The greatest Independence Day party is of course the Philly 4th Of July Jam. But when these artists aren’t putting on a fantastic show, they like to celebrate in their own way.

Whether it’s a plane ride to Switzerland or a classic Elton John, Blacc uses these moments to create hit songs, like “Wake Me Up” with Avicii and “The Man.” In an interview with VH1, Blacc explains the stories and ideas behind each of the songs on his new album, Lift Your Spirit.
