Pop-soul recording artist “Aloe Blacc” explains why people call him the modern day “Al Green”, his love of Hip-Hop & technology and his collaboration with the automotive giant “Lincoln” from the set of his ground-breaking new video for “Love is the Answer” on Maria Menounos' Black Hollywood Live Network.

(blackhollywoodlive.com) American singer, songwriter, rapper Aloe Blacc, explained the concept of his new video for “Love is The Answer” and what fans can expect. “What you as a viewer get to do is choose your adventure in the video…from the time the music starts you can either watch me coming through getting ready for my performance, or you can see the dancers getting ready as they’re preparing and stretching…in this case you get to direct the video.”

Aloe also spoke about his musical style on his new album. “What works for me is a folk-soul performance…but I’m a big fan of Hip-Hop music…so I wanted the sonic fidelity of a Dr. Dre album. I wanted the soulful musicality of a Stevie Wonder album and I wanted the grit and edge of a Jimmy Hendrix record”.

With a combination of soul, r&b, jazz, Hip-Hop and funk, Aloe is no stranger to being compared to several artists’. When asked about similarities to soul legends Al Green and Bill Withers he said; “Hey those are my teachers, what you expect?”

Aloe’s new video is in collaboration with Lincoln Motor Cars and premiered during Sunday’s 2014 Grammy’s. His new album “Lift Your Spirit” will be available 3/11/14, so get ready to hear a lot more from this talented musical star!
