It’s here! Gwen’s third and new solo album This Is What the Truth Feels Like is now available worldwide.

bigad

Truth is everything we love from Gwen and more. The album features some incredible ballads that she’s known for with empowering lyrics (“Truth”, “Me Without You”, “Rare”), catchy and surprising tracks (“Red Flag”, “Naughty”), and ready-for-radio bangers (“Where Would I Be?”, “Asking 4 It”) all packed in. Truth‘s production is near perfect and we feel confident in saying Gwen has put out yet another solid album to stack against her previous work. She’s back and better than ever — the confidence she radiates throughout Truth is truly inspiring and really showcases what a true artist and songwriter she is.

  1. Listening to it in full now:
    -I’m surprised “Truth” is so good! Way better than it sounded in the snippets.
    -“Where Would I Be” needs to be a single- its fire.
    -I seriously do not get the hate for “Red Flag” its pure Gwen! I love it and find it one of the most catchy and stand out tracks, get a bit of a “Hollaback Girl” vibe from it.
    -The beat on “Asking 4 It” is so sick and current. This needs to be the third or fourth single it could be a big hit.
    -“Naughty” is a skippable track. It just doesn’t flow well in my opinion. I would have put it on the deluxe and replaced it with “Getting Warmer”
    -“Rare” sounds like it could be a No Doubt song. Very flawless song. That bassline with the synths is heaven
    -“Getting Warmer” may be my favorite song on the whole album. Its a crime that its not on the standard edition! It should be a single! Hope she pulls a Britney and releases one of the bonus tracks as a single
    -“Obsessed” is such a bop and a fun/catchy song. I feel like she will never perform it though
    -“Loveable” is an unexpected high. I love gwens voice in it and think its some of her best lyrics on the album. Did anyone else notice that irritating noise during the choruses though? lol

    Overall its an 8/10 album. I really think its comparable to “The Sweet Escape” and a great follow up. Well worth the 10 year wait!

  2. My favorite is Where Would I be?
    The beggind and end of the song sounds like Rock Steady (Rock Steady music, not the record).

  3. My favorite first listen was naughty. It has a major hollaback vibe but with a twist of sass- just a really fun song. There’s a lot of songs (rare, me without you, send me a picture) I love right away but ones I didn’t go crazy for were truth and you’re my favorite. They’ll have to grow on me. Overall- 100% worth the wait and can’t wait to get my hands on the bonus tracks.

  4. Red Flag !!! Love it .. getting warmer … your my favorite … me without you .. misery are all my favs 🙂

    1. Woooohoooo! Absolutely overjoyed that Gwen and TiWtTFL has hit the coveted US iTunes #1 spot. The creative journey leading to this record has been quite remarkable, and after all she’s been through, Gwen definitely deserved this! #1 on iTunes bodes well for the sales of the record, and if she holds onto #1 for the majority of the week, then #1 on Billboard is quite possibly on the cards. Keep in mind that a significant portion of overall sales will be reported at the end of next week by Target (physical copies) and Amazon (physical + digital), and those will be added on top of iTunes sales (plus all other reporting outlets). So please buy ALL your anticipated needed and wanted copies this week. Buy all those birthday and X’mas present copies in advance, lol. The window to get Gwen to #1 on the Billboard 200 is THIS week. Next week, ZAYN’s album drops (3-25-2016). >.<

  5. I also don’t understand why people on ATRL are hating Red Flag, it’s very Gwen and sounds soooo good! It’s one of my favourites. Omg Naughty is sarcastic and amazing! I wasn’t feeling Where Would I Be at 1st but I’m loving it now!

  6. Stand out tracks for me are Obsessed (probably my favorite !), Naughty (amazing revenge song but it could have a stronger chorus) and Red Flag. Red Flag is soooo Gwen, kind of silly but catchy and unique .
    Some songs didn’t grab me right away and kind of floated by, like Rare, but they might grow on me.

  7. It’s hard to chose only one song! I loved every song. But of course there are my opinions for high and low. “Naughty” and “Rocket Ship” are both amazing, but I don’t think that Gwen’s voice sounds good doing those “whoa” and “uuh, uuh, uuh”. It’s only that part after chorus. That’s just it.

  8. … there are so many songs that are fillers(!). All the ballads aren’t as good as “Start A War”… And “Where Yould I Be” sounds like 90’s Ace Of Base (“All That She Wants”)… I don’t know, the whole record is so bland…

    1. IMO, the fact SAW is not in the album makes no difference. Those songs are true Gwen and I love it that way, I was bothered by the fact she was singing someone else words.

