Philadelphia born soul artist Bilal is one of the most dynamic artist of our time. Drawing from gospel, jazz, soul, blues, and hip-hop, Bilal made his major label debut with 2001’s First Born Second. The release sold over 300,000 copies and announced that he was an artist to watch. His sophomore recording Love For Sale leaked to the internet before its official release and would enjoy over half a million downloads. 2010 saw Airtights’ Revenge, which yielded the Grammy nominated 'Little Ones'. 

In February 2013 Bilal released A Love Surreal, which garnered widespread critical acclaim being named as one of “People Magazines” top ten albums of the year. And in 2015 he released his most celebrated project of his career, In Another Life produced entirely by retro soul producer Adrian Young, which was then followed by a Grammy Award for his participation on the Kendrick Lamar’s modern classic, To Pimp a Butterfly.
