Gwen Stefani has called in the lyrical talents of west coast rapper Saweetie for a new version of  “Slow Clap,” which also comes with an electric, high school-themed music video.

Featuring vibrant colors and equally bright verses, Gwen Stefani proves how elite of a collaborator she is by calling in Saweetie to add a whole new flavor to the song. The Voice judge has made a living off having a great ear for different sounds, and the meshing of her patented pop vocals with Saweetie’s rap rhythms makes for a unique song.

The two superstars shared news of the collaboration on their respective Instagram pages, dropping teasers for the bright visuals.

It’s great to hear Saweetie on a new track, especially following the tumultuous last few weeks that the rapper has had. After a very public break up with her ex-boyfriend Quavo, video footage surfaced from an altercation between the two in an elevator that reportedly happened a year prior.

Following the footage going viral on social media, Saweetie issued a statement clarifying that the incident happened a year ago. The two had since reconciled from that specific disagreement but were still broken up. 

Quavo also released a statement mirroring much of Saweetie’s sentiments. However, regardless of what’s going on in her personal life, Saweetie has always been able to still deliver on the mic.
