Bilal attempts to remedy a relationship on the rocks with the NEW debut single, "Back to Love" off his upcoming album A Love Surreal.
“Jumped up in the sky and somehow, we got stuck,” Bilal sings on the funk-jazz track. “How do we get back down to love?” The smooth meandering of Bilal’s vocals paints the picture of a couple navigating falling in and out of love. Throughout the smooth track, Bilal talks about the importance of rekindling that lost love and bringing a relationship back to what is most important.

CURRENT CD " AIRTIGHT REVENGE"
Bilal is considered by many to be an icon in the world of neo-soul, but he would define his “genre-blending music” as more of a fusion of funk, rock and jazz. Bilal became an institution in Urban culture after his critically-acclaimed debut, First Born Second, was released in 2001. He has collaborated with legends such as The Roots, D'Angelo, Common, and Erykah Badu, and despite label politics preventing an official follow up album until now, Bilal has toured around the world for the past decade, branding his signature falsetto, and building a loyal cult fanbase.
Bilal finally released his long-anticipated sophomore album, Airtight Revenge, on Plug Research September 14th to great critical acclaim and an elated reception from his fans. Bilal will keep touring in support of Airtight Revenge.
