Here are the haute secrets of recording artist Aloe Blacc, who we have officially dubbed “The Man” for the success of hits like “Wake Me Up”, “Hey Brother”, “I Need a Dollar” and, naturally, “The Man.” In addition to churning out massive hits, the musician has recently partnered with the Lincoln Motor Company and Interscope Records to create an interactive music video for his new song “Love is the Answer.” The video – produced by Legs and directed by Radical Friend – was teased during one of four Lincoln ad spots that aired during this year’s Grammy Awards telecast and is available on the Lincoln YouTube channel. Here is this man-of-the-moment’s insiders guide to the City of Angels.
