Remember when Cee-Lo Green was the Soul Machine? If not, do you remember when he was the front man for Gnarles Barkley? Now he's a bitter solo artist. He has a new song out and I'm pretty sure it will be played to death in six to nine months' time. It's pretty good and it has a lot of crossover appeal - goofy kid grows up to be a lady killing star who tells off all the girls he couldn't love before, laid over a slickly produced neo-retro soul hook. Kind of like a Mike Posner song but without help from ProTools. Although the title (and chorus) of the song, "Fuck You," might not help with said crossover. I'll let you be the judge.
Keep the volume down at work.
I drafted this crossover prediction on Friday night and set it up to publish on Sunday. By Saturday someone already released a "Baltimore club edit," whatever that means. Be prepared to hear this song ad nauseum.
