In a new interview with Billboard, Eve speaks highly of Gwen saying that she always wanted to collaborate for “Let Me Blow Ya Mind”. Eve says that she’s always been a fan No Doubt and felt like herself and Gwen were very similar.
Billboard — “After I wrote it, I knew I wanted Gwen Stefani. She was a label mate, and I had been a fan of hers and No Doubt for years. People thought I was crazy. They’d say, ‘She’s not going to want to do it.’ Although we were so different, I felt like she was just like me. She was a tomboy who was a girly girl, and never had the chance to hang out with girly girls ’cause she was around these guys. But it happened and I proved people wrong. It was nice to do so also, especially to bunch of guys.”
