Aloe Blacc Takes it ‘Real Slow’ with His Latest Song
Aloe Blacc is making sure he ends 2016 in a big way— the Cali native recently dropped his new song "Real Slow." It's been three years since the release of his album, Lift Your Spirit, and Aloe hasn't lost his groove yet.
Produced by DJ Khalil and Sam Barsh, who also produced Blacc's "The Man," the first verse begins with Aloe Blacc asking a simple question, "Can you keep a secret?" Blacc then goes on to ask several more questions and reveals how he feels about relationships, suggesting that he's not like this generation of men when it comes to being in a committed relationship—he's old school.
"Can you keep a secret? Would you kiss a tear?/Don't anybody know anymore how to keep anything to themselves?/I'm pretty sure I'm doubtful Too many scars to be an optimist/Yeah I'm just a fool from the old school who's still tryna be monogamous," he sings.
Throughout the entire song, Blacc goes back and forth trying to see if potential bae would be willing to take a chance on him. Aloe Blacc's voice on this track is sexy, the beat that carries the song is cool and adds to the mysterious persona that Blacc set up when he initially asked his first question, "Can you keep a secret?"
