CeeLo Green is a rapper and singer-songwriter who started out his musical career as part of the influential underground Atlanta hip-hop group Goodie Mob. After leaving the group in 1996, he went on to equally great success as a solo artist, touring with the likes of Kanye West and Timbaland. His reputation skyrocketed when he was signed to the independently owned independent label Rocawear and released a series of singles and albums that reached platinum status. Now he is best known as one half of the rap/hip-hop act that is commonly known as CeeLo Green.
One of CeeLo’s more popular singles from his solo album Awaken, My Love, was “MLK” which peaked at number 16 on the charts. The song was a major success and spawned the multi-million single featuring chart topping numbers from artists like Usher, Rihanna, and Kanye West. In 2021 he released another top chart-performing single called “Love Like Crazy.” This time around, the single topped out at number three on the charts.
While CeeLo was primarily a performer, he did release two other solid hip-hop albums in his first few years in the music industry: Day N Nite, Vol. 1, and Day N Nite, Vol. 2. The second album was largely considered to be better than the first and is considered by many to be his greatest work to date. The first album, featuring his Odd Future side, featured rappers Earl Sweatshirt and Dot Da Genius. While he did not participate in the production of this album, he was a major contributor as it was produced by the well-known engineer Don Jamies. He also worked with Timbaland and Kanye West, but they chose not to work together.
After Odd Future dissolved, CeeLo headed over to Familiar Sounds to release Two Dancers, his sophomore album. Much like its predecessor, this album was well received and critically acclaimed. As a result, CeeLo decided that it was time for him to begin his solo career and head out on his own. He began working with producers such as Pharrell, but according to him, he always felt more comfortable when producing alone.

CeeLo’s first single off of this new album was “Xxplosive.” It was an instant hit, garnering an enormous amount of support from fans and radio stations. This single also marked the first appearance of CeeLo’s new band camp site, which allows artists to sell their music directly to fans instead of through conventional record labels. A notable feature on the album was the video for the song “Bodak Yellow.” Although it is unclear who actually performed the song, many people assumed it to be CeeLo himself.
With the success of his debut album and the critical acclaim of his second album, it was only a matter of time before CeeLo took his solo act further. After releasing a few singles, including “Bodak Yellow,” “Take Me Away” and “Black Coffee,” CeeLo returned to the studio to produce a third album called Black Ice. This third album, which was supposed to be a follow up to the Black Ice, was released in May of this year. Although it was not as well received as the other two singles from the album, fans of CeeLo Green still enjoy his music. In fact, many have high hopes for what is expected to come out next CeeLo Green solo album.
