CeeLo Green teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Mark Ronson for his new single Mother May I. Mother May I follows CeeLo’s latest release Robin Williams.
CeeLo’s new single featured on his new album Heart Blanche to be released in November. This is the first album he has released since his 2012 Christmas Album, Cee Lo’s Magic Moment and 2010’s The Lady Killer, featuring his hit single F–k You.
Although CeeLo is continuing to release new music, I’m not sure that anyone wants to listen to it. It seems like everyone is still upset over the trouble he got into last year.
In 2014, the singer was facing trial for slipping a woman ecstasy, who later woke up behind him naked. He also went on to post his feelings about the situation on Twitter. He wrote, “if someone is passed out they’re not even WITH you consciously! so WITH implies consent… People who have really been raped REMEMBER!!!”
The singer was sentenced to three years of formal probation and ordered to complete 360 hours of community service, according to NME. When something like that happens, it’s no surprise that a singer’s career would start spiraling downhill.
CeeLo has been attempting to rebuild and get back in the game by releasing singles such as Sign of the Times and Robin Williams, which have fallen pretty flat. Not only is he trying with his music, but he’s still trying to apologize to the world.
He’s even trying to get back on The Voice. I definitely don’t see that happening, especially since his replacements–Pharrell Williams and Usher–is so awesome.
“I’ve talked very possibly about doing The Voice again. So I just kind of put that out there, wishful thinking, kind of willing it. Because I would love to do it again,” CeeLo told Associated Press.
CeeLo continued in an attempt to apologize further:
“It was a very redefining moment in my personal and professional life. I get in front of my creator, humbled, and I ask, ‘What does this mean? What is this supposed to mean for me? What am I supposed to learn from it?’ And [to] have that revealed and have it bestowed upon me is a blessing, of sorts… I feel really strong and really confident about this album and going forward. And I’m so grateful that you yourself, and everyone who just may happen to witness this particular interview, have my deepest, sincerest apologies for any inconvenience, any ignorance, any ill will, anything. I’m just glad that it’s behind me now. I’m so glad for it.”
CeeLo’s newest attempt at a comeback is this new single. The song isn’t bad, but I don’t think it’s the cure to his fans’ discontent. Listen here:
