Cee Lo Green: F**K You
Listen to the song above.
Cee Lo Green, better known in the UK as one half of chart topping act Gnarls Barkely, has returned with the new single entitled”F**K You”.
Following the amazing reception that greeted the video premiere of his upcoming single ‘F**K YOU’ as it became the biggest viral hit of the summer (it received over 1 million view in the first 48 hours after its upload and more than 5 million in total), Cee Lo Green can confirm that he will play a special one-off London show at Cargo on September 27th.
This will be Green’s only UK date this year before he heads back to the States where ‘F**K YOU’ is shaping up to be one of the biggest hits of the year.
Set for release on October 4th, ‘F**K YOU’ immediately became the UK’s #1 most viewed music video. The international response was equally astonishing as it progressed to become the global top favourited video and the worldwide most discussed video. And not only did the track hit #1 at Hype Machine, but it also hit the website’s Top 40 in another five positions.
Excitement for the release of ‘The Lady Killer’ has continued to grow exponentially since Green unveiled his soulful take on the Band of Horses’ ‘No One’s Gonna Love You.’ Featuring collaborators including Paul Epworth, Salaam Remi and Fraser T. Smith, ‘The Lady Killer’ is the album Cee Lo was destined to make. It will seal his rep: not only as a writer, producer and performer of unrivalled pizzazz, chutzpah, inventiveness and genius; but as a singer whose voice can nail an emotion – be it pain, yearning, anger, sarcasm, love, lust, frustration – like no other. Cee Lo Green stands alone.
The show on September 27th is sure to be the hottest ticket in town given that it represents the first chance for UK fans to hear material from Cee Lo Green’s upcoming solo album ‘The Lady Killer’ that will be released on November 1st. Tickets for the show – at which Green, also known as the voice behind Gnarls Barkley, will be backed by a full band – are likely to sell out as soon as they go on general sale at 9am on Friday September 17th. They will be available at a price of £21.50 from the credit card hotline on 0844 576 5483.
