Okay, Gwen. I see you. I see that you’re taking this solo comeback seriously now. After last years lukewarm “Baby Don’t Lie” and “Spark the Fire,” Gwen is taking us, her fans, seriously once again. I tried so hard to like “Baby Don’t Lie,” but it was a shame. I couldn’t even pretend to like it. It was just so whatever to me. “Spark the Fire” I liked for a week, if I remember correctly. My bf kept asking me to stop trying to make him like the song, so I obliged.
“Make Me Like You” follows Gwen’s first official single “Used To Love You” off of her forthcoming album “This Is What the Truth Feels Like” due March 18th. “Make Me Like You” is very Gwen; funky melody, throwback sound, and the poppiest of pop. I mean, if you’re going to dabble in pop music, might as well do it right. Right?
The video is cute too. A live video that was shot during a commercial break during the Grammy Awards, the video had set changes, costume changes, dancers, confetti, and the Target logo. Yeah, I get that Target paid for the video, but dang, at least use some Threshold furniture or use a bottle of up&up lotion for your elbows. Be discreet about the sponsorship in the video. But, its cute.
