Cee-Lo Green Is the Lady Killer - October (w/ awesome new single "F*** You")

This should have come out at the beginning of the summer! Good stuff!!

Fuck You:



Official video should be out next week. Album in October.

It will also include "Georgia" and a cover of Band of Horses "No One's Gonna Love You".

I have to admit, the song is catchy.

I'm a little confused by the lyrics though. He's pissed off at the guy who's with his girl since the "Fuck You" was mostly directed at him... even though the chick is a gold-digger and left for a richer guy and causing him pain?

I have been listening to this song nonstop for 3 days. Awesome stuff. I actually paid money for it from Ceelo Green's website, which is a rarity these days for new music.

Very much looking forward to the new album. That song is great, as is this one by the man, which I'm hoping will be on the record, too....



..I heard it at work the other day, and had to track down who did it. Was surprised, pleasantly, when I found out it was Cee-Lo.

Well he's jealous that the guy could afford her, so he says fuck you. And then he tacks on the fuck her too, because she is a golddigger anyway.

Modern R&B is not really my thing, but this had a good 70's Marvin Gaye vibe going one and I love that stuff. Really great song!

You gotta check out his stuff with Danger Mouse, then. St. Elsewhere in incredible, IMO.

I'm also glad to see this get a release date. "Georgia" is incredible!

great track. it's like retro and modern all in the same breath. i also have a soft spot for his "Kung Fu Fighting" that he did with Jack Black for Kung Fu Panda.

God damn I can't get enough of that song. I'm gonna run it into the ground harder than "Crazy." Definitely should have come out at the beginning of summer though.

I kinda like the lyrics video better, though this one is all right. That break down at the end gets me every time.

Me too but this has crossover potential. Reminds me of the Hey Ya video even though the content has no similarities.

In regards to the language, I think this pitchfork reviewer said it best:

"...coming from Cee-Lo's mouth, the title phrase actually isn't illicit at all. It's beyond happy. Cathartic. It could be the new "Sesame Street" theme. It could play at a wedding, and your grandmother would hobble to it. It's post-censorship. The radio version replaces "fuck" with "forget," and it may as well not exist."

Refreshing to see a rock star that's not concerned with vanity.

Same for me. I saw someone on my Facebook wall post it earlier this evening. I knew of this thread so I figured I'd check it out. Really good stuff.

Rap Radar now says it's due out on Dec. 7. This made me go back and watch the video for "Hey Ya", and now I want some new music from Andre 3000 to go along with new Cee-Lo.

December 7th! Geez, that's a helluva wait for an album that has a lot of good buzz right now. Guess they're pushing the single sales.
