Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are more in love than ever. As well as previously collaborating on a few love-struck songs, including Nobody But You, Happy Anywhere, and You Make It Feel Like Christmas; Stefani’s latest song, True Babe, is dedicated to her country crooner husband.
The lyrics of True Babe say, "Your tattoo still looks cute to me / Cute to me / We're old news, but you're new to me / New to me / I want to fly to your shows / Want to wake up in your clothes / Come get you tipsy at 6:30 / Want to take tonight slow / Yeah, it's alright in my life / Cause its true babe, true babe / I’m sleeping better next to you babe, you babe / You're something sweet, something true, babe, true, babe / You do it better than they do, babe."
“Honestly, I have been writing a lot of music lately. I feel like that helps me so much with my mental health because a lot of thinking goes into it. Songs can cure you. I also think being creative helps me,” Stefani said in a recent interview with Glamour magazine. “I think that just trying to find balance, you know, in everything, from prayer to exercise to making out with my husband, like all of it.”
When asked about the things with no monetary value that have enriched her life, Stefani responded, “One thing in my life that is not like a money thing that makes my life rich, very, very rich, is obviously the most important thing, love. And I know that sounds cliche, but I spent my whole life trying to find true love, and I have it right now, and it's just been the most incredible thing. And I spent most of my life writing about heartache, and now I'm writing about my love. It's an amazing thing.”
She continued, “I think being able to have, not just like romantic love, but having a family and being a mum and all of those things are just the most important things, and there's no doubt about it.”
True Babe is Stefani’s first release since the 2021 track Slow Clap, which featured Saweetie.
The former No Doubt vocalist collaborated with Swedish production duo Jack & Coke and Los Angeles-based songwriter and producer KThrash for True Babe. It talks about wanting to be next to a significant someone all the time and finding comfort in them.
"My wife put out a new song today... you know... THE GWEN STEFANI!!!!!!! Go listen people!!!! It's a hit," Shelton wrote on Instagram upon release. "I'm so proud of you!!"
The next day, he responded with a video posted to his account. In the clip, Shelton is wearing a camo shirt and backwards cap as he takes on some yard work. "Take this truck and cut up this tree," he sings to the tune of Stefani's True Babe.
Stefani and Shelton began dating in 2015 after meeting as coaches on The Voice U.S. They went public with their relationship in November 2015 before getting engaged last October with a ring hidden in his pick-up truck. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony over the 4th of July weekend in 2021 at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch.
