Album: Cee Lo Green, The Lady Killer (Warner Bros)

He sang on the first song (Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy") to make it to No 1 in the UK based on digital download sales alone and his "Forget You" – here in both clean and original versions – kept Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow off the top spot.

There is, then, much to love about Cee Lo Green. This solo album perfectly captures the man's soul-pop spirit: part Walrus of Love, part audition for the next Bond theme. "When it comes to ladies, I have a licence to kill", he says at the off here. And who are we to argue?
