Win Aloe Blacc's New Album
Soul singer and songwriter Aloe Blacc's current single 'The Man' features in the Dr Dre Beats advert with Cesc Fabregas
'The Man' is an uplifting, feel-good track, which samples Elton John's classic 'Your Song'. LIFT YOUR SPIRIT follows up Blacc's collaboration as vocalist and co-writer on well-known DJ/producer Avicii's track 'Wake Me Up', a song that hit the Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on its Hot Dance Club Songs and Dance/Electronic Songs charts, as well as in 102 countries around the world, including the U.K., where it was the third-biggest selling single of the year.
Born in Southern California to Panamanian parents, Blacc released his first hip-hop mixtape in 1996 and was associated with the indie hip-hop scene for many years thanks to his rap duo Emanon (alongside DJ Exile) and touring with the collective Lootpack before going solo. In 2006, he signed to Stones Throw Records and released his genre-bending debut solo album Shine Through, followed by 2010's Good Things, producing the world-wide hit song 'I Need A Dollar'. Good Things has sold more than 2 million units globally and has been certified gold in France, Germany, and the U.K. In 2012, Blacc was nominated for two BRIT Awards.
