Is Aloe Blacc Married? Details on His Wife, Maya

Singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc has been named one of the best artists of our time. He is best known for his singles “I Need a Dollar”, “The Man”, which topped the charts in the UK. He is probably most known, however, for writing and performing vocals on Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”, which topped the charts in 22 countries, including the United States. 

While music remains a passion of Aloe’s, there is no denying that his family takes precedence. Aloe Blacc married his wife, Maya Jupiter, in 2010 and since then, the two have been a musical force for their family and for the industry. 

Aloe Blacc’s wife is also a musician.

The couple met when Maya was working on her radio show and Aloe was a guest. “Maya and I met while I was at a music conference in Melbourne, Australia. Maya was hosting a national radio and television show and interviewed me,” he told People. “This was before I had any major success, so I was lucky to get an interview. We kept in touch and when she came to the U.S. in 2007 for the Grammys, I got lucky with another interview.”

“At the time, it was Valentine’s week, so I decided to ask her out. I took her to a concert at the House of Blues and that’s what started the beginning of our dating relationship,” he continued.

Aloe wrote the song “I Do” to honor Maya.

When Aloe Blacc and Maya were headed for their 10th wedding anniversary, Aloe decided it was time to write her a love song. “The song ‘I Do’ I wrote and dedicated to my wife,” he told Entertainer Magazine about the song.

“I decided the 10th anniversary was a great moment to dedicate a song to her. The music video is film footage from our wedding ceremony. The song is from the universal standpoint of the process of finding love,” he continued.

When it comes to Maya and Aloe’s love story. Aloe finds it remarkable that two very different people on opposite sides of the world connected and found each other. “We are from two different continents and were an ocean apart,” he said.

“We realized that love is something that ultimately chooses you, rather than you choosing it. The odds of us finding each other was amazing. She was raised in Sydney and born in Mexico only two weeks apart from me. Potentially, we could have met on the same soil in the same coast, but her parents moved to Australia and she was raised there,” he continued.
