Love. Angel. Music. Baby. is the debut solo studio album by American singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani, released on November 12, 2004 by Interscope Records. After making guest appearances on songs by other artists during her time with No Doubt, Stefani began recording solo material in early 2003. Originally planned as a small side project for Stefani, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. eventually grew into her first solo album, following No Doubt's hiatus. Stefani co-wrote every song on the album, while collaborating with numerous writers and producers, including Linda Perry, Dallas Austin, The Neptunes, André 3000, and Dr. Dre.

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. was designed as an updated version of a 1980s record, and was influenced by artists such as early Madonna, New Order, Cyndi Lauper, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, Debbie Deb, and Club Nouveau. The album has a diverse musical style that incorporates genres such as electropop, dance-rock, new wave, hip hop, and R&B. Most of the songs on the album are thematically focused on fashion and wealth. The album introduced the Harajuku Girls, four backup dancers who dress in Stefani's interpretation of the youth fashion trends of Harajuku, a district in Tokyo, Japan.

The album was met with generally favorable reviews from contemporary music critics. Love. Angel. Music. Baby. debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 309,000 copies, eventually peaking at number five. It earned multi-platinum certifications in several countries, and has sold seven million copies worldwide. The album spawned six singles, and garnered six Grammy Award nominations in 2005 and 2006, including Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. In support of the album, Stefani embarked on the Harajuku Lovers Tour in 2005, visiting 42 dates across North America.

Background and development[edit]

During Stefani's time with No Doubt, she began making solo appearances on albums by artists including Eve and Moby. In the production of its fifth studio album, Rock Steady (2001), No Doubt collaborated with Prince, The Neptunes, and David A. Stewart on different songs and had Mark "Spike" Stent mix the album. While the band was on tour to promote the album, Stefani listened to Club Nouveau's 1987 single "Why You Treat Me So Bad" and considered recording material that modernized 1980s music.[1] She approached No Doubt bassist and former boyfriend Tony Kanal, who had introduced her to music by Prince, Lisa and Cult Jam, and Debbie Deb, and they talked about producing songs from Kanal's bedroom.[2]

In early 2003, Stefani began recording solo material.[3] She stated that she was considering recording singles to be used on soundtracks, later playing Jean Harlow in The Aviator; continuing her series of collaborations; or releasing an album under the pseudonym GS.[3][4] Jimmy Iovine, chairman and co-founder of Interscope, convinced Stefani to produce a complete studio album.[4] During her first sessions with Linda Perry, Stefani's combination of self-consciousness and writer's block resulted in an unfruitful attempt. On the second day, the two wrote a song about Stefani's writer's block and fear to make her solo album, which became "What You Waiting For?", the lead single.[5]

When the two began working on a song that Stefani stated was too personal, she left to visit Kanal. He played her a track on which he had been working and which became "Crash", the album's final single. The two tried to write new material, but gave up after two weeks. They did not return to work until six months later, when Stefani began collaborating with other artists, commenting, "If I were to write the chorus of 'Yesterday' by the Beatles, and that's all I wrote, that would be good enough to be part of that history." Stefani resumed work with Linda Perry, who invited Dallas Austin, and many other artists, including Outkast's André 3000, The Neptunes, and Dr. Dre.[5][6] Stefani announced the album's release in early 2004,[7] marketing it as a "dance record" and a "guilty pleasure".[1]

Composition[edit]

Music and lyrics[edit]

Many of the songs are about fashion and wealth

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. takes influence from a variety of 1980s genres to the extent that one reviewer commented, "The only significant '80s radio style skipped is the ska punk revival that No Doubt rode to success".[8] Several songs employ synthesizer sounds characteristic of music from the 1980s.[9] The album combines music genres such as electropop,[10] dance-rock, soul[11] hip hop, R&B, and disco.[12] New wave, present in some of No Doubt's later work, continues to be incorporated into Love. Angel. Music. Baby.,[13] drawing comparisons to The Go-Go's and Cyndi Lauper.[14] Stefani cited Club Nouveau, Depeche Mode, Lisa Lisa, Prince, New Order, The Cure, and early Madonna as major influences for the album.[13]

