Michael Jackson vs. Gwen Stefani Hollaback Thriller Girl (Single Version)
"Hollaback Girl" is a song by American singer Gwen Stefani from her debut solo studio album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. (2004). As part of Stefani's vision of creating "a silly dance record", "Hollaback Girl" is a hip hop song that draws influence from 1980s hip hop and dance music. The song was written by Stefani, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, supposedly as a response to Courtney Love's statement that Stefani was a "cheerleader" in an interview with Seventeen magazine. The song was released as the album's third single on March 15, 2005, and was one of the year's most popular songs, peaking inside the top-ten on the majority of the charts it entered. It reached number one in Australia and the United States, where it became the first digital download to sell one million copies.
