Wait a minute…
It hadn’t occurred to us when we featured Gwen Stefani as the star of Wednesday’s BH Buzz that her upcoming single, “Make Me Like You,” could see a live debut with a surprise performance at the Grammys. According All Access, the song is set to drop on Feb. 16, one day after the Grammys air.
In a new interview with Zane Lowe, Stefani says of writing the song: “We were losing our minds. It was called ‘Make Me Like You’ and we couldn’t believe it. Like how did we write this song? It’s so good!”
Then we had a flashback to a report we conjured up last month speculating whether Stefani would perform at the Grammys. Choreographer Tricia Miranda posted a photo of she and Stefani with a group of dancers inside Millennium Dance Studio in L.A. at the time, but realized after she might’ve ruined Stefani’s impending announcement. She captioned the pic “Love my team! Thank you for a great day of work… Thank you @mdcdance for having us and thank you to all the dancers today that inspired me and have now made my job extremely hard… I love it #gwenstefaniauditions #grammys.” The post was since deleted, but we saved a screen capture of it:
“Make Me Like You” is reportedly produced by Mattman & Robin, who are partly responsible for Selena Gomez’s “Hands To Myself,” “All You Had To Do Was Stay” off Taylor Swift’s 1989, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me,” Adam Lambert’s “The Original High,” Tove Lo’s “Moments” and more.
And for good measure… Stefani recently hit up the recording studio with Stargate.
