Listen to Aloe Blacc on iHeartRadio

Aloe Blacc may be "The Man" now, but before that he was featured on Avicii's enormous crossover hit "Wake Me Up."

He believes his contribution to Avicii's "Wake Me Up" has supplied his single "The Man" with the momentum to climb the charts. 

In an interview with "Billboard," the singer says "Wake Me Up's" success has "primed" people to appreciate his voice as well as his songwriting skills. 

With momentum building behind "The Man," Aloe Blacc is gearing up to release his third studio album, Life Your Spirit, which will make its U.S. debut on March 11th.  He says the lead up to the album's release makes him feel like he's living "a whole new existence."
