Bilal: Airtight’s Revenge Out Today

There are a lot of great new releases today, but possibly the best one is Bilal‘s Airtight Revenge. Back after years of obstacles with record labels, his new album is a beautiful departure from the ‘neo-soul’ box which seemed to form around him before. The sound on Airtight’s Revenge is still soul, and very new, but it’s way out of any box we would have imagined.

If you don’t believe that Bilal is magic, here are Questlove, Erykah Badu and Janelle Monáe to explain it to you, their official endorsements. After the jump, watch each of their respective videos by Plug Research and learn how Bilal helped shape the sound of these artists.
