Melody Thornton shook up the Internet a couple months back with her country-fried “Love Gun,” but the song’s release may have jumped the gun. Cee Lo Green includes the track on his third solo album The Lady Killer, only with Paradiso Girls’ Lauren Bennett handling vocals instead of the former Pussycat Doll.
Almost entirely similar to Melody’s version, the newly cut tune, co-produced by Cee Lo and Salaam Remi, plays in a different key and features Lauren taking the first verse and Cee Lo on the second. Compare the two versions of the slinky track below.
