Gwen Stefani is kind of a working machine because despite her businesses, music and fashion shows she seems to never get tired. But while we’re waiting for fresh news (I truly can’t wait any longer!) from her music solo career, she found time to join forces with her new country-style boyfriend Blake Shelton. I love Gwen but, I must admit I like also Blake as an artist, even though he belongs to a totally different music world from the one I am more into.
As we all know, quite often, when two artists get engaged, they influence each other. Sometimes things can get weird and nasty, but some other times the results could be good. Go Ahead And Break My Heart is a typical example of a great example of positive contamination. The country star Blake and rock diva Gwen cowrited 4 hands this good country ballad. While Blake is of course used to this kind of sound, I’ve been shocked by the amazing performance of our Hollaback Girl Gwen, who although has experienced and changed many genres throughout her career, she has never pushed herself towards folk and country music.
The song is a perfect power country-pop ballad, a breathtaking duet that combines the best of the two beautiful artists’ voices. A confirmation by Blake and a good experiment for Gwen. Go Ahead And Break My Heart, believe me, has really what it takes to become the next great American hit.
Enjoy Blake and Gwen in love!
