Fans were thrilled at the news and took to Blake’s official Instagram comments to reveal their happiness at both the new tune and the subsequent tour.
“Congratulations Blake! Your music is amazing,” stated one Instagram follower of the country superstar.
Another fan stated, “Legends rule heaven and hell and all in between.”
A third fan mentioned, “One of the many reasons why I love you!!”
The Inquisitr recently reported that Blake called out a contestant on The Voice, joking that they were coming in between himself and his girlfriend and fellow coach Gwen Stefani. He said the contestant could potentially be causing a relationship breakup after a battle round where Blake stole a singing hopeful and Gwen stole the same singer from her boyfriend for her own team.
Two singers from Team John Legend, Katie Kadan and Destiny Rayne, performed a fiery duet of Elton John’s iconic “Tiny Dancer,” leading to a standing ovation from all four judges.
After both Blake and Gwen fought with their own steals for the singer, Destiny had to choose between the real-life couple, and which team she wanted to be on as the competition progressed. Destiny picked Gwen, and Blake then directed his fake annoyance toward the singing hopeful.
“You broke up America’s couple. The tabloids are coming.”
The Voice airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
