Aloe Blacc’s latest offering, “Love is the Answer,” offers yet again a soulful vibe with a thick bass and peppy claps, with production by none other than Pharrell. While he might have caught his break with 2010′s “I Need A Dollar,” which was used as the theme song to the HBO series How To Make It in America and “The Man” is background music for the Beats by Dr. Dre commercials featuring Kevin Garnett and Colin Kaepernick, and Richard Sherman.
“The specific issue this video is related to is called ‘willful defiance’ and it’s an issue that has affected the inner cities for some time,” Blacc explains. “The reason why I wanted to express my concerns for this issue in the video for ‘Love Is The Answer’ is because there has to be a better solution to the problem of troubled teens, there has to be some sort of community decision and action that can happen around helping to guide these kids. I think this is a situation where the village needs to help raise the child.”
Aloe Blacc’s Wake Me Up EP is available now.
