CeeLo Green Puts on His “Sunday Shoes”
CeeLo dropped the new song "Sunday Shoes" yesterday (March 27) which details his early life coming up in the church. It's a fitting time for the Goodie Mob member to release the song with the passing of the Easter holiday.
"A sweet lil song about humble beginnings," CeeLo wrote about the track. "I was made a man by some very great women. I dedicate this one to Atlanta SUNDAY SHOES."
The track sees CeeLo singing about the guidance he received from his mother and grandmother. The Atlanta rapper/singer speaks about his spiritual journey, particularly his grandmother's message that she cannot force him to connect with a higher power.
"Sunday Shoes" sees CeeLo presenting a positive view of women just as the recently released "God Is a Woman" did. It appears CeeLo is making a concerted effort to repair his image after dealing with a sexual assault charge and making controversial statements on rape. The Gnarls Barkley member apologized for his bizarre comments on rape during an interview that took place last summer, calling his tweets "highly irresponsible."
"In those instances I do realize I’m an artist, that I’m flawed," CeeLo said. "And sometimes, you know, you don’t think. I was most certainly not thinking, not considering whom I might offend. And to those many people, however many or however few, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize again."
While under the cloud of controversy, CeeLo has tried to get the focus back on his music. The singer released a new solo album titled Heart Blanche last November and made a highly lauded appearance on Kendrick Lamar's untitled unmastered.
