Viral Video: Aloe Blacc Covers Coldplay’s “Magic”


As we finished the show today, I was closing up my computer and stumbled across the new Coldplay video for the first single off their new album Ghost Stories, titled “Magic.”

I have to admit, I really dug it and immediately thought of that famous scene with Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd from The 40-Year-Old Virgin. “You know how I know you’re gay? How? You like Coldplay.”

Orange County native Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins III, better known as Aloe Blacc, is new to the scene compared to rock veteran Chris Martin, but has seen a ton of success this year, most recently with his second single, “The Man,” from his album Lift Your Spirit.

Aloe just took a trip across the pond and paid a visit to the BBC Radio 1 studios, where he covered Coldplay’s “Magic” for today’s Viral Video of the Day.
