Aloe Blacc’s found fame again with single “The Man”, but he wasn’t always so confident about the track.

In fact, Aloe reveals to On Air with Ryan Seacrest it took Dr. Dre‘s blunt advice to get the track to the right place.

Aloe shares: “He said basically, that I could do better. I just needed to figure out a way to be as effective as a Marvin Gaye. Somebody who is able to be masculine and still represent music that crossed for women and men. I think I was able to do that with ‘The Man.’”
