While on the red carpet for the Radio Disney Music Awards over the weekend, Stefani took time to talk about writing the song, “Go Ahead And Break My Heart”, with her boyfriend.
“I am excited because I never in my wildest dreams thought I would write a song with that guy,” she told E! News. “He’s so talented. He’s an amazing writer. Every time I collaborate with anyone I feel like it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. Whenever I collaborate, it lifts me.”

“I love this song! This song’s important to us and the fact that we wrote it together is so important to both of us,” he added.
