In 2013, the newly minted X Ambassadors released their sophomore EP, Love Songs Drug Songs, on Interscope. The following year, the group received wider exposure when "The Jungle," a collaboration with Jamie N Commons, was featured in a commercial for Dr. Dre's electronics/headphones company Beats. On the heels of this success, X Ambassadors released their third EP, The Reason. In 2015, they released their debut full-length, VHS, which featured production from Alex Da Kid and included the single "Renegades." The album reached number seven on the Billboard 200.


This year Blacc made his first major-label debut via XIX Recordings/Interscope Records in September with the release of his EP, entitled “Wake Me Up”. Blacc has also been in the studio working on his upcoming album, Lift Your Spirit, with such songwriters and producers as Pharrell, DJ Khalil and Harold Lilly, among others. “I think the tie that binds is having good producers who can keep me in check and tailor a focused sound,” he says. Blacc’s goal for the album is to weave nearly two decades worth of style, vision, and soul into his strongest offering yet; one designed to firmly connect his undeniable talent with the American market as well as the rest of the world. The constant amidst Blacc’s sonic amalgam is his lyrical perceptiveness. “The one thing that might connect it all is my storytelling,” he says. With this latest chapter in an unpredictable career, the story of Aloe Blacc continues to unfold.
