Gwen Stefani f/ Pharrell “Shine”

It’s not of the “Hollaback Girl” vibe but it’s Gwen & P connecting again for a soul-searching song of substance with “Shine” (alliteration intended).

“Shine” will appear on the upcoming movie soundtrack for Paddington (off theĀ Paddington Bear series) and even in its low quality leak version below, I sense a bigger feel for the song that’s fit for the movie. I like Gwen’s repetition and different delivery of the word “Shine” and Pharrell adds a nice touch at the end.

Borderline *Tibs Fav. as I await a CDQ early in 2015. Fans of one or both will enjoy.

Shine into ’15 ya’ll!
