from out of nowhere comes cee-lo green with a conceptual new release, tv on the radio. the album/tape/whatever is 9 songs paying homage and interpolating popular tv theme songs (peanuts, knight rider, family ties) and putting together songs with those in mind.
what a remix from wondaland, iddn’t it? janelle adds to the already excellent title track from her new album with verses from cee-lo green and big boi.
i’ll be honest – outside of a few singles, i haven’t even listened to trouble man. any cee-lo collab is usually good by me, though. “hello” has a pretty nice music video to go alongside the track too, with t.i. finding himself in the desert for a fairly cinematic narrative.
amidst all the voice episodes and tomfoolery of the goodie mob album masked in a cee-lo’s pop stardom, i damn-near forgot this man was full of soul and good times, as evident on “only you,” his latest single. the upcoming LP is set for release this year, and remains untitled for now.
listen below via rolling stone:
cee-lo green – only you [feat. lauriana mae]
been hearing great things about trouble man, especially after his listening party at houston’s wire road studios. here’s a short film, clocking in at about 10 minutes, for his single “trap back jumpin'”. for bonus kicks, listen to his collab with cee-lo below, “hello.” like that?
slaughterhouse is gearing up for the release of welcome to: our house on june 12th. in the meantime, why not rack up some plus points by enlisting cee-lo green for the hook of their lead off single?
slaughterhouse – my life [f. cee-lo green]
i was looking forward to a clusterfuck of dog shit, but was pleasantly surprised at how “not-bad” this performance was. plus there was a clip of “party rock anthem” thrown in the mix, as well as cee-lo. could ALWAYS do without nicki minaj, though.
is cee-lo still showing up at festivals and acting like an asshole? regardless, “anyway” is the first single from the platinum edition of the lady killer to get the visual treatment.
the collaborative writing effort of cee lo green and rivers cuomo, the r&b nugget “anyway” is set to appear on the platinum edition of green’s the lady killer. check out the lyric video, or as i like to call ’em, karaoke style, up above.
not the miles you were expecting, i’m sure, but cee lo is one for delivering the unexpected. at a recent studio session at the bbc radio 1 live lounge, green took a moment to perform former-rascals frontman miles kane’s rockin’ “inhaler” from his debut solo ep colour of the trap.
new cee-lo for your monday afternoon. and for you gnarls fans, i’d put this closer to a gnarls-influenced cut than one inspired by the lady killer. production wise, anyway.
cee-lo green – you promised me love
many factors contribute to this clip of cee lo green’s “cry baby,” from last year’s the lady killer, being so damn great: there’s the playful 1950’s theme, the synchronized choreography, the gaggle of sun dressed honeys, but mostly it’s frickin’ jaleel white.
and oh, did he ever do that.
i like cee-lo. i like vodka. win effing win.
absolut put together a nice jay-z documentary a while back. now they’re jumping into bed with the ‘fuck you’ singer. trailer’s up top, and the full video (part I now; part II goes up july 6th.) can be seen at cee-lo’s facebook headquarters.
cee-lo green – distilled
cee-lo’s getting ready to drop the it’s ok EP to itunes soon. what’s an EP for a single without a b-side to vibe with? here’s “bridges,” a track that just so happened to miss the cut for the lady killer, but doesn’t necessarily lack in the whole ‘awesome’ category.
