Gwen Stefani's new single RICH GIRL is inspired by classical musical number IF I WERE A RICH MAN from Fiddler on the Roof.

Dr Dre persuaded the NO DOUBT singer to cover the tune, performed by Russian peasant TEVYE, and Stefani was so impressed with the update, which also features rapper Eve, she has chosen to release it as her second solo single.

Stefani says, "I went to the musical on Broadway just to get inspired to write the lyrics."
