look, i know what u're going thru, because from the first time he hummed at the BAM Prince Tribute, it was obvious i was watching a true *star*... and waiting (2 hear & see more) is the worst pain.

um, I just meant to say Bilal is a great singer. I am NOT saying he's fine, I am NOT saying he's sexy, all I'm saying is I'm not 19 (DAYUM!!!!). But uh, yeah....Bilal is a wonderful performer! :-) That's all there is to it.

I love Bilal's vocal stylings - kids got some serious pipes.

He's not too hard on the eyes either.

ok, i want to be a singer someday (how often have you heard that?!) and i listen to the greats of soul, you know. and today's music is really slacking, but i knew from the first time i heard him sing, i was like man, he's bad, and then when i saw his look and style, i felt that he is what is needed in r&b now: individuality. i mean that is why i cant front on the roots, lauryn hill, mos def, d'angelo, jazzyfatnastees, my dawg common, and yes, q-tip (his new video is hot; i think he wants to be on the okayplayer site! ha ha!), cause they are individuals in music.
24869, Individuality, babyyy!
Posted by guest, Sat Apr-15-00 05:43 PM
the man's an individual, he's got that '70s soul thing going on, and there's no doubt he's gonna blow up!! my only question is when is that album droppin'? oh, and who agrees that he needs an official site here at okayplayer?! come on, now!! it's the next movement!!!!

you don't know?! listen at the end of "funky for you", and you'll know who we're talking about! he also sings the hook of that song with jill scott, as well as the hook for "...pimp." i keep on hearing that he has a song on the love and basketball soundtrack, but i can't find any info on that outside of this site. and, of course, the big question is...WHEN"S THE ALBUM DROPPIN'???!!!

is anybody else wanting a bilal and d'angelo collabo, possibly on b's cd? that would be the ish! obviously nobody knows when it's dropping (i've asked a million times), so i'll just continue waiting til someone does. and when's that love and basketball sd. dropping? someone said yesterday, but i haven't heard a thing about it. i guess i'll go check the store. peace!

It is not very often you meet talanted people who are beyond down to earth. Bilal is not only one of the most talanted people i've had to pleasure to meet but also the man is funny as all get out! He's gonna go far in this music game. Keep your head up B and con't to do your thing.

My only question: when is the album gonna drop?

peace

Na, he's a real cool guy. I taught him how to sing back when he was a kid, but he couldnt cut it back then...so I told him to practice alot. I guess he did, because he's almost at MY skill level. I just wish yo...HE would have took control at the SOB's show last week...People didnt REALLY get a taste like they should have.

Is Bilal the same as Sons of Bilal?

I downloaded a Sons of Bilal song i found on FTP, entitled "Kevin Spacey" (if you listen to the song you'll understand the meaning), and its dope dope dope, the lyrics were well-thought out and the beat is this great jazzy tune... i can hook you up if you get at me... peace. :7
24888, that's not the same Bilal
