Boasting a production of nearly a million heads (including The Smeezingtons, Bruno Mars’ production team), it’s hard to find anything wrong with Cee Lo’s third solo release, The Lady Killer. Propelled by the massive success of the album’s lead-off single “Fuck You!”, The Lady Killer entered at No. 9 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart and at No. 2 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
The album has many sides to it: Cee Lo the lover (“Fool For You”; “Please”), Cee Lo the killer (“Bodies”), Cee Lo the soul singer (“Satisfied”; “Old Fashioned”), Cee Lo the pop star (“Fuck You!”). Wherever you look (or listen) on The Lady Killer, you will find Green’s early beginnings in gospel music influencing his R&B and soul musical aspects.
Due to the production teams’ seamless blending of different genres into each other, The Lady Killer has something for everyone (although I don’t suggest playing the lead-off single for your conservative grandmother). The album appeals to the rising neo-soul crowd while implementing pop to appeal to the Top 40 crowd (which it definitely does). Don’t let his small-yet-big frame fool you; Cee Lo Green definitely packs a punch!
