Cee Lo Green is a man of love. On his new track “Only You,” the crooner swoons as he tells upstart singer Lauriana Mae that she’s the only one who can “stop the bleeding.” In the process, he floats over the track’s unfussy bass groove, curling the end of each line with potential heartbreak, then unleashes the catchy chorus as he professes his feelings for Mae. “It’s about two people on different paths, hoping for the best, hoping that those paths lead to each other,” Green says. “It’s like love lost or the acknowledgment of a love lost, but it’s still optimistic.”
“Only You” is from Cee Lo’s forthcoming, still-untitled album. No release date has been set.
