"Long Way to Go" is a song by American singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani with American rapper André 3000. The song appears as the closing track on Stefani's debut studio album, Love. Angel. Music. Baby. (2004). It was released on November 23, 2004, along with the rest of Love. Angel. Music. Baby. by Interscope Records. The track was written by both Stefani and 3000, while 3000 was the sole producer of the track.
Although the song was scrapped from 3000's critically acclaimed OutKast studio album, The Love Below (2003), Stefani and 3000 finalized a reworked version of the song to be included on Stefani's album. The song prominently features a sample from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech in its closing outro. King is not credited for contributed lyrics to the song. Musically, "Long Way to Go" is influenced by electronic music and alternative hip hop, with partial influence from both dance music and soul music.
After its release, "Long Way to Go" received scrutiny for its sample of "I Have a Dream". The song also was received negatively for its outdated metaphors on interracial relationships. However, the track did receive positive attention for being a "standout" on Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and also for its electronic production, particularly the closing of the track. Stefani performed the track during her 2005 Harajuku Lovers Tour, accompanied by the Harajuku Girls.
