Bilal’s “Levels” Video

FULL SCREEN
The Sounds of VTech / Bilal Levels

Check out the new video from Bilal‘s latest album Airtight’s Revenge, the directorial debut by highly acclaimed musician Flying Lotus. This video for “Levels” is an appropriate spaced-out trip with multi-dimensional planes, omniscient third eyes, and naturally, Erykah Badu as the goddess. The video also includes a cameo from Thundercat and the producer of the song, Shafiq Husayn. Congratulations to Bilal on his Grammy nomination for the song dedicated to his children, “Little One,” another great single from Airtight’s Revenge.

Love him or hate him, Wyclef Jean remains relevant to our culture in more ways than one. His EP If I Were President: My Haitian Experience was released in December 2010 and now he’s released the video for “Earthquake.”
