Glad to see this video & hear the song. It's great hearing it mixed by Avicii but the actual original song by Aloe Blacc is very powerful. Great voice & especially video showcasing our countries immigration issue that needs to be addressed!
Making a comparison...
While I think Avicii's video is technically better crafted (cinematography, post-work, etc), it just looks like a really lame Ralph Lauren ad that failed to execute any meaningful metaphor—all the outcasts are models? C'mon, now. Blacc's video is so much more raw and honest. And it's interesting to note that when it cuts to scenes of Blacc singing in this video, it was sincere. But in Avicii's appearance in the "Ralph Lauren" version, it just felt a little egotistical (huge stadium performances, Avicii tattoos).
