Cee-Lo Green released a Christmas album earlier this month called Cee-Lo’s Magic Moment; though it contains mostly covers of classic holiday hits like “White Christmas” and “Silent Night,” there is one original track planted inside. To promote the catchy single “All I Need Is Love,” Green collaborated with The Muppets for the second time in his career (remember his colorful rendition of “F–k You” at the Grammys?) in a fun and cheery music video that also features a cameo by The Office‘s Craig Robinson as Santa. The song, which is infused with the classic Muppets tune “Mahna Mahna,” is infectious and by the time you’re done watching this nearly seven-minute clip you’ll be humming All I need is la-la-love! My favorite part is when the newest member of the Muppets family Walter looks up to Robinson and proclaims, “So Santa’s my homie!”
It’s almost that time of year; enjoy. Download the track at iTunes.

For her final in a college level sign language class, student Anna put together this adorable rendition of Cee-Lo Green’s catchy tune “F–k You.” Girl’s got skillz, yo. (Warning: Contains NSFW language)
Brendan Becker, aka InversePhase, is just like the rest of us. He listened to Cee-Lo Green’s insanely catchy tune “F–K You” and couldn’t get it out of his head. What makes him different, however, is his innate ability to transform the track into 8-bit bliss and come up with all new lyrics that follows the rocky relationship between the aging NES and fashionable Sega Genesis during the late 1980s. The original song features Cee-Lo cursing out a girl who left him for a richer man; here it’s Nintendo gettin’ a little sumpthin’ off its chest.
Cee-Lo’s uber-catchy single “F–K You” has finally landed. Watch it above and don’t forget to sing-along. The lyric video introduced us to the track, but the music video brings things to a whole new level–it features slick animations, children cursing, and backup dancers! Don’t forget, the song is filled with NSFW language(if you couldn’t guess from the title). Lady Killers, Cee-Lo’s third studio album, drops December 7.
Cee-Lo Green is a hip-hop/funk/soul artist whose been around since 1992; he is best known for his work with the Goodie Mob, but you will likely recognize his voice from his recent collab with Gnarls Barkley on the smash single “Crazy” off 2006’s St. Elsewhere. Cee-Lo has a new album to promote, so he let loose this extremely catchy and profane single titled, um, “F–k You”. In the song Cee-Lo curses out a girl who left him for a richer man. There is a high level of profanity used in the track, but that is balanced out with really creative and witty lines like, “I’m sorry I can’t afford a Ferrari/I guess she’s an Xbox and I’m more Atari.” This single could be an instant radio hit, but I don’t know how it would fare with the incessant bleeps.
Embedded above is the lyric video for the track (again, it’s filled with NSFW language). A standard music video for the track is expected to drop sometime this week. Cee-Lo’s third solo album Lady Killer hits stores October 4 December 7.
Update: 50 Cent has gone ahead and added a single new verse to the track. In the freestyle he assumes the role of the rich man who stole away Cee-Lo’s lady. Listen to 50’s addition after the break.
Update 2: In an interview with EW, Cee-Lo said that Lady Killer will drop later than expected on December 7. He also revealed that a profanity-free radio edit is in the works. “It’s called “Forget You,”” he says. “It’s pretty close to the original, but not as effective. But it’s politically correct.” So I guess that catchy tune (minus its naughty bits) will make its way to the radio at some point.
