Leaving the vibe of his more notable work of the year behind, Aloe Blacc today aims to raise awareness in his latest visual for the Pharrell-produced “Love Is The Answer”.
Relating to the escalating issue of disputable suspensions in our school systems, Aloe’s visual depicts two similarly confronted individuals and two polar opposite outcomes. “The specific issue this video is related to is called ‘wilful defiance’ and it’s an issue that has affected the inner cities for some time,” Aloe explains. ”The reason why I wanted to express my concerns for this issue in the video for ‘Love Is The Answer’ is because there has to be a better solution to the problem of troubled teens, there has to be some sort of community decision and action that can happen around helping to guide these kids. I think this is a situation where the village needs to help raise the child.”
