    Good Luck Getting Chromeo's New Song "Jealous" Out Of Your Head

    The lovably over-the-top production duo are back with a new, super-polished album. But they're still just schmucks.

    Chromeo — the Canadian duo who've been in the Hall & Oates-indebted funk game for a decade — will release a new album called White Women in May. It'll be their first album in four years, and according to lead vocalist Dave 1, will unveil a "new Chromeo: poppier perhaps, but more high octane, turbo-charged funk."

    The album's opening track, “Jealous (I Ain’t With It),” is debuting today on BuzzFeed.

    The song’s melody is big and cocky, but its lyrics are all about being a fool.

    Listen closely 30 seconds in — that pre-chorus was inspired by Wyclef and Mary J. Blige's slept-on 2000 duet “911,” which Dave heard at a strip club in Jamaica while he was writing.

    At first, Chromeo's P-Thugg thought "Jealous" was "too Katy Perry."

    Sometimes, it just takes dudes awhile to get over themselves.

    Update — Mar. 18, 10:30 a.m. ET: “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” now has a great video. Watch Chromeo be scummy in a wedding chapel:
