DOWNLOAD the track “All Matter” on

Bilal’s Airtight’s Revenge is one of the best R&B albums of the year, and “All Matter” is the album’s best track. A minor-key ballad set atop turbulent drums, the song is made by Bilal’s unbelievable vocal performance, especially a surging “What is love?!” at the chorus and corkscrew, asymmetric singing in the verses. A sophisticated yet immediate track, Bilal shows how, even after a nine year (!) delay, he’s still in the vanguard of contemporary R&B. Airtight’s Revenge is out now on Plug Research.
