Winner of Best Traditional R&B Performance and Best R&B song, “Fool for You”.
Elektra recording artist Cee-Lo Green’s first solo work in more than six years, sees the endlessly inventive singer/writer/rapper/producer continuing to push hip-hop and soul’s creative envelope, this time working with a star-studded cast of producers that includes Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse), Jack Splash (Alicia Keys, Missy Elliot, Jamie Foxx), and Fraser T. Smith (Nelly Furtado, James Morrison, Ellie Goulding).
Released last month via Green’s official YouTube channel, the blockbuster first single ‘Fk You’ caused an instant viral commotion, drawing more than 2 million plays in its first five days online. ‘Fk You’ – co-written and produced by the multi-platinum certified production trio, The Smeezingtons, featuring Green’s Elektra labelmate, Bruno Mars – is now bulleting its way up the top 40 on Billboard’s ‘Hot 100’ singles chart. Along with its phenomenal popular success, the single has also received ecstatic critical acclamation from coast to coast. ‘One of the greatest songs in the history of humankind,’ declared The Dallas Observer’s ‘DC9 At Night’ music blog.
