Little Zuma and Kingston are seen dancing to the music while Shelton is singing about ready to settle down in a wedding-themed music video.
Blake Shelton debuts a music video for his new single “I’ll Name the Dogs” and enlists Gwen Stefani’s two sons Zuma, 8, and Kingston, 10, as cameos. The video follows a couple on their wedding day. They reminisce the old days before swapping the vows.
Shelton plays the wedding band. The 41-year-old country music crooner serenades the newlyweds with his single while little Zuma and Kingston are seen dancing to the music along with the other guests. The two boys look adorable in suits.
“You find the spot and I’ll find the money /You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny /You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses /Baby let’s get right down to business,” he croons. “I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars /You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar /Sang you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs /You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs.”
The single is reportedly inspired by Shelton’s romance with the No Doubt frontwoman. It’s his first new music since he dropped his tenth studio album “If I’m Honest” in 2016.
” ‘I’ll Name the Dogs’ is a bit of a throwback song for me,” he explains. “It’s traditional country with fiddle and steel, and I’ve got Jimmy Olander from Diamond Rio playing the guitar solo. It brings the sound back a little more traditional for a minute, which I felt like needed to happen musically for me.”
Blake Shelton started dating Gwen Stefani, a fellow judge on “The Voice”, in 2015. Shelton had just separated from his wife Miranda Lambert back then and Stefani parted ways with her husband Gavin Rossdale.
“It’s just been an eye opener to be with someone like her,” he told Ellen DeGeneres in 2016. “Believe it or not, I mean, you think Gwen Stefani and No Doubt, she’s literally may be the most normal person that I have ever met in my entire life. And she’s hot, have you seen her?”
“It’s been good for me to be with somebody that’s so grounded,” he added. “And just a good human being with a great heart.”
