Gwen Stefani had a huge surprise for her fans. On Monday, May 24, she announced her Las Vegas residency. That’s right. The “Hollaback Girl” singer is returning to the stage. Earlier this month, Gwen released the remix of her new single “Slow Clap” with rapper Saweetie.
Unbeknownst to them, the music video was met with backlash. Gwen’s name trended on social media for all the wrong reasons. People accused her of culturally appropriating the hip-hop community. Regardless, Gwen is writing music for her forthcoming album, which does not have a name or a release date.
Still, that’s not stopping her from returning to the stage.
