Aloe Blacc takes his single "Wake Me Up" a step further with this new video involving actors who are going through the actual problems that the video is depicting — the legalization of immigrants. One man is seeking work on a labor corner in L.A. One woman was born in the U.S. but deported with her mom. And another woman is fighting for her dad not to get deported. Aloe drives home this problem with the video that you likely wouldn't connect with the song itself. He also points us to ndlon.org for more. The song is very relatable — especially that chorus that is speaking to me right now — and you'll likely know this song if you know the Aviici hit of the same name (that samples this). Now the song takes on another meaning. Props, Aloe.
