Aloe Blacc Overcomes Adversity in ‘The Man’ Video

There’s no escaping Aloe Blacc’s aspirational jam ‘The Man,’ which has been featured prominently in a Beats by Dre commercial. Now comes the video, which shows the crooner going back in time and recapturing historic moments of the past.

In the clip, directed by filmmaker Matty Barnes, Blacc revisits historical figures and triumphant moments from the ’60s and ’70s. In the first scene, the singer recreates Marvin Gaye’s classic album ‘What’s Going On.’ Then that’s followed by images of an uprising, the Selma to Montgomery March and Muhammad Ali leaving prison after being jailed for not signing up for the draft.

In essence, the visual showcases the adversities that black people had to overcome throughout American history.

Aloe Blacc’s ‘The Man’ is featured on his upcoming album, ‘Lift Your Spirit,’ due March 11.
