Cee Lo Green Releases Early Christmas Ditty ‘Run Rudolph Run’
What do you get when you mix Saint Nick with some gorgeous females elves? A rocking holiday visualizer from Cee Lo Green! To get everyone in the Christmas spirit, the Grammy-winning crooner released his ditty, ‘Run Rudolph Run.’
The song appears on his upcoming holiday album ‘Cee Lo’s Magic Moment,’ which is due out on Oct. 30. In the Christmas visualizer, Santa Claus is cruising in his purple Rolls-Royce with three scantily-clad hotties in the backseat spreading yuletide merriment. We don’t think Ms. Claus would approve of this, but we digress.
You might be familiar with the song as it’s a contemporary remake of Chuck Berry’s 1958 song, which has been played in many movies including the holiday classic ‘Home Alone.’
Cee Lo Green plans to film a Christmas television special to coincide with the release of his holiday album. The singer-rapper revealed that he invited some of the ‘Voice‘ contestants to join him in the celebration. “I’ve invited about, I think it’s going to be 19 in total,” he said. “All of my people are coming from Season 3 as we stand, and I’m going back to Season 1, getting Nakia, Nicci, Vicci, Jamar [and] Cheesa.”
Cee Lo’s X-Mas special will air on Nov. 26 via the Warner channel.
Cee Lo Green’s ‘Magic Moment’ album boast 14 revisions of your favorite Christmas songs. The collection includes duets with fellow ‘Voice’ judge Christina Aguilera (‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’), the Muppets (‘All I Need Is Love’), Rod Stewart (‘Merry Christmas, Baby’) and a cappella group Straight No Chaser (‘You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch’).
