The Man - Aloe Blacc

Speed: 86 bpm

The DJ's Take: I don't know if you'll be blasting this at the club, but it's doing well on the charts and getting a lot of play on ESPN and those Beats By Dre ads, right? Kind of reminds me of Live Your Life; nice triumphant anthem that can potentially get people waving their hands in the air in a Top 40 bar setting. This could also go well with Be As You Are (JordanXL Remix) - Mike Posner, Send My Love - Adele, Live Your Life - Rihanna, Royals, American Oxygen - Rihanna and Paper Planes. And in case you're wondering where you've heard that hook before, yes - he's giving a big nod to Elton John.
