'Looking Hot' is a hard-rocking, addictive song that is more powerful than 'Settle Down'. It has more of a Stefani-like pop sound and is sure to be a dance hit, with a catchy chorus and several synth beats. The song may not be classic No Doubt, but the bridge is slower with a ska-like breakdown in it before Stefani energetically returns. Stefani told MTV News that the song was almost thrown away. She added, "It was an end of a song that turned into a chorus that ended up being [a song]...it was one of those weird transitional songs." Stefani also said she loves this song and really enjoys many of the songs on the record.
No Doubt recently performed 'Looking Hot' at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. The song will likely became a staple of their upcoming performances. Listeners can hear No Doubt's latest single on AOL Radio's New Pop First.
