Cee Lo Green Reaches New Peak with “F**k You”

CHART SPOTLIGHT. Cee Lo Green reaches a new peak on the Hot 100 with “F**k You (Forget You).” The track moves 7-2 as interest resurged following a recent performance at the Grammy Awards with Gwyneth Paltrow and The Muppets. WelcheMusic has previously covered Paltrow’s musical escapades in the movie Country Strong.

“F**k You (Forget You)” became a huge hit internationally in 2010, topping the charts in countries such as the UK and the Netherlands.

The hit even reverses its course on the UK singles chart this week, moving 19-14 in its 21st week. Coincidentally, the Glee Cast/Gwyneth Paltrow version bows at No.31 as well.

In Sweden, the track remains in the Top 40 having peaked at No.6 last October. The cut has been remixed by the likes of 50 Cent and Chiddy Bang.

Being quite offensive in its lyrics, radio was offered the clean version “Forget You” as well. In November, Gwyneth Paltrow performed a version of the track in a Glee episode, hence the Grammy performance. The magazine Time named it Song of the Year 2010.

“F**k You (Forget You)” is included on Cee Lo Green’s third studio album The Lady Killer as the lead single. In December last year, “It’s OK!” became the second single off the set. The track peaked at No.20 in the UK.

Cee Lo Green was one half of the musical collaboration Gnarls Barkley. They released the two albums St. Elsewhere (2006) and The Odd Couple (2008). WelcheMusic still remember their biggest hit to date – the debut hit “Crazy” – which topped the UK singles chart and peaked at No.2 on the Hot 100.

Finally, there are rumors about Cee Lo Green making a cover of “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” for the Russel Brand-and Helen Mirren-starring Arthur re-make.

You Me At Six Takes Chiddy to the UK Chart

CHART SPOTLIGHT. The British rock band You Me At Six reached new heights as the new single “Rescue Me” bows at No.21 on the singles tally tonight. The group comes from Surrey and was formed in 2005. The five-piece group got its breakthrough in 2007 when they were nominated in the Best British Newcomer category at the Kerrang! Awards. They lost to Gallows.

“Rescue Me” is the first single to be taken off You Me At Six’ third studio album, yet to be titled. It features Chiddy on vocals, one of the two members of the alternative hip hop band Chiddy Bang.

On Last.FM, “Underdog” is still the most popular track during the last week, ahead of “Stay with Me.” You Me At Six has previously recorded covers of Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed”  as well as Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face.”

According to the music blog Good Music All Day, the song debuted on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show in early January. A version where the two verses from Chiddy were omitted circulated ahead of the radio release. WelcheMusic will keep you posted on forthcoming news about the group
