"Brooklyn in the Summer" was co-penned by Blacc, and it is the lead single from his forthcoming studio album, which will be released later in 2018.
Blacc's rich vocals on "Brooklyn in the Summer" are bluesy and sultry. It has a retro Earth, Wind & Fire meets Bruno Mars vibe to it.
Blacc's breakthrough studio album, Lift Your Spirit, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts, and "Wake Me Up," his collaboration with world renowned DJ and producer Avicii catapulted him to super-stardom. ("Wake Me Up" peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and it reached No. 1 in many countries all over the world).
Most recently, the R&B musician served as the guide for the MacGillivray Freeman/Brand USA film America's Musical Journey, where Blacc traveled all over the country, and traced the roots of the country's music and he followed the footsteps of Louis Armstrong.
The Verdict
Overall, Aloe Blacc charms on his new single "Brooklyn in the Summer." His voice is smooth as silk, and the song is definitely a keeper. It garners an A rating.
