It was amazing, because actually I wanted to work with Aloe on stuff for myself anyway. I personally didn’t know the song, the original 'The Candy Man', so I listened to it and I was like, 'Aloe's the perfect voice for that!' I thought that was an amazing challenge to take on. Everything lined up so perfectly that there was literally no reason not to do it.