          1. … I don’t get it, sorry! 🙁 Gwen wrote all the songs with at least 3 other people. For me the whole record is a collaboration. And “SAW” does not fit in, because it’s much more mature sounding and classier than most of the other tracks.

  9. Wow…this album is sooo modern and new sounds….my favorite songs are Asking 4 it and Naughty ….but I love every song….xD 😀

  10. I agree that its hard to choose a fave the whole album is a gem, truly. Rare is so awesome! Maybe my fave! This album is a banger! Some parts remind me of Lil Wayne Hot Boyz days.

  11. My favorites are WHERE WOULD I BE (I think it should be next single), Send Me A Picture, Naughty, Rare, Rocket Ship, Obsessed… The album is soooo good!

  12. What was she thinking?? Bonus tracks are better than some standard tracks! Seriosuly, what the hell is wrong with HER????

  13. Best Songs!!!!
    2. You’re My Favorite
    3. Where Would I Be?
    5. Truth
    7. Send Me a Picture
    9. Asking 4 It (Feat. Fetty Wap)
    12. Rare

  14. Anyone know if Target got any signed copies.?? I just left there and a girl and her boyfriend were talking to a clerk about it and they went of with him and bought and left.
    A while later I asked the clerk about signed copies send he was vague and noncommittal.

  15. The best song is “You’re my favorite” and I really dig the OLD SCHOOL Gwen voice on “Naughty”!! It sounds so much like “Squeal” or other songs from Beacon Street Collection!

  16. It would be a perfect world if this happened:
    3rd single: Asking 4 It
    4th single: Where Would I Be
    5th single: Rare or Truth

  17. Off topic…how the heck do I get my picture instead of that placeholder photo next to my screen name on here??

  18. Overall, my first impression is it’s a solid album and I think her team did a great job of complimenting her lyrics and singing abilities. I’d say it’s a solid 4/5 stars. These songs blow her 2014 singles with Pharrell out of the water! I’m so glad she didn’t work with him on this. My only critique about her production team is that they overused the “finger snap/clap” effect, but it’s not a big deal. I do wish there was a true ballad on here too. That is one thing that’s lacking.

    Taking it track by track…

    Misery – obviously I love this song and I hope it will be a single. It’s so catchy and I think it will be so much fun live!

    You’re My Favorite – OMG, this should have been the 2nd single. This NEEDS to be a single. I love everything about it! I can totally see remixes of this coming out with guest rappers…hopefully a big name, like Kendrick Lamar.

    Where Would I Be – it’s okay…maybe it will grow on me… I don’t care for the voice effect during the chorus. Doesn’t even sound like her.

    Make Me Like You – good song, but it should not have been the 2nd single. It should have been more like the 4th or 5th single IMO

    Truth – another “meh” track for me… It seems like this track should have closed out the album.

    Used To Love You – obviously I love this song. It’s so raw and honest.

    Send Me A Picture – I can see myself skipping this track in the future. It’s okay…kind of forgettable.

    Red Flag – I don’t hate it like some seem to, but I’m disappointed to be honest. I was hoping for something more juicy or revealing… More of a timeline of “red flags” that Gavin put off. That’s what I assumed the song would be about…

    Asking 4 It – I mean…it’s good, but it’s soooo friggin repetitive LOL Plus the autotune…I dunno, I’ll have to listen to this one more.

    Naughty – excuse my language…but this is fucking awesome! LOL

    Me Without You – another nice mid-tempo type ballad.

    Rare – this seems to be a fan favorite, but I guess I’ll be exception. It’s just okay.

    BONUS TRACKS. I don’t agree that these tracks are better than the ones on the standard edition. I can see why each one is a bonus/leftover track.

    Rocket Ship, Obsessed, Splash – they’re okay. I think Splash would be my favorite of the three.

    Getting Warmer – It sounds like something DJ Snake or Diplo would put out… It sounds so familiar.. it reminds me of a Madonna song off of Rebel Heart.

    Soooo…now where can I get War Paint and Loveable? Can someone post mp3’s for us U.S. residents who are left out? 🙁

    Strange that the album is #1 on iTunes, but the songs haven’t moved much. In fact, Misery dropped. That isn’t a good sign, but I’m still hoping for a #1 album debut.

    1. Thank you so much!! Loveable is amazing!!! Now THAT one should have been on the album! 😀 Do you have War Paint?

  19. No 🙁
    Still trying to get a link. Someone posted one, but it was taken down. If I see it around and if it works, I will post here.

      1. Lisa posted a link to a stream, maybe there’s where Jenny listened to the song.
        But Jenny, if u are around, do you have War Paint on mp3?

