Audio Premiere: Bilal "Think It Over" (Acoustic)
If it’s superbowl time, that means we are creeping up on Valentine’s season–or as Bilal thinks of it “my time to shine.” To set the proper tone, the consumate soulman is sharing some special treats with music fans–which we are proud to be premiering here on okayplayer! Last summer while on a stop on his Little Ones tour, Bilal and his band of brothers visited the Tom Joyner Morning Show Red Velvet Studio and recorded live acoustic versions of four of his favorite joints off Airtight’s Revenge. These rare one-take masterpieces are the purest kind of goose-bump material, cherished by the select few who’ve had the chance to experience them–and now that intimate circle has been expanded to include you. The first rarity in the goodie bag is this sublime rendition of “Think It Over” and we’ll be premiering the other three over the next few weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day. The big payoff, of course, is Bilal’s by now legendary V-day concert at SOB’s here in NY–which we will be streaming live here on OKP, powered by Livestream Concerts. Enjoy, and start thinking about who you want to choo-choo-choose.
