The joint effort will become the lead single on No Doubt's fifth studio album which will be unveiled on September 25, 2012 according to the legendary band.
For Busy Signal, his experience alongside No Doubt's lead vocalist, Gwen Stefani and her group mates was enjoyable as the level of innovation while in the studio was unlimited given their different backgrounds and ideas created while brainstorming throughout the recording process.
The artiste, whose real name is Reanno Gordon also believes that this venture shows how much attention that highly regarded overseas artistes are giving to authentic Dancehall/Reggae music.
Meanwhile, Busy Signal's manager, Shane Brown explained the origins of this collaboration, explaining that after Busy had recorded a single alongside Diplo of Major Lazer which Stefani later heard and liked; thus leading them to meet in studio and record, Push and Shove.
