Holla Back Girl

“Hollaback Girl” is a song by American recording artist Gwen Stefani from her debut solo album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. (2004). As part of Stefani’s vision of creating “a silly dance record”, the song is influenced by 1980s dance and pop music. The song was written by Stefani, Pharrell Williams, and Chad Hugo as a response to Courtney Love’s statement that Stefani was a “cheerleader” in an interview with Seventeen magazine.

Few times I’ve been around that track,
So it’s not just gonna happen like that,
‘Cause I ain’t no hollaback girl,
I ain’t no hollaback girl.
– Gwen Stefani
