GWEN STEFANI AND SAWEETIE TEAM UP ON EMPOWERING “SLOW CLAP”

Watch the video for “Slow Clap” HERE 

Global superstar Gwen Stefani adds yet another iconic pop collaboration to her catalog with the release of Slow Clap” featuring the multi-platinum rap star Saweetie. The empowering track, Stefani’s first single of 2021, is inspired by a mash up of sounds with Saweetie’s unabashed verses. “Slow Clap” featuring Saweetie is available now at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.

The “Slow Clap” video was directed by Sophie Muller, a long-time Stefani collaborator who also helmed the memorable clips for No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” and Gwen’s solo track “Wind It Up.” Watch the energetic video HERE.

With lyrics about embracing resilience and staying confident despite feeling like an underdog, “Slow Clap” is classic Gwen: “Been the champion, rang the bell / Rocked the bottom, been through hell,” she sings. “Climbed the mountain, now I’m well / I just feel like coming back for the belt.”  Saweetie, whose forthcoming debut album featuring recent drops with Doja Cat (“Best Friend”) and Demi Lovato (“My Girlfriends Are My Boyfriend”), reinforces this confidence with bold and unapologetic lines: “My favorite position is CEO check the stats / Me and Gwen Stefani snatchin’ wigs on the track.”

“Slow Clap” builds on the momentum of “Let Me Reintroduce Myself,”which reached No. 1 on the iTunes chart upon its release. In 2020, Stefani also had two No. 1 hits on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart with fiancé Blake Shelton, “Nobody but You” and “Happy Anywhere,” and reissued her holiday album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, with two new songs, including “Here This Christmas” co-written with Ryan Tedder.

A three-time GRAMMY Award winner, Stefani has achieved global success as a performer, songwriter, and frontwoman of No Doubt, and a multi-platinum solo artist, among other accomplishments. To date, she’s sold more than 50 million units worldwide. Her 2015 solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. She also spent five seasons as a coach on the Emmy-winning NBC series The Voice where she led contestant Carter Rubin to be crowned the season 19 winner. The classic warmth of “Slow Clap” sets the tone for what fans can expect from Stefani as she plans to release more music this year.

Coaches alone choose the winner to advance from their team. Each coach has one steal in the Knockouts.

Additionally, the four artists that were saved by their individual coaches during the Battle Rounds will compete in the Four-Way Knockout. Each of the four artists will receive individualized coaching and rehearsals with their coach and Snoop Dogg in preparation for the Four-Way Knockout. However, the winner will ultimately be chosen by America. At the top of the final Knockouts episode, voting will open for America to choose which of the four artists moves forward in the competition after their performances. Then, at the beginning of the first Live Show, host Carson Daly will reveal which of the four artists was voted through by America, and that artist will continue to the Live Shows with their original team.

An entertainment icon, Snoop Dogg has reigned for nearly three decades as an unparalleled force, who has raised the bar as an award-winning entertainer and globally recognized entrepreneur. Snoop defines entertainment history. He has released 19 studio albums, sold over 40 million albums worldwide, reached No. 1 countless times on Billboard charts internationally and received 20 Grammy nominations. 

Snoop has also appeared in numerous films, such as, Dolemite Is My Name, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, The Addams Family, Beach Bum, Starsky & Hutch, Soul Plane and the Oscar-winning drama Training Day, among others.

A Grammy-winning, multi-platinum recording artist and international superstar, Ariana Grande was the first artist to hold the top three Billboard Hot 100 spots since the Beatles in 1964 with “7 Rings,” “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” and “Thank U, Next.” In 2020, she became the first and only artist to have five singles debuts at #1 in the chart’s history. At age 27, she has delivered five platinum-selling albums and surpassed 35 billion streams – she’s Spotify’s most-streamed female artist of the past decade – while rapidly becoming one of the biggest pop stars of our generation with her powerhouse vocals and unmatched presence both on stage and with her fans.

ABOUT SHENANDOAH:
GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-winning hitmakers Shenandoah, fueled by Marty Raybon’s distinctive vocals and the band’s skilled musicianship, are celebrated for delivering such hits as “Two Dozen Roses”, “Church on Cumberland Road” and “Next to You, Next to Me” as well as such achingly beautiful classics as “I Want to be Loved Like That” and the GRAMMY® winning “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart” duet with Alison Krauss. Today that legacy continues as original members Marty Raybon and Mike McGuire launch a new chapter in Shenandoah’s storied career with Every Road, available everywhere Nov. 13, 2020. Raybon and McGuire formed Shenandoah in 1984 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with bassist Ralph Ezell, keyboardist Stan Thorn and guitarist Jim Seales. Shenandoah inked a deal with Columbia Records and began establishing a national fan base with their self-titled debut in 1987. However, it was the band’s sophomore effort, The Road Not Taken, that spawned their first top ten hits—“She Doesn’t Cry Anymore” and “Mama Knows.” Shenandoah followed with three consecutive No. 1 hits—“Church on Cumberland Road,” “Sunday in the South” and “Two Dozen Roses.” “The Church on Cumberland Road” spent two weeks at the top of the chart and made country music history as it marked the first time that a country band’s first No. 1 single spent more than one week at the summit. It also helped propel sales of the album to more than half a million units thus giving Shenandoah their first gold album. Shenandoah became known for delivering songs that celebrated the importance of faith and family while reveling in the joys of small town life. “Next to You, Next to Me” topped the charts for three weeks and “Somewhere in the Vicinity of the Heart,” a beautiful duet with Alison Krauss, won a Country Music Association Award for Vocal Event of the year and a GRAMMY® for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Shenandoah also won the Academy of Country Music’s Vocal Group of the Year in 1991.

Fritz Chesnut, Frank Gehry and Norman Lear will also participate, and South Bay Children’s Choir will perform.

Elizabeth Benson Forer, the CEO of Venice Family Clinic, said the 50th anniversary will be “dazzling.”

“We have an incredible cast of gifted and generous singers, songwriters, actors and artists donating their time and talents to our Kickoff Party,” she said, adding that Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and Frank Gehry have personally helped Venice Family Clinic in the past. “We’re proud to welcome them and so many other celebrities who have contributed to our mission over the years.”

After the celebration, Venice Family Clinic asks volunteers to help in a Week of Action. The Clinic helps 28,000 low-income men, women and children, and volunteers can help in a multitude of ways.

For those practicing social distancing, donations are accepted. Volunteers can also order toys and other gifts online for the Clinic to deliver to people facing financial hardship this upcoming holiday season. The Clinic’s pediatric patients are also in need of school supplies, so a backpack filled with notebooks, folders, pencils and other items is a great idea to help students get through the year. Finally, soap, shampoo and hygiene items are perfect to help individuals experiencing homelessness.

The drop-off site for donations is Venice Family Clinic’s Santa Monica location. Donations will be accepted there from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 15. It is located at 2509 Pico Blvd., Santa Monica, CA 90405.
