Today marks the 11th anniversary release of Gwen’s debut and iconic solo album, Love.Angel.Music.Baby. The album was released on this day back in 2004 to eager and curious fans all over the world. Gwen started to come up with ideas directly after touring with No Doubt in 2003 for an inspired dance record of her own.

The album launched many hit singles: “What You Waiting For?”, “Rich Girl”, “Cool”, “Luxurious”, “Crash” and “Hollaback Girl”, which made history by being the first digital single to sell over 1,000,000 copies. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. also spawned a super successful US tour (Harajuku Lovers Live was released the following year on DVD), tons of notable performances and appearances and awards and nominations for the album including Grammy and Billboard Awards.

Gwen collaborated with many hot producers and writers at the time that included Linda Perry, Andre 3000 (of Outkast), Dr. Dre, Dallas Austin, The Neptunes and even Tony. The album debuted at #7 on the Billboard charts selling over 300,000+ copies it’s first week. Currently, Love.Angel.Music.Baby. has sold over 7 million albums worldwide.

Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is a pop classic and we’re really thankful that Gwen stepped out of her comfort zone and created some incredible music. This album era was also the beginning of Gwen’s fashion empires and also spawned leftovers and ideas that would go into a second solo adventure with The Sweet Escape in 2006.

  1. “Long Way To Go” is the worst song ever… I’m sorry, I’ve probably only listened that song like 2 or 3 times since LAMB was released. It’s just… horrible! I wish that song had been replaced by “Wonderful Life” or “Wind It Up”…

    On the other hand, “Serious” is one of her best solo songs. I love it, it sounds like Kylie Minogue’s “Fever”.

  2. Yeah Long Way To Go is possibly her worst solo song, aside from maybe STF. This album has aged so well so far, a lot of these songs could be hits today., She really changed the sound of popular music for years to come with this album, it deserves more credit.

  3. ^^^Lisa I totally agree that she deserves more credit with this album!!

    “Long way to go” I think is great!! I LOOOVE Andre 3000!! Her worst songs for me are STF of course and ‘Breaking up’

  4. “Long way to go” her worst song?! You guys obviously forgot about “Breaking up” lol. Naah LWTG is amazing imho.
