No it’s not some sort of viral video for a Family Matters reunion, it’s actually the official video for Cee Lo Green‘s latest single “Cry Baby” as well as an opportunity for Jaleel White to get a check. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to this song. I didn’t miss anything because it’s not that special. What is special is that this is the 5th single from The Lady Killer (6th if you count the still epic “Bodies”). If you would have told me that I would still be seeing videos from this album, I would of said that Rihanna would have put out another album first. Luckily for you, me, and the goats of Barbados, I was wrong.
This video did make me giggle. Particularly, the opening scene where Jaleel shushes her and proclaims “I’m Cee Lo Green” as if that means he has too many options than to stay with one beautiful woman. Money does make you win after all. Cee Lo has committed to creating a vintage look for the majorly released singles and that holds true here with more 50’s stylings and an overtly variety-style premise. It’s cute. Does it make me want to play it over? Not really.
Frankly, I think I enjoyed Cee Lo more when he has other people to balance out the crazy. Bring on the Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley albums! Let’s hear em!
