"The Man" is a song by American vocalist Aloe Blacc. First included on his EP Wake Me Up, the song was later released as the second single from his third studio album Lift Your Spirit by Interscope Records. Blacc co-wrote the track with its producers, DJ Khalil, as well as Sam Barsh and Daniel Seeff. Elton John and Bernie Taupin are also credited as co-writers, because the song's chorus is built upon an interpolation of the line " You can tell everybody" from John's 1971 single "Your Song", co-written with Taupin.
The song has become Blacc's most successful single as a solo artist to date; it sold 2.5 million copies in the United States as of December 2014, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. Outside the United States, "The Man" topped the charts in the United Kingdom and peaked within the top ten of the charts in Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and Sweden. On January 22, 2014, a remix of "The Man" featuring American rapper Kid Ink was released.File Hashes
