Don’t expect to see Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani sharing more songwriting credits anytime soon.
The 51-year-old “Hollaback Girl” performer was a guest on DJ Khaled’s The First One podcast on Wednesday, March 17. During the episode, she divulged that her 44-year-old fiancé has been helping her nail down the standouts from her latest batch of unreleased songs.
“Yesterday, Blake and I sat down and listened to like every song, which is a lot of songs, and just sort of put our favorite stars by which ones,” Gwen shared. “We definitely bounce off each other.”
Gwen, who just recently released her single “Slow Clap,” explained that she values her longtime significant other’s opinions not only because of his own track record of chart-topping hits, but also because he’s constantly evaluating music of all genres as a coach on The Voice.
“Being on that show, you’re around so much music, and you really know how to choose music, so I really rely on him a lot for his taste,” the No Doubt vocalist continued. “He knows all genres from being on that show. He has a really good ear for hits, or just songs that are the ones that we all like.”
