Gwen Stefani admits that Blake Shelton doesn’t always want to write songs with her, during a chat on DJ Khaled‘s The First One podcast.
Gwen Stefani, 51, has been working on new music and loves collaborating with her fiancé, Blake Shelton, 44, but the “God’s Country” hitmaker seemingly doesn’t always want to write songs with her.
“I wish he would write with me. But he doesn’t really write anymore. We’ve actually. Written three songs together. We wrote a Christmas song together. And then we wrote. Two other songs,” Stefani shared.
“But he just doesn’t like Writing. That much,” she continued. “It makes me so mad.”
The “Rich Girl” singer also touched on how since her time with No Doubt, she’s used to working with a team while creating new music, and try to do the same thing with the country singer, and how the process is much different but still crucial for her.
“When you’re on your own. [But used to] collaborat[ing]. And writing with a bunch of different people. You kind of feel like you need someone. To do that with,” Gwen explained.
She added, “Yesterday. Blake and I sat down and listened. Like, every song. Which is a lot of songs. And just put our favorite stars by which ones. We definitely bounce off each other.”
“I really rely on him a lot. For what his taste is,” she continued. “He knows all genres. From being on [The Voice]. You know what I’m saying? He has a really good ear for hits. Or just songs. That are just the ones. That we all like. So I definitely lean on him a lot.”
