The Man

The Man by Aloe Blacc was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, April 12, 2014 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This pays tribute to Elton John's 1970 hit "Your Song" by opening its chorus with the same "you can tell everybody" line. Blacc turns the interpolation on its head by twisting the lyric about the effect a loved one has on somebody's life into an anthem for believing in oneself. The title appears 41 times in this song. The song's music video revisits both some of the adversities that African Americans have had to overcome and a selection of their triumphs. It was directed by American filmmaker Mathew Cullen. This topped the UK singles chart. The sales were enhanced by Blacc's performance of the song on the British edition of The Voice.
