Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are back to release a new, old collaboration that they’ve kept in their pocket since before recording their latest Platinum-certified duet “Nobody But You”. The song peaked at #1 on the Billboard country charts in December after nearly 30 weeks of climbing to the top. And, their first partner project “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” from Shelton’s 2016 If I’m Being Honest album, hit #2 on the same chart in May 2016.
Now, the Oklahoma-native and newly settled Oklahoman, Stefani, seemed to have been inspired by their unexpected, socially distanced vacation to finally let the world hear this resilient love story that could not have been better equipped for the couple of five years.
“Happy Anywhere” takes a different spin on Kane Brown’s #1 Billboard hit “Homesick”. Rather than not being together, Josh Osborne, Matt Jenkins, and Ross Copperman narrate a story in which home is wherever the other person is. And, wherever one is, the other follows.
“I’m running wide open / I was born with my feet in motion / But since I met you, I swear / I could be happy anywhere / Any map dot location / You’re always my destination / You’re the only thing that I’m chained to / I could be happy anywhere / I could be happy anywhere with you”
This song marks their fourth collaboration together, counting Stefani’s 2018 Christmas album You Make It Feel Like Christmas that involved Shelton in the title track; which peaked at #3 on the Hot100 Billboard chart. And, because of the positive response of their successful musical partnerships, there’s bound to be more after this one. This certainly won’t be the last.
Directed by Todd Stefani, the music video includes a series of videos that Shelton and Stefani recorded themselves during their time in California and Oklahoma. It’s a truly entertaining watch that involves sweet moments from the couple as well as Shelton’s well-known humor in addition to snippets of a relaxed, casual performance of the song itself.
