Single of the Day: Aloe Blacc – The Man 

Released by: Universal Music Indonesia

Pasca kesuksesannya membantu Avicii dalam Wake Me Up, nama Aloe Blacc memang menjadi cukup menjulang. Tidak heran jika album ketiganya, Lift Your Spirit, mendapat sambutan yang cukup meriah. Tidak hanya itu, single The Man yang terdapat di dalamnya juga mencuri perhatian dengan bertengger di posisi 8 di Billboard Top 100 dan nomor 1 di Skotlandia dan Inggris.

Lantas, apa istimewanya single ini? The Man mengambil sampel lagu Your Man milik Elton John, terutama di bagian lirik “And you can tell everybody,” akan tetapi kemudian lagu mengambil jalur yang berbeda. Memadukan antara soul, RnB, gospel dan juga pop, The Man merupakan ajang bagi Aloe Blacc untuk memamerkan vokalnya yang khas.

Kekuatan The Man lainnya terletak pada dinamika melodinya. Tidak terlalu berlebihan dalam naik turunnya namun memberi penekanan yang cukup kuat pada beat yang ritmis, sehingga lagu terdengar begitu bertenaga, meski sebenarnya pace yang diusungnya bergerak dalam tempo medium saja.

Vokal dan cara bernyanyu Aloe Blacc terkadang agak mengingatkan seseorang, meski mungkin sulit meraba siapa dia. Untunglah hal tersebut tidak menjadi halangan untuk dapat menyukai lagu ini. Tidak hanya menyebarkan romansa yang kental, The Man merupakan lagu pop-soul-rnb yang segar dan menghanyutkan.

LYRIC
[Chorus:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Verse 1:]
I believe every lie that I ever told
Paid for every heart that I ever stole
I played my cards and I didn’t fold
Well it ain’t that hard when you got soul (this is my world)
Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I been through the worst but I still give my best
God made my mold different from the rest
Then he broke that mold so I know I’m blessed (this is my world)

[Bridge:]
Stand up now and face the sun
Won’t hide my tail or turn and run
It’s time to do what must be done
Be a king when kingdom comes

[Hook:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Chorus:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Verse 2:]
I got all the answers to your questions
I’ll be the teacher you can be the lesson
I’ll be the preacher you be the confession
I’ll be the quick relief to all your stressin’ (this is my world)
It’s a thin line between love and hate
Is you really real or is you really fake
I’m a soldier standing on my feet
No surrender and I won’t retreat (this is my world)

[Bridge:]
Stand up now and face the sun
Won’t hide my tail or turn and run
It’s time to do what must be done
Be a king when kingdom comes

[Hook:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Chorus:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Ad lib:]
I’m the man
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all
I’m the man
Go ahead and tell everybody what I’m saying y’all

[Hook 3x:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man

[Chorus:]
Well you can tell everybody
Yeah you can tell everybody
Go ahead and tell everybody
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
Yes I am, yes I am, yes I am
I’m the man, I’m the man, I’m the man
