Rapper and singer Aloe Blacc first caught the attention of U.S. listeners in 2010 when his single "I Need a Dollar" was used as the theme song for HBO's How to Make It in America. The song's success helped propel his second album, 2011's Good Things, to gold status in the U.K., France, Germany and Australia. After signing with XIX Recordings/Interscope Records, Blacc released his third solo album, List Your Spirit, in 2013. That same year, Blacc also saw his song "Wake Me Up," which he co-wrote with Avicii and provided vocals for, reach No. 1 in 102 countries.
