Aloe Blacc Song “The Man” In Beats Commercial With Colin Kaepernick

You’ve probably gotten to know California’s singer/songwriter Aloe Blacc by asking, “Whose Singing That Song”, more than looking for anything actually released by the 35 year old R&B artist. In 2013 he rose to fame for the single “Wake Me Up” by Swedish DJ Avicii, which he co-wrote and sang. It reached number one in multiple countries and on multiple charts. If you’ve been watching the NFL playoffs recently, you may have heard Aloe’s song “The Man” playing in a Beats by Dre commercial, featuring San Fransico 49ers quaterback, Colin Kaepernick.

The Commercial titled “Hear What You Want”, has the playoff favorite arriving in a bus for a game, while angry fans of the opposing team wait outside screaming and throwing things at him. Rather than lash out, the 26 year old American football player, uses both his Beats and the track “The Man” by Blacc, to drowned out the crowd. The combination of NFL’s tattooed Quarterback and the smooth, soulful sound of Aloe, will have viewers running to their computers to find out who it is.

Aloe Blacc’s latest EP, Wake Me Up is out now on iTunes and features the song “The Man”. You can watch the official lyric video above and the commercial  below.
