Cee Lo Green Tickets : Melody Thornton Is Currently In The Studio With Cee Lo Working On Her Album
Internationally, Green is best known for his work within the hip hop duo Gnarls Barkley and their 2006 worldwide hit “Crazy”, which reached number one in various singles charts worldwide, including the UK. In the United States, “Crazy” reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100.
Parenting album St. Elsewhere was also a hit, reaching number one on the UK Album Charts and number four on the US Billboard 200 album charts. Gnarls Barkley’s second album, internationally less successful, The Odd Couple (2008) missed the top ten in both the UK and US, where it charted at number twelve in the US, and eighteen in the UK.
Along with Big Gipp, T-Mo, and Khujo, Cee Lo was an original member of the Atlanta hip-hop group Goodie Mob. He is the youngest of the four. The Goodie Mob were a part of the Atlanta rap collective the Dungeon Family, which also included OutKast. The group released their debut album, Soul Food in 1995.
The album received much critical praise as a pioneering record for the then emerging Southern rap scene. It featured a distinctive soulful southern sound by production team Organized Noize, who had also produced OutKast’s debut Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik. Cee Lo got considerable praise for his rapping and singing of hooks, particularly on the hit singles “Cell Therapy” and “Soul Food”.
The group’s second album, Still Standing came out in 1998 and also received much critical praise. Its commercial performance was slightly lower than the group’s previous effort however. At this time Cee Lo foucused primarily on rapping over singing. While he did frequently sing hooks and did some singing, at this point he was a rapper first and foremost.
Cee Lo took more creative control on the group’s next album, World Party. Released in 1999, this album was more of a party record than the group’s previous output, getting away somewhat from their socially conscious lyricism.
During the making of the album World Party, Cee Lo left the group to pursue a solo career under Arista and the remaining members continued to perform together under the Goodie Mob name with Koch Records. They did however collaborate in combinations in the Dungeon Family album Even in Darkness.
Although the next Goodie Mob album seemed to mock Cee Lo with its title, One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show, the group expressed that it was more of a jab at Arista and the music industry as a whole.
In 2005, Cee Lo and Big Gipp were both noted in interview. No title or release date have been given for the new project. The song “Hold On” from Big Boi of OutKast’s Got Purp? Vol 2 album was the first newly recorded Goodie Mob song with all four members since World Party. (Khujo later revealed to fans at an album signing for his new album “Mercury”, that the song “Hold On” was originally recorded in 1995 before Soul Food was released.)
Cee Lo is collaborating with producer Jazze Pha to release an album called Happy Hour on Jazze record label. The songs “Happy Hour” (as well as the remix with Bun B, Snoop Dogg & Tone Tone), “Man of the Hour”, and “Disco Bitch” (featuring The Pussycat Dolls) from the album have already been released as singles and B-sides. Jazze Pha has produced numerous hit singles with many artists, but this project is his rapping and singing debut.
Cee Lo is co-producing the album with him, so both artist and producer share equal roles in vocals and production. Also, Melody Thornton confirmed that she is currently in the studio with Cee Lo working on her solo album.
In 2010, he recorded a song for the Sex and the City 2 soundtrack which reached number 9 in the charts and was written by him and produced by T-Pain which is called “Language of Love”. He along with The Red Hot Chili Peppers and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder were rumored to be appearing on British DJ Paul Oakenfold’s upcoming album.
