They sound to me like gnarls Barkley songs. Superstar is by lupe fiasco and you got me is by 1 block radius.

There’s a certain huskiness in Matthew Santos’ voice (the guy who sings the chorus of Superstar). I suppose it’s similar to Cee-Lo’s voice (one of the men behind Gnarls Barkley). Actually, maybe it’s how they pronounce their words.

1 Block Radius doesn’t really sound similar to me.

I don’t think Matthew Santos sounds anything like Cee-Lo. Cee-Lo’s voice has some odd texture to it that almost sounds like he has bad allergies, but it works for him. Santos, on the other hand, has a high voice, but is more smooth with his vocals.

@Wine – Yeah… now that you mention it, Cee-Lo is more nasally, also. Maybe it’s the musical phrasing (rather than the voices) that rings familiar?

I honestly don’t know how these songs were connected. 1 Block Radius sounds like someone else, but I can’t put my finger on it.
