Cee Lo Green, Co-Writer, 'Fuck You!'
TRACK SALES: 5.4 million
ALBUM SALES: 458,000
TOTAL SONGWRITING ROYALTIES: $533,078
One of five songwriters for his instant viral smash, Cee Lo has taken both versions of 2010's "Fuck You!" just about everywhere, from the Grammy Awards to The Muppets. His record label, Elektra, is probably not super-excited about the lopsided track-to-album numbers, as it makes far more profit off albums than tracks. But the songwriters get a uniform rate – 9.1 cents – whether it sells via iTunes or on The Lady Killer CD.
