Cee Lo appears to be living out his James Bond fantasies in “Bright Lights, Bigger City”. In the 60-second trailer, we see the lady killer riding in the back of a Caddy, mingling with models and shooting bad guys in what looks like a hotel kitchen. There’s a slick, living-large 80s vibe to the vid — which fits perfectly with the widescreen synth-and-strings tune (which probably not coincidentally evokes the theme from Michael J. Fox’s Bright Lights, Big City and the apparent “Billie Jean” sample). Jump below to check out “Green. Cee Lo Green.” in action.
No wonder there’s also speculation that those strings are an interpolation from the theme to the Bond flick You Only Live Twice. We aren’t sure of the plot of “Bright Lights, Bigger City”, but somehow it involves a helicopter getaway. Any guesses?
