Cee Lo Green has announced the upcoming release of his eagerly awaited new solo album, The Lady Killer," which will include the sensational, all-over-YouTube first single, "F**k You." The album arrives in stores and at all online retailers on December 7. Put it on your holiday wish list. If Santa does not bring it for you, then you can say "F**k You!"
Released last week via Green's official YouTube channel, "F**k You" has caused a genuine viral commotion, drawing more than 2 million plays in the first five days online.
"F**k You" – co-written and produced by the multi-platinum certified production trio, The Smeezingtons, featuring Green's Elektra labelmate, Bruno Mars – is officially for sale on www.ceelogreen.com and can be purchased individually or in a bundle, which includes an exclusive Cee Lo Green "F**k You" t-shirt. The digital single will be available at all digital retailers today and a CD single will be available exclusively at Independent record stores on September 21. An amended version of the single, entitled "Forget You," will follow later in the fall, and companion videos for both versions are currently in production, with "F**k You" due to premiere next week. In the meantime, the original "F**k You" clip can be seen and heard at www.youtube.com/user/CeeLoGreen. How the f**k is this song going to be played on the radio without inciting the f**king ire of the f**king FCC, as well as over-the-top religious and f**king right wing groups?
That said, this song is destined to be the kiss off anthem of the dissed, dumped, brokenhearted, disrespected, mistreated, wronged and cheated on folks!
Even 50 Cent was inspired to put together his own unauthorized remix of the track, which has also drawn a huge online audience. It's the new "Hey Ya!" Remember that Outlast tune?
Who would you like to sing "F**k You" to?
