Reviews of the latest songs from R.Kelly, Cee Lo Green, and Pink

Posted on

R. Kelly, ”Shut Up”
Kels gets back into the ambling free-associative business to thank his fans and ask the legitimate question ”How many babies been made off me?” And if you’re starting rumors about his professional demise, well, he’s got two words for you. BKyle Anderson

Cee Lo Green, ”Anyway”
For Cee Lo, freakiness is close to godliness, so it’s a letdown that this new single, co-penned with Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, feels so generic. Over a standard chill-out disco melody, Cee croons, ”For worse or for better, you make me better.” It’s mostly for the worse. C-Melissa Maerz

Pink, ”Bridge of Light”
Who says flightless birds can’t spread their wings? Not the habitually fierce pop star, who builds a bridge of family-friendly uplift — midsong gospel-choir breakdown included — for Happy Feet Two‘s dancing anthropomorphic stars to waddle across. BLeah Greenblatt
