Gwen Stefani is Back with her Emotional “Used to Love You” Video

This isn’t a joke — Gwen Stefani has really made her return to the pop scene. Her new song, Used to Love You, was released Tuesday night at midnight, and she wasted no time following up with a music video. The video is as simple as they come, just zooming in above Stefani’s neck and letting the emotion in her face do the talking for all four minutes.

The effect works, as the intensity in Stefani’s eyes translates the message behind the big pop ballad. This is her first song since her divorce with 13-year husband Gavin Rossdale, and many of the lyrics feel like they are direct reflections of this pain. With more than 10,000,000 views across Youtube and Facebook, Gwen Stefani is surely back in a big way.
