Director Mikaël Colombu and Bilal have collaborated on several projects in the past. The most recent being the Robots video that we debuted on The Sounds of VTech on Election Day 2010. This time around, Colombu plays not only the role of director, but of interviewer as well. Take a look and see Bilal answer some questions you might have about his new album, Air Tight’s Revenge.
I gave Bilal random card questions before that unforgettable Paris ‘Bellevilloise’ show he did in July, 2010. Here he talks of the name Airtight, the Love for Sale LP, and K-CI Hailey from Jodeci. On or off that stage, Bilal is a pleasure to film and I think I could do that all day everyday. The individual strikes you with a certain lightness of being and a false carelessness that’s very amusing, if not hilarious. His on stage self is literally Shakespearian at times. I guess it’s only worth noting because it’s a plus on top of why we legitimately love him. I hope you enjoy this small moment of time we shared with Bilal. – Mikaël Colombu
