Released: 30th September 2002.
The third single from "Rock Steady" is an interesting slice of reggae that doesn't quite reveal itself until after a number of listens. "Underneath It All" is particularly unique to No Doubt as it's cleverly layered and well crafted. Gwen Stefani's flawless vocals lend to this, whereas Lady Saw's just subtract from an otherwise meaningful and original song. Whether it will make the Top 10 or not is a different matter - I suspect it will, but only just.
"Underneath It All", the third single from No Doubt's "Rock Steady" album, follows in the same vein as "Hey Baby" - a straight up reggae track with a slight rock slant. Initially this isn't the most obvious choice for a single, but after a few listens, Gwen's vocals and Lady Saw's cool urban raps will have you wondering how you ever doubted a No Doubt single. However, the video isn't up to much, so "Underneath It All" is best listened to on the radio.
