Aloe Blacc - "Love Is The Answer" [prod. by Pharrell]
If he hasn’t proved to you that he’s here to stay, Aloe Blacc just dropped the deeply narrative visual treatment for his Pharrell produced single “Love Is The Answer” to put any and all doubts out of mind. The crooner-of-the-day has taken on the producer-of-the-day to churn out a track full-o-funk, sporting the bounce on the bottom, a soulful and minimal horn arrangement and a very Stevie Wonder-esque mid-song breakdown that will make you listen twice.
While he might have caught his break with 2010’s “I Need A Dollar,” Blacc is no stranger to star power, having started his come-up with Exile and various members of Lootpack back in the 90’s. Now he’ a go-to for everyone from Skateboard P to Avicii, whose “Wake Me Up” hit #1 on Billboard this past summer, which came off their collaborative LP True, which has been sitting pretty on charts all around the world.