Like pop albums of the 1980s, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. focuses primarily on money, with songs such as "Rich Girl" and "Luxurious" that feature descriptions of riches and wealth.[15] The album contains several references to Stefani's clothing line, L.A.M.B.,[15] and alludes to contemporary fashion designers such as John Galliano, Rei Kawakubo, and Vivienne Westwood.[16] Stefani also released a series of dolls named the "Love. Angel. Music. Baby. Fashion Dolls", designed after the costumes from her tour.[17] Although Stefani intended for the album to be a light dance record, she stated that "no matter what you do, things just come out."[18] The album's opening track "What You Waiting For?" discusses her desire to be a mother and in 2006, she and her husband, Bush singer Gavin Rossdale, had a son named Kingston Rossdale.[19] The fourth track "Cool" discusses Stefani's friendship with Kanal after he ended a romantic relationship with her in 1995.[20]

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. introduced the Harajuku Girls, an entourage of four Japanese women whom Stefani referred to as a figment of her imagination.[21] The Harajuku Girls are discussed in several of the songs, including one named after and entirely dedicated to them. They appear in most of the music videos produced for the album and those for Stefani's second album The Sweet Escape (2006). Love. Angel. Music. Baby. includes various styles of music. Many songs are influenced by electro beats designed for club play.[22] Producers Austin and Kanal incorporated R&B into the song "Luxurious" which contains a sample of The Isley Brothers' 1983 single "Between the Sheets". Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis incorporate new jack swing, a fusion genre of R&B that the pair had developed and popularized during the mid-1980s.[23]

Songs[edit]

The album's lead single is an electropop song about Stefani's fears on a solo career.[24]

The album's best-selling single,[25] a dance-pop song with a cheerleading motif.

"Cool" is a synthpop and new wave song chronicling Stefani's previous relationship with Tony Kanal.[18]

The album opens with "What You Waiting For?", an electropop, new wave, dance-rock, and funk song.[26][27][28] Lyrically, the song discusses Stefani's fears of beginning a solo career.[24] "Rich Girl", a collaboration with rapper Eve, is a dancehall and reggae reworking of the English duo Louchie Lou & Michie One's 1994 song "If I Was a Rich Girl", which itself interpolates the song "If I Were a Rich Man" from the 1964 musical Fiddler on the Roof.[6] The Neptunes-produced track "Hollaback Girl" combines 1980s hip hop with dance music.[29] It was written as a response to a derogatory comment that grunge musician Courtney Love made, referring to Stefani as a cheerleader.[30]

The fourth track "Cool" chronicles Stefani's previous relationship with Tony Kanal,[18] featuring a new wave and synthpop production.[15] The song was compared to Cyndi Lauper and Madonna songs from the 1980s.[14][31] "Bubble Pop Electric", the fifth track, is an electro song featuring André 3000's alias Johnny Vulture. It tells of the two having sex at a drive-in movie, and it was generally well received by critics, who drew comparisons to the 1978 film Grease and its 1982 sequel Grease 2.[32][33] "Luxurious" is a 1990s-inspired R&B song that lyrically talks about the desire to be rich in love, simultaneously comparing Stefani's lover with luxuries.[34][35] The seventh track, "Harajuku Girls", is a synthpop song that was described as a tribute to Tokyo's street culture,[36] produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.[14]

"Crash" is an electroclash song that uses automobile metaphors to describe a relationship.[9][37] "The Real Thing" was described as a vintage Europop song,[9] and features guest appearances from New Order vocalist Bernard Sumner and bassist Peter Hook.[38] The next track, the synthpop song "Serious",[39] drew comparisons to Madonna's work during the early 1980s.[40] A music video was produced for the song, but it was never officially released, although a snippet of the video surfaced on YouTube in October 2006.[41] "Danger Zone", an electro-rock song,[14] was widely interpreted to be about Stefani's husband Gavin Rossdale having an illegitimate daughter;[15] however, the song had been written before the discovery.[42] The closing track "Long Way to Go" is an outtake from André 3000's album The Love Below (2003).[31] The song discusses interracial dating and uses a sample of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech.[43]

Promotion[edit]

Main article: Harajuku Lovers Tour

Stefani embarked on the Harajuku Lovers Tour on October 16, 2005 to promote Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The tour consisted of only one leg, running for 42 dates across North America, ending on December 21, 2005. The hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas, rapper M.I.A., and singer Ciara accompanied Stefani as opening acts for her tour. The tour was met with varying responses from contemporary critics, who despite praising Stefani's vocals, were critical of other aspects of the show such as its musical material. According to Billboard, the tour grossed $22 million from 37 shows, 20 of which sold out.[44] A video album of the concert titled Harajuku Lovers Live was released on DVD on December 4, 2006.

