Gnarls Barkley frontman Cee-Lo has captured the attention of many folks with his new song, "Fuck You!" The song is a viral smash, and it's a soulful anthem littered with the liberating title phrase. Only Cee-Lo could make "Fuck You" sound so delightful. Since it's posting on YouTube last week, it has already received 1.4 million YouTube views/plays.
The song was co-written and produced by Bruno Mars and is set to be released as a single October 4 as well as to appear on the singer's upcoming album The LadyKiller.

I personally love when he tosses off Mr. T's signature phrase, "I pity the fool." Overall, this classic soul sound has been modernized and dirtied up and has the makings of a huge hit.
What do you think of the song?
