Cee-Lo’s Simple Masterpiece of a Video

August 21, 2010

Soul singer Ra-Re Valverde just gave me the greatest gift ever! I stopped by her Facebook page to leave a message and stumbled across the new Cee-Lo Green video masterpiece from his forthcoming album, The Lady Killer (out in October). The song, F**K YOU, is the catchiest shit I have heard in ages. I’ve replayed it 7 times in a row. And the video takes the art of simplicity to its most basic sense: Strong block letters against colorful backgrounds, giving us the lyrics to the song along the way.

Ironically enough, this is the most cheerful, energetic, colorful song out right now – kind of reminiscent of Sugarland‘s revenge-is-sweet video for Stuck Like Glue. You have to love the hate-meets-happy concept.

This is not a censored song, so you know whether you should press play now or wait until later. But when you do… you’re going to love it. Well, the way to my heart is through a well-placed curse word. Maybe I’m different. Nah, you’ll love it too.
