The lyric video for “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” also dropped on YouTube on Monday. Listen below:
“Binge on my music for days ’cause I’ve been here for years / Not a comeback (Oh), I’m recycling me / It’s not a comeback (Oh), you feel that new enеrgy,” Stefani sings. The pop icon makes a nod towards some of her other popular hits including “Hollaback Girl” and “Bananas.”

“Let me re, let re-introduce myself / Case you forgot no I’m not records on your shelf / I’m still the original-original old me,” the chorus says.
