This Is Why a Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton Duet ‘May Never Happen Again’
According to the country crooner, it was a once-in-a-lifetime moment to work on a song with someone other than their usual respective writing teams. The couple, who both went through highly-publicized divorces last year, only got together for a duet, titled “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,’ because the track was very near and dear to their hearts.
“[The song] is very personal for us both because, you know, we obviously have this bond that is remarkable together,” Shelton, 39, told Entertainment Tonight. “But the fact that we wrote a song together… I know that I don’t co-write that much because I’m very insecure about it I guess and [Stefani’s] kind of got her circle of people that she writes with. But for us to reach out to each other as writers, it may never happen again, who knows.”
He added, “I hesitate to brag on it too much but I really think that it’s as good of a song as I’ve ever written in my life.”
Stefani, 46, was actually the one who revealed that their duet was coming out in a tweet shared earlier this week. Posting the track listing for Shelton’s new record, If I’m Honest, the No Doubt frontwoman gushed about having her name appear on the back of the LP.
