders.

Gwen’s like a little eighth grader, in a way. She’s a sweetheart. She’s so used to writing with the band and being in No Doubt ? in that mode. This is a new experience for her. We had a chance to collaborate on some really good stuff. She’s incredible.

Awww. Love Angel Music Baby drops 11/23.

UPDATE: Is this song Weezer’s “Hash Pipe” x Hitch Hike’s “Travel Girl”? I don’t know; I’ve never heard “Travel Girl.” But the 1st verse melody is totally ripped from “Hash Pipe.”
