Rapper Cee-Lo and producer Jazze Pha have teamed for a collaborative album, "The Happy Hour," due in November via Pha's Sho'Nuff Recordings/Capitol. The title cut jumps 14-8 this week on Billboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart; an accompanying video was recently shot in Atlanta.

"The Happy Hour" will feature guest appearances from Nate Dogg, Keith Sweat and former Guy member Aaron Hall, with other artists to be confirmed.

"Working with Cee-Lo is like working with my favorite brother," Jazze Pha says. "We shared so many of the same interests already that once it got to the music it was like second nature. You're looking at a perfect match."

As previously reported, Pha produced Brooke Valentine's cover of the 1970s hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie," which serves as the first single from Sanctuary's upcoming "Roll Bounce" soundtrack.

Sho'Nuff's roster already includes breakthrough R&B artist Ciara, Boyz In The Hood member Jody Breeze, Nephu and Tone Tone.
