Song Review: “Doing What She Likes” by @BlakeShelton

After a couple leaks from the music industry yesterday, Blake Shelton took to twitter to make this announcement…..Well I guess it’s official now.. “Doing What She Likes” is the my new single!!!

The 4th song off his platinum selling album, “Based on a True Story” was written by Phil O’Donell and Wade Kirby. It doesn’t disappoint. The song is layered with sweet lyrics about a guy that will do just about anything his girl likes.

She likes it when I bring home fresh fajitas
And mix up a pitcher of margaritas
Catch a kind of buzz that lasts all night
Doin’ what she likes

Like running my fingers through her long hair
Lightin’ watermelon candles upstairs
Lettin’ them burn and holdin’ her all night
I like doin’ what she likes

Blake Shelton may be the only artist to pull off somewhat cliche lyrics and make them sound absolutely sincere. You can hear the genuine love pouring out of the song. Its loving and conversational, almost like you are sitting in a room with him as he’s telling you about his girl.

The song will be a new favorite for Blake fans, is the perfect fit for country radio play, and will likely make many guys hate him as they realize how much they need to step it up. (that part was a joke…kinda)
