CeeLo Green debuts video from Atlanta-filmed 'Barbershop 3' movie

The ever-busy CeeLo Green has a new video for “Working Class Heroes (Work)” from his current solo album, “Heart Blanche,” as well as the soundtrack to “Barbershop: The Next Cut” (aka "Barbershop 3"). The movie hits theaters April 15.

It’s a fun, joyful song that incorporates all of the styles at which CeeLo excels – R&B, pop and even a hint of disco.

The movie, which was filmed in Atlanta, had a premiere Thursday night in Atlanta with Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the film’s stars Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer and “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” maestro, Silento, in attendance.

Green, who performed at Terminal West earlier this month and gave some area students a peek at soundcheck before the show , has also released “Open Heart Acoustic Live” ( download it here ).

Take a listen to Green making it “Work.”
