Doing her “Dance Apocalyptic” like she’s doing it for TV (per the vision of director Wendy Morgan). You can get “Dance Apocalyptic” and pre-order “The Electric Lady” album on iTunes.

(Oh… by the way… Breaking News: There are zombies in Atlanta! And now, back to our off the chain show!)

Cee-Lo Green Is Catching ‘Bodies’ With His New Movie Trailer

One of the standout tracks on Cee-Lo Green’s ‘Lady Killer’ album is a song called ‘Bodies’ produced by Salaam Remi. This trailer dropped a day or two ago which suggests it’s an upcoming movie featuring Kerry Washinton & Janelle Monae. I seriously doubt it’s a full length movie, but I assume it will be more of a epically cinematic video similar to the one Cee Lo dropped for ‘Bright Lights, Bigger City’. Not only did I enjoy the song, but I enjoyed the look & feel of the video for that one. In case you missed the video for ‘Bright Lights, Bigger City’ I’ve included it after the jump….
