Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” currently sits in #4 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts making it one of the hottest songs right now. However, the man behind the unforgettable lyrics of the song is rarely talked about, in fact he’s actually a well-accomplished independent artist in his own right. Meet Aloe Blacc, a singer and songwriter who like most musicians struggled for nearly a decade before coming out with his single “I Need a Dollar”, which currently holds over 25 million views on YouTube. He also recently released his own version of “Wake Me Up” with a powerful video touching on immigration issues.
