Blake Shelton premiered a new song, "Minimum Wage," on New Year's Eve. Commenting on it, "I can't speak for everybody else, but I had a great 2020. Even though a lot of bad stuff happened personally for me, I got engaged to Gwen Stefani, and I don't care what else happened besides that. That made it a great year."
The song is a love letter in which he sings to Gwen: "Girl, your love can make a man feel rich on minimum wage."
Obviously a multimillionaire singing to another millionaire about her love making someone on minimum wage feel rich did not sit well with people, facing immediate backlash, considering 2020 had a record unemployment and financial loss because of COVID-19.
