#PlayTime: Gwen Stefani And Pharrell Williams Perform 'Hollaback Girl' 10 Years After Co-Producing The Track

06 May 2014 by


In a bit of a work slump right now? Welcome to #PlayTime, Grazia Daily's new music feature bringing you a different hot track every day of the week. From just-dropped music premieres to cool covers and throwback classics, its the new soundtrack to your afternoon.

We love a bit of throwback Gwen Stefani here at Grazia Daily. We've had this No Doubt vs OutKast duet of 'Hey Baby' from 2002 on repeat for the past month, but today we've got an even more incredible Gwen treat for ya.

The BFF's are joining the judging panel of the US version of The Voice alongside 'Hollaback Girl' co-producer Pharrell Williams. It makes sense then, that the pair took to the stage on the show at the weekend to perform the mega hit TOGETHER.

Now - prepare to feel old - because their performance marks the ten years since the track debuted on Gwen's solo album 'Love. Angel. Music. Baby'. It's rumoured to have been written as a response Courtney Love calling Gwen a 'cheerleader' in an interview with Seventeen magazine. Burrrrrn.

Also while we're at can we just point out that neither Gwen and Pharrell seem to have aged since the track was first released. They are both clearly superhuman.

The video was one of a number that featured Gwen's Harajuku Girls - a move she's since been criticised for. Her performance over the weekend didn't feature them, but it did feature gold playsuit clad dancers, Pharrell wearing an amaze Disney jumper and a whole heap of attitude. It reminded us of the sheer brilliance (and catchiness) of the classic pop track. B.A.N.A.N.A.S.
