Gwen Stefani Goes For The Gold
Akon produced and is featured on Gwen‘s latest single, “Sweet Escape.” He recently talked about working with the Hollaback Girl: “I said, Hell yeah! Once me and Gwen met, it was like we’ve known each other for years, like that [collaboration] was supposed to happen. It was crazy. Once I got the call, I started doing background, checking up on No Doubt [all the way] to her solo project. I’m going through all those records and trying to figure out what’s missing from what she’s doing today. The sound she had back then [during No Doubt] that made her so big, it wasn’t incorporated into this album. So we sat down and Gwen had a whole bunch of ideas. She had a clothing line, she’s got all kinds of stuff going on. She wanted to incorporate all that into the record. We were trying to figure out words we could use to incorporate all that into the record and coincide with what she was doing as far as imaging and marketing her brands. ‘Sweet Escape’ was a perfect title for her. Once she heard the beat, we sat down and came up with collaborative ideas and started writing.”
