Aloe Blacc Taps Kid Ink for ‘The Man’ Remix
Aloe Blacc's anthemic tune 'The Man' became a huge hit after it was featured in a Beats by Dre commercial last year. With the song currently in the Top 10 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart, the soul man has now released the remix featuring in-demand rapper Kid Ink.
Over a trumpet-driven production, Blacc sings of triumphantly overcoming obstacles while maintaining his faith in a higher power.
"Somewhere I heard that life is a test / I've been through the worst, but I still gave my best / God made my mold different from the rest / Then he broke that mold so I know that I'm blessed," he croons.
Kid Ink spits positive rhymes in his verse in which he talks about being resilient and achieving his goals.
"I’m the man, I’m the man I’m the man / Feels like the city is right in my hands / I caught him off guard but it always been the plan / Bigger than anything you could ever understand," he raps.
The song is a perfect compliment to Blacc's previous single, 'Wake Me Up,' a song he co-wrote with Avicii hit No. 1 in over 100 countries.
In addition, Blacc is releasing the follow-up to his stellar 2010 album 'Good Things' with his new album, 'Lift Your Spirits.' The collection will arrive in stores on March 25. You can pre-order the album via iTunes.
Aloe Blacc is certainly the man.
