Continuing his rise to fame, Bruno Mars speaks with Cee-Lo about teaming up with Philip Lawrence (of the Smeezingtons) to help produce the Goodie Mob’s latest track.
Talk about the perfect marriage, we been fans of Cee-Lo for real. And we became labelmates and I was just feeding that to them. We got to get in. I know he’s working on something, we got to do something.’ So he comes in the session, and it was one of the most organic sessions.
We wrote a song and it’s not for radio, obviously, with the title. We’re probably gonna have to work on that. But it was a dream session come true; that was the ideal collaboration. Everyone was just putting their minds together and [we came] up with one of our favorite tracks we’ve ever done… He came in and we started singing it for him. And he’s just, ‘I love that, man. That’s beautiful.’ And we said, ‘Let’s go,’ and that’s all we really had — just that concept — and now it’s blowing up.
Also, Bruno revealed that his debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans is looking at an October 5th release.
