From heartbreak to hit song! As Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani helped each other through their divorces, they turned their heartache into one epic collaboration. Get EXCLUSIVE details about their new duet right here!
As if being a couple and a Voice coach/mentor pairing isn’t adorable enough, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have officially collaborated on a song together too! But rather than writing about how in love they are, Blake, 39, and Gwen, 46, instead created a track inspired by the heartache they were both going through. We have the story behind their duet for you — and how they used their heartache to create an amazing song!
“[The duet] was their secret project for the first two months, before they brought in some other producers,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They really bonded and solidified their relationship over this song because they both drew material from their past relationships and spent a lot of time discussing their heartaches and what would work in the song.”
Aww, that is just too sweet! Blake and Gwen haven’t been shy about admitting that they helped each other through their divorces before they started dating in November 2015, but it sounds like they even turned their discussions into a song. Talk about giving fans insight into their love life!
So when will we get to hear their beautiful voices come together in a song? On May 20, when Blake’s new album drops! In fact, Gwen just revealed the name of the song on Twitter April 19! Titled, “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” there is no denying that their duet is about their exes (Miranda Lambert and Gavin Rossdale) and the heartache Blake and Gwen went through.
Judging by the “eeeekkkk” hashtag Gwen included in her tweet about their collab, she can’t wait for fans to hear their heartbreak-inspired tune. But Blake is probably even more pumped, because it was originally his idea to do the duet! Plus, our source said that they recorded the track back in January after working on it since the fall, so they are the most ready of anyone to put the song out. It certainly sounds like one heck of a juicy song, and we are so excited to hear it!
