F**K You! – Cee Lo Green

Thomas DeCarlo Callaway better known by his stage name Cee Lo Green or simply Cee Lo, is an American hip hop, funk, neo soul, and R&B musician. He is a singer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer, best known as a member of Goodie Mob and more recently Gnarls Barkley, and has also recorded two critically acclaimed solo LPs.

Cee Lo was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and attended Benjamin E. Mays High School in southwest Atlanta.

Both of Cee Lo’s parents were ordained ministers and he started his music career in his church. His father died when he was 2 years old. His mother Sheila J. Tyler-Callaway was involved in a car crash, leaving her quadriplegic. She died 2 years after the accident, when Cee Lo was 18 years old and his career with Goodie Mob had just begun taking off. His mother’s death led him into depression, as is reflected in various songs throughout his career, including “Free” by Goodie Mob, songs on St. Elsewhere, and on The Odd Couple (“She Knows”, “A Little Better”). Cee Lo also expresses his love for his mother in the song “Guess Who” from Goodie Mob’s Soul Food album.

Fuck You!

Fuck You!” is a 2010 single by Cee Lo Green from his planned December 2010 album, The Ladykiller. A music video for the song was released on YouTube on August 19, 2010, featuring the lyrics of the song appearing on different colored backgrounds with film grain overlayed on the video. The video went viral, getting over two million views within a week of its release. The radio edit of the song is called “Forget You!”. The official music video was released on September 1, 2010.[5] A remix features 50 Cent and also has a video similar to the original version of the song. In the UK the track has been added to Radio 1 A-Playlist.

On 18 September 2010, the song jumped from 22 to 1 on the Dutch Top 40, making the Netherlands the first country where the song reached number one.
