No Doubt are back to their prime on new single

Last week No Doubt released the second single and title track off of their long awaited sixth album Push and Shove. Their first single came out about a month earlier and while it's amazing this song is truly a classic. It mixes the reggae, ska and rock elements of their previous albums with a parts that can only be described as diet dubstep.
The album features Jamaican dancehall artist Busy Signal and Major Lazer a production group that features Diplo.
The verses feature reggae inspired vocals by vocalist Gwen Stefani and Busy Signal. The song also features the vocals of Diplo. The song also has a little bit of ska influence with horns during the second verse. The lyrics are about Busy Signal trying to pick up Stefani and while they're cheesy, this song is just so great that it's hard to hold that against it.
The highlight is the rock chorus. "You work it hard, boy you got me good. You push and shove, oh boy you're hustling me," Stefani sings over the rocked out chorus.
No Doubt release the album on September 25 and if it's like the first two singles the world is in for a great treat. This song reminds everybody that just because their last album came out over a decade a go, doesn't mean that No Doubt aren't still legends.
Below is a video of the radio edit. That's all that YouTube has.
