Obviously MySpace is making waves on the web — estimated 37 million unique users a week, up 37% since Week 1 — but one specific page has been a magnet for hip hop, soul, and R & B enthusiasts as of late. Gnarls Barkley, the combined efforts of southern gospel style rapper Cee Lo Green and the Midas touch DJ Danger Doom, is the new e-craze.
The featured song on their myspace page, Crazy, has made history by becoming the #1 single in the United Kingdom without even officially being released in physical form. Download sales alone propelled this 3 minute track to the top of the charts.
Popularity of this group is sure to follow in the US as the anticipation of the May album release approaches. We listened to the song 12 times yesterday, and we suggest you do the same.
