Bilal - Sirens II
Not featured on our front page since early February, when he unleashed critically-acclaimed junior set A Love Surreal, neo-soul mainstay Bilal returns at long last with a freshly-minted single off the follow-up. Frequent Ghostface collaborator Adrian Younge handles production on Sirens II, teaming up with Ali Shaheed to create a hip hop-tinged beat that’s simultaneously gritty and silky-smooth. As usual, the Purpose Music Group signee impresses on the vocal tip, delivering his mythologically-inspired lyrics in an effortless, understated fashion. Bilal’s next LP currently lacks both a drop date and a title, but we’ll keep you supplied with that latest news and tunes leading up to its eventual release.
