First, I really like Aloe Blacc already…
Aloe Blacc made this music video about immigration and border crossing. Colorlines calls it “Undocumented and Unafraid”.
It’s not perfect, but it brings awesome attention to the issue. Hopefully gets larger audiences to think about what’s going on!
On a different note, the song (which is not my favorite) is a huuuuge worldwide hit (more popular than Get Lucky in Europe) HOWEVER the song is by Swedish ‘DJ” Avicii, Aloe Blacc isn’t even credited. Here is the Avicii version. And of course in Avicii’s video it’s about a white girl with a horse.
Just seems kinda fucked up that Avicii gets to brand Aloe Blacc’s voice and become wildly popular with this bullshit. While Aloe Blacc is so awesome in all areas but no one seems to care.
