Aloe Blacc

"I Need a Dollar," the straightforward and soulful lead single off 2010’s Good Things might open HBO’s How to Make It in America series, but assisted by a remix from Britain’s DJ Zinc, the tune only caught on across the Atlantic, reaching number two in the U.K. and even number one in Belgium. Before physically going to Europe to finish the year, the man behind the song—the Panamanian-born, American-raised Aloe Blacc—plays the Highline Ballroom, attempting to prove that he’s been hiding in plain sight this whole time.
