Cee Lo Green is nothing, if not colorful. Not the king yet, but let’s call him a prince of creative collaboration. Here, he joins with Canadian native, Melanie Fiona for an old new school cut in “Fool for You.”
The tune is reminiscent of a little bit of Motown/Stax, a little bit of Teddy Pendergrass – a nice jumble of genres, with definite Cee Lo flair.
Green, born Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, is the popular kid in the class lately with all of his work on the television show, “The Voice” and numerous duets, features and joint appearances with industry favorites. The music is consistently fresh, fun and cool – all at the same time.
He originally jumped on the scene as a member of the hip hop group Goodie Mob and later enjoyed success with the Gnarls Barkley hit, “Crazy.”
New to the solo set, he is absolutely making a mark for himself in the sea of singers, songwriters and performers. If you have ever scene checked his interactions on “The Voice,” you know he can never be accused of being shy.
He is still enjoying residual nods for his 2010 release, “The Lady Killer,” which included the much talked-about cut, “Forget You.” (Cleaned up version).
“Fool For You”
(“The Lady Killer” Album Version; feat. Philip Bailey)
What?! That real, that deep, that burning, that amazing unconditional, inseparable love
That feel like forever, that always emotional but still exceptional love
Can’t nobody tell me nothing it is what it is
And any mistake you make I, I just may forgive
Right now, right now at this very moment I still love her like I loved her then
I love her in and out and up and down and ’round and ’round and over and over again
So rare they swear that you just don’t exist
And there’s only one person I can think of that makes me feel like this
And I’m a fool, such a fool for you!
What?! That deep, that sweet, that soft and that wet that fire, that funky stuff
That up and that down, that front and that back, baby I can’t seem to get enough
Ooo Baby let me do it, let me do it ’til I’m satisfied ahh ahh
Baby now please baby I ain’t got no more pride
Sweet sugar I surrender, I don’t want no other woman. Baby you win
And you ain’t never got to worry, ever got to worry
You’ll never be alone again
There’s nothing, there’s nothing
That I wouldn’t do
I wrote a song about it mama
Everybody knows who I’m talking to
And I’m a fool, such a fool for you
I’m a fool, I’m a fool, I’m such a fool…
