Cee-Lo Premieres Official ‘F— You’ Video
'F--- You,' Cee-Lo's comeback single, has been nothing short of a sensation since its release two weeks ago. The poppy crooner is fueling the hype more with a new stylish video for his anthemic hatred of gold diggers.
The official video definitely goes with a retro feel not all too dissimilar from the television series 'Mad Men' or stereotypical '50s Rat Pack persona. Sure, we get grown-up Cee-Lo -- looking rather sharp in a plaid jacket getup -- but there's also a series of Cee-Los throughout the years.
The other hip-hop touchstone that the clip brings to mind is A Tribe Called Quest's video for the eternally-chill 'Electric Relaxation.' As the song reaches its peaks, more and more people pick at their burgers and malts with heads bobbing. It taps well into the song's universal sentiment. Who hasn't felt like Cee-Lo at some point and wanted to tell their own private heartbreaker exactly how they feel?
Of course, 'F--- You' is the lead single off of Cee-Lo's upcoming 'The Lady Killer' LP. You can find the new album in stores on December 7 via Elektra Records.