Singles[edit]

"What You Waiting For?" was released as the lead single from Love. Angel. Music. Baby. on September 28, 2004. The single peaked at number 47 on the Billboard Hot 100,[45] and was commercially successful overseas, topping the chart in Australia and reaching the top 10 in several countries including France, Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.[46][47] "Rich Girl", featuring Eve, was released as the album's second single on December 14, 2004, becoming Stefani's first top-10 hit as a solo artist in the US when it peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100.[45] Elsewhere, the song performed equally as successfully as "What You Waiting For?".[48] "Hollaback Girl" was released as the third single on March 15, 2005. It became the album's best-selling and most popular single, while also becoming the first single to sell one million digital downloads in the US.[25][49] The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 within six weeks of its release, earning Stefani her first number-one single on the chart.[45]

"Cool" was released as the fourth single from the album on July 5, 2005.[50] The song fared moderately on the charts, reaching the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand, as well as the top 20 in Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Norway, the UK and the US.[45][47][51] "Luxurious" was released as the fifth single in October 2005. The single version features rapper Slim Thug.[35] The song was less successful than the previous singles from the album, peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100.[45] "Crash" was not originally planned as a single, but due to Stefani's pregnancy, her second solo album was delayed,[52] and the song was released as the sixth and final single from the album on January 24, 2006.[53]

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. received generally positive reviews from contemporary pop music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted mean rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 71, based on 22 reviews.[54] Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic called the album "intermittently exciting and embarrassing", concluding that it is "stranger and often more entertaining than nearly any other mainstream pop album of 2004."[22] Jennifer Nine of Yahoo! Music praised the album as "the hottest, coolest, best-dressed pop album of the year" and found it to be "sleek, shimmery, and dripping with all-killer-no-filler musical bling".[59] Stylus Magazine's Charles Merwin opined that Stefani was a contender to fill Madonna's role, "[b]ut not enough to get seriously excited about her as the next great solo female careerist."[23] Lisa Haines of BBC Music was more emphatic, stating that Stefani rivaled Madonna and Kelis, while dubbing the album a "stunning and stylish effort that showcases Gwen's credentials as a bonafide pop goddess."[40]

Despite stating that Stefani "shamelessly plunders" 1980s music, Krissi Murison of the NME referred to the album as "one of the most frivolously brilliant slabs of shiny retro-pop anyone's had the chuzpah to release all year."[56] John Murphy of musicOMH found the album "enjoyable, if patchy", but commented that it was too long.[60] Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield described the album as "an irresistible party: trashy, hedonistic and deeply weird."[57] The magazine later placed the album at number 39 on its list of the top 50 albums of 2004.[61] Robert Christgau gave the album a three-star honorable mention ((3-star Honorable Mention)) and wrote, "Turns out the problem wasn't ska per se—it was No Doubt."[62] Edna Gundersen of USA Today called the album "[f]un, fizzy, frivolous", while noting that Stefani's "caffeinated electro-pop amounts to little more than sly channeling of Lisa Lisa at a disco revival."[58] Kelefa Sanneh of The New York Times viewed it as a "clever and sometimes enticing solo debut that doesn't quite add up."[63]

The album was generally criticized for its large number of collaborations and producers. The Guardian's Caroline Sullivan argued that although "others lend a hand [...] it's very much Stefani's show"; however, most others disagreed.[55] Jason Damas of PopMatters compared the album to a second No Doubt greatest hits album,[14] and Pitchfork Media's Nick Sylvester felt that the large number of collaborators result in sacrificing Stefani's identity on the album.[43] Anthony Carew of Neumu expressed that the album's fragmentation kept it from being "a bright-and-shiny pop-music tour-de-force".[64] Most reviewers held that the collaborations prevented the album from having a solidified sound. Eric Greenwood wrote for Drawer B that "Stefani tries to be all things to all people here", but that the result "comes off as manipulative and contrived."[65] Entertainment Weekly's David Browne shared this opinion, stating that the album "is like one of those au courant retail magazines that resembles a catalog more than an old-fashioned collection of, say, articles."[15]

