The album is slated for December 7 U.S. release and the foul-mouthed song has been edited to 'Forget You' for radio play.
After causing a viral commotion with his song "F**k You", Cee-Lo announced a new album titled "The Lady Killer". He is going to include the F-bomb-dropping song among his new materials and will release the album in United States on December 7.
"The Lady Killer" is Cee-Lo's first solo work in more than six years since 2004 "Cee-Lo Green... Is the Soul Machine". The producers who will work on this project include Salaam Remi (Nas, Amy Winehouse), Jack Splash (Alicia Keys, Missy Elliott) and Fraser T. Smith (Nelly Furtado, James Morrison).
Teaming up with rising star Bruno Mars and certified production trio The Smeezingtons, Cee-Lo invaded the web with foul-mouthed track "F**k You" last week. In the first five days online, the viral song drew more than 2 million plays and quickly became the #1 most viewed video in the United Kingdom.
Due to its overwhelming response, 50 Cent even spared his time to put his own spin to the track. And Cee-Lo is flattered with it, "It was flattering that he would take the liberty of joining in so quickly." He added, "I thought it was really cool."
In order to get radio play, the song is then edited to "Forget You". Both the dirty and clean versions of the song will get music video treatments which are currently in production, with "F**k You" clip due to premiere next week.
