Song of the Day: I Need A Dollar, Aloe Blacc (With a Bonus Track!)

This dapper, Mos Def lookalike is a little known commodity over here in the US, but he’s gotten big over in England. Blessed with a vocal delivery that is equal parts Bill Withers and Ray Lamontange, he is an outstanding talent and his band is as soulful and funky to match.  Check out his hit I Need A Dollar on the flipside, along with some nice bonuses. As always, just right click the songs to download, but this is an artist that you should definitely support

I Need A Dollar- Aloe Blacc

Femme Fatale (Velvet Underground)- Aloe Blacc

Never has the Velvet Undergound sounded so soulful! And the arrangement is perfect.

And he also does a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” that would make Ella Fitzgerald proud.
