Nothing to say really but enjoy, Aloe Blacc's new video for "Femme Fatale" so soulful and lovely. Grab the album @ Stones Throw
Two unsung heroes from 2 of Michigan's most influential crews combine forces to author a coming of age story inspired by the infamous era of high top fades, eye brow parts, and house parties. The album revolves around life, love, women and fashion as a solute to artists such as Teddy Riley, Bobby Brown, Michael Jackson, New Edition and Kid n Play who made songs that everyone could relate to.
In addition to being conceptually refreshing, the album is just as musically intriguing as producers Vaughan T, 14KT, Nick Speed, ZO!, and Forkcast sample and “flip” classic new jack swing records in a way that keeps listeners engaged.
Features and contributors include: Buff 1, Mayer Hawthorne, Big Tone, 14KT, Ro Spit, Nick Speed, Aloe Blacc, Zo!, Ella, and Sole Deacon. And even better, its available for FREE DOWNLOAD.