Many reviewers focused on the album's light lyrical themes. Entertainment Weekly called the references to Stefani's clothing line "shameless" and stated that "each song becomes akin to a pricey retro fashion blurb",[15] and Pitchfork Media quipped that "the Joker's free-money parade through Gotham City was a much more entertaining display of wealth, and he had Prince, not just Wendy & Lisa."[43] Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine commented that the album's "fashion fetish [...] gives the album a sense of thematic cohesiveness" but that the "obsession with Harajuku girls borders on maniacal".[9] The Guardian disagreed with this perspective, arguing that "her affinity with Japanese pop culture [...] yields a synthetic sheen [...] that works well with the other point of reference, hip-hop."[55]

Accolades[edit]

At the Billboard Music Awards, Stefani won the Digital Song of the Year award for "Hollaback Girl" and the New Artist of the Year Award, and she performed "Luxurious" with Slim Thug at the event.[66] At the 2005 Grammy Awards, Stefani received a nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "What You Waiting For?"[67] and performed "Rich Girl" with Eve.[68] At the next year's awards, Stefani received five nominations for Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.[69]

Commercial performance[edit]

Love. Angel. Music. Baby. debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200, selling 309,000 copies in its first week.[70] On the issue dated June 18, 2005, the album climbed to a new peak position of number five with 83,000 copies sold.[71] The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the album triple platinum that December,[72] and had sold four million copies by May 2009.[73]

The album had similar success in Europe. After entering the UK Albums Chart at number 14 with sales of 45,484 copies,[74] Love. Angel. Music. Baby. peaked at number four in its 25th week on the chart, on May 15, 2005, selling 21,271 copies.[75] The album was certified triple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) on September 16, 2005,[76] and had sold 1,013,000 copies in the United Kingdom as of February 2007.[77] The album was listed as the twentieth best-selling album of 2005 in the UK.[78] It also reached the top 10 in Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, and Sweden, and the top 20 in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, and Switzerland.[79][80] The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) certified the album platinum in May 2005, denoting sales in excess of one million copies across Europe.[81]

In Australia, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. topped the ARIA Albums Chart for two consecutive weeks in February 2005 and spent 56 weeks on the chart.[82] It ended 2005 as the fourth best-selling album,[83] and was certified quadruple platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) for shipments of 280,000 copies.[84] The album peaked at number three for two non-consecutive weeks on the Canadian Albums Chart,[85] and was certified five-times platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) in April 2006 for sales of over half a million copies.[86] Love. Angel. Music. Baby. had sold seven million copies worldwide as of November 2006,[87] and became the 12th best-selling album globally of 2005.[88]

Impact[edit]

The success of the album's urban contemporary-oriented songs in the adult contemporary market allowed for the success of other artists while Stefani was pregnant and later recording The Sweet Escape. Nelly Furtado's third album Loose was released in June 2006 and was primarily produced by and written with hip hop producers Timbaland and Danja. Furtado's reinvention from a worldbeat singer-songwriter was to Stefani's previous forays into urban contemporary music.[89] In his review of Loose, Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone stated that Timbaland aimed to "produce an omnipop multiformat blockbuster in the style of [Love. Angel. Music. Baby.]—but without Gwen."[90] The Black Eyed Peas member Fergie released her solo debut album The Dutchess in September 2006. The cholas that accompanied Fergie in some of her music videos were viewed as derivatives of the Harajuku Girls and Stefani's "Luxurious" music video.[91] The album's lead single "London Bridge" was paralleled to "Hollaback Girl" and the third single "Glamorous" to "Luxurious".[92] Fergie refuted accusations of piggybacking on Stefani's music, stating that "this is all so ridiculous [...] The Peas and I make music we love, and for others to speculate is their problem."[91]
