Quantcast

I've been singing the praise of Bilal's upcoming LP, Airtight's Revenge for a while now. Today, you can begin to experience it for yourself with the release of the first official single "Restart." Take a listen to track 2 off the LP, which was produced by Bilal and Steve McKie (Jill Scott, Estelle). You can buy the song on iTunes, which also includes an instrumental version as well as a remix by L.A. experimental producer Deadelus. Airtight's Revenge will be in stores September 14th via Plug Research.

    I am a big fan of Bilal, but I don’t to much care for the new style, can I say… I want the old Bilal back!!!…I mean I understand new direction and trying to cater to a broader audience, but I miss the soul/ neo soul, story telling thru song Bilal..I am still a supporter and I will def buy the CD..Love u Bilal

  • Augusts1

    Liking this quite a bit & downloaded it! And I haven’t been much of a fan in the past.

  • To the person speaking to the vocalist:

    Don’t confuse growth with a quick jump on the neo-punk/geek 80′s wave bandwagon. This is okay, it ain’t what he has succesfully done on his last two projects, which is break new ground and craft a unique style.

  • Promeneur

    I really like it but why you guys have to be harsh with “vocalist”, he doesnt like and what ?? It’s music, it’s subjective !

  • duck

    I agree with “Vocalist” and “to the person speaking to the vocalist”. Never been that into “disco punk”. Definitely different, but not enough jazz and soul for me. Dude is always good with mixing it up concerning genres on his projects, so it’ll be interesting to see what the rest of the project sounds like.

  • RJG

    Sounds so refreshing. The Neo Soul is a bit played out. This song sounds clean and unique. He is finding his own sound. Can’t wait for the new album!

  • Promeneur

    Ok I had to come back, this is DOPE, sorry for you R&B lovers but don’t worry there are plenty of other guys who are still doig that “good” R&B / soul type of music : maxwell, Geno Young, Kem, ect

  • Bang Bang

    Bilal is the man and this is incredible.

    ….and Neo Soul is DEAD! Glad to see Black artists progressing instead of rehashing their old music or 70′s music

  • Vocalist got yo back

    I feel the same way,there mostly youngstas,who grew up off of nickoloadean or whatever.they wouldn’t undastand.Don’t fix it,if it aint broke.DAMN I MISS THE SOUL!

  • TYPING_MY_FINAL_TO BILAL’S MUSIC

    Has been one of the BEST featured artist on everyone else’s songs….His two albums…great…this new one…will be great. Meet Bilals vocals in college on the Talib Kweli “Talk to YOu” song. The girl I was feeling at the time…well…we felt the song together if you know what i mean……THANKS BILAL…THANK YOU MUSIC….AMEN!!!

  • Cheryl da Pearl

    First Born Second was definitely a masterpiece. Soul Sista was da ish. Everything on that joint was a burner. He’s such an underrated artist who’s extremely talented and much deserving of bigger and greater things. I’m feeling this one. Keep doing you B. Grow, flourish and spread luv. Peace!
