From The Vault: Gwen Stefani – ‘What You Waiting For’

As we await for official news on her third solo album, we’ll be saluting Gwen Stefani in this week’s From The Vault. Our pick goes out to her 2004 debut solo single ‘What You Waiting For?’

After over a decade of success as the lead vocalist of No Doubt, the time had come for Gwen to fly on her own. On the high-octane track written by herself and Pop-wonder Linda Perry, the singer reveals transitioning wasn’t as easy as one may think could think. From the pressure of her record label and the expectation of the music industry to writer’s block and the guilt of leaving her bandmates behind, ‘Waiting’ represents a battle between two sides of Gwen’s mind – a rather neurotic one and a more confident one.

The first single of eclectic solo set ‘Love.Angel.Music.Baby’, it wasn’t much of a hit in the US where it peaked at #47 but fared much better overseas including numerous Top 10 placings in Europe and a #1 in Australia.

The great Francis Lawrence is to thank for the tune’s glossy video. Stefani – fresh off tour – is shown rushing back into the studio by then-label head Jimmy Iovine; as she’s trying to get rid of writer’s block she gets “inspired” by a very eccentric “dream” based on the tales of Alice In Wonderland.
In this clip, the artist introduced her back-up dancers The Harajuku Girls who are conceptually very important to the ‘L.A.M.B.’ project.

*************

After releasing two singles which failed to make an impact on the charts during the last quarter of 2014, we can only hope that Team Gwen can craft something of this song’s caliber. Something as edgy and unique, both aesthetically and sonically.

Though they all arguably come from the “School of Madonna” we strongly feel Gwen Stefani and her brand of arty, playful, and fashion-forward has paved the way for the GaGa‘s and Katy Perry‘s of the world.

Hopefully, in a very near future she can remind the masses why she made them hollaback before all those female artists could.

madonna saturday night drake

Queen of Pop Madonna is receiving yet another royal backlash courtesy of fans from her rap admirer Drake.

Despite expressing a mutual respect, with the latter even dedicating a song to the music royal on his latest album ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,’ fans have pit the two against each other since their controversial kiss at this year’s Coachella festival.

The story, which had died down, was given a fresh douse of gasoline this weekend when Madge participated in #AskAnythingChat with “Saturday Night Online Live with Romeo” and gave a playful diss of an answer when quizzed on the kiss.

Her response spurred a not-so-innocent response from Drake’s followers:

Tonight brought with it two knockouts:  one of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. challenger Manny Pacquiao and the other of the U.S. national anthem by singer/actor/comedian Jamie Foxx.

Lending his soulful croon to the historic number, Foxx’s organ-accompanied rendition went out with a very unexpected Holy Ghost-inspired bang.

Sending some into a praise, while others (like our friends at VH1) branded the performance “cringe-worthy,” see what we mean and weigh in below:
