Where do I start…I FUCKING LOVE THIS SONG! Cee-Lo Green…such a talented artist. For you true hip-hop heads, you will remember that he started with a hip-hop group out of Atlanta called The Goodie Mob. Not sure what or why the group broke up but Cee- Lo was probably the most out-spoken and most recognizable of the quartet. He had a solo album in 2002 which really displayed his range as a musician, artist and rapper. “Fool For You” is off his latest album “The Lady Killer”, which also debuted with the single “Fuck You” which was a chart topper in late summer of 2010 through the release of his latest album in April 2011.
That is what I have always enjoyed about Cee-Lo’s music – his ability to blend old school classic funk into a more modern sound. Something about his music gives me a nostalgic feeling…reminiscent of my childhood when groups like Earth, Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass and etc…
This version is the remix, which includes another talented artist/singer Melanie Fiona (not to mention who happens to also be sooo delicious). Admittedly, this song does makes me think of someone that I hold close to my heart – I am definitely a fool for her! 🙂
