Interscope has confirmed that “Baby Don’t Lie” will be released on Sunday, October 19.
In a new Q&A with Billboard, they have confirmed reports from Interscope that Gwen’s hyped probable new single “Baby Don’t Lie” has been delayed with no scheduled release date as of now. Interscope wrote in an email to Billboard saying “Please remove the add date. Will get new information shortly” back on September 30.
“Baby Don’t Lie”, co-written with Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco, was said to be impacting radio starting Tuesday, October 14, but soon saw the add dates disappearing online. Gwen’s manager confirmed to Billboard in September that she was still deciding on a lead single and was working hard to have her new album out in December. Inside sources are saying that “Baby Don’t Lie” should still be the lead single but the release date is being worked out to coincide with The Voice for promotion purposes.
Though “Baby Don’t Lie” has yet to be announced by either Gwen or Interscope (until now), the song has made its way to several radio stations and has been described as “top 40” and features a â€œdriving beatâ€ with â€œcrazy catchy, repetitive vocal lines in the chorusâ€. Gwen has also reportedly been on-set of two music videos in the last few weeks possibly for two different songs.
