Gwen Stefani relaunched her solo career with a tear-jerker of a track called "I Used to Love You," clearly aimed at ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. But her second single is sunny, happy, and jam-packed with lyrics that seem to praise her new boyfriend, fellow The Voice judge Blake Shelton. 

"Make Me Like You" is all about meeting someone new after having your heart broken. Sound familiar? The lyrics have Blake Shelton written all over it, especially in the first verse:

I was fine before I met you

I was broken but fine

I was lost and uncertain

But my heart was still mine

I was free before I met you

I was broken but free

All alone in the clear view, but now you are all I see

Shelton has been a loyal cheerleader through Stefani's creative process, even tweeting that he downloaded her new single for all the reasons you think he did. Stefani responded with adorable emojis, because this couple is the cutest.

Stefani has given fans some tidbits about her first solo album in 10 years, including a track list and the title, This Is What the Truth Feels Like. Before the album comes out on March 18, she'll be debuting a live music video during a commercial break on Monday night's Grammy Awards. Welcome back, Gwen. We've missed you.