  20. Anyone know where can I get the bonus tracks without having to re-buy the album on target? Also Lovable isn’t there… where are we supposed to get that one? Sorry, out of the loop…

    1. Hi Elle! For the US the only way to get them is buying the Target edition. All international markets are getting the bonus tracks from the Target edition, plus Loveable. Only Japan is getting all song and one more song, War Paint. Did you already by the regular US version? If not, try hitting Amazon and checking if they carry the UK version of it.

      1. Thanks for the info Cynthia! Yeah, I already bought the album on iTunes… maybe I’ll just buy the target one too.. kinda stinks, but want to hear those songs! Thanks 🙂

  21. I love the mid-tempo ballads on this track. Haha I am totally feeling like an old fart, 30 year old right now. I really like Misery, Me Without You, and Where Would I Be. I only listened to the album once and not even all the way through. I am a bad fan who is burnt out from a long work week and a kid. I wanted to sit down and read the lyrics as I listened to the songs. However that CD booklet is flashy looking, but terribly difficult to read.

    1. LOL!! I hear ya!! I got to listen to it on the middle of the night, trying to stay awake after doing a zillion house chores and putting the kid to bed 😉

  22. I can honestly say I enjoy every song off of the album. Naughty and Splash grew on me! I don’t think I can rank them to be honest. Its so hard!

  23. I love this album so much! It is 100% Gwen imho, but obviously the 2016 updated version. I was really surprised that it has so many “urban” tracks. I guess Asking 4 It is supposed to be the big pop radio single, but I am not really sure this will work. I think this is the only song on the album that feels a little forced and less personal like the others. I am sure many of the songs she scrapped in 2014 sounded exactly like this one.

  24. I don’t know about you guys…but I want more!! LOL Knowing she has 2-3 more albums worth of material is killing me. I’m really enjoying this album!

  25. Literally obsessed right now lol. Been listening to the album non stop.
    But seriously, don’t let Asking 4 it be the next single!! One of the weakest tracks imo!
    My best to worst:

    GREAT!
    Naughty
    Obsessed
    Getting Warmer
    Red Flag
    Misery

    VERY GOOD
    Me without you
    Where Would I be?
    Make me Like You

    NICE
    You’re my favorite
    Used to love you
    Truth
    Send me a picture
    Rare

    MEH
    Splash
    Asking 4 it
    Rocket Ship
    Loveable

  26. Is anyone else wishing gwen would do a truth tour? I’m dying to hear how these new songs sound live! I’d be so down to have a tour based off the album and have her perform the whole album or at least 10 tracks and then throw in her hits along with a fan fave or 2. Wishful thinking I know haha

  27. I would love for her to come tour in Europe but I know it’s highly unlikely what with her three young children ;-(
    A US tour is more likely but it’d probably be some selected dates and/or centered around California.

  28. How do you guys feel about her using the non-word “buyed” in You’re My Favorite? It was one of the last songs to be recorded… I wonder if they did this on purpose? Surely you don’t hear many people using it… cause it’s not a word at all.

  29. ^i noticed that too. There are certain parts of certain songs that I felt could have used greater development. She mentioned she wrote 2 songs in 4 hours- impressive, but maybe more time spent on lyrics would have delivered less “ohhhs” and “woaaas”.

    Best tracks for me: Rare, Misery, You’re My Favorite, Where Would I Be, MMLY, Truth

    Could use more work: Naughty (chorus seems lazily written) and Red Flag (The signs the signs the signs the signs is just annoying).

    Haven’t heard any bonus tracks cuz I’m lame.

    1. Yes the naughty chorus is cringe worth to me haha really don’t like the song for that reason. It sounds like two different songs put together

  30. Getting a Vegas residency like JLO would be the easiest way for her to have something close to touring that would workout with her family situation.

    1. The thing is…
      Is Gwen big enough for that? I kept thinking the other day, she’s not as big as Jennifer Lopez, Britney, Celine or Mariah (already expecting the backlash…).

      1. It not a question of being bigger or not than those artists, she’s simply isn’t a diva enough lol Gwen doesn’t have a vocal powerhouse and/or impressive dance skills so that’s why I think it wouldn’t work for her tbh.

  31. I think Gwen is best when she’s performing, but I don’t think Vegas would be a good fit. Plus I don’t think she’d want to move her kids with only 50/50 custody.

    I’m hoping she at least does some LA shows this summer!

  32. The naughty chorus does make for a sudden plummet in energy of the song… But the rest is so freaking amazing it still ranks up top. 🙂

    Splash and rocket ship are really growing on me, and Truth is such a gem.
