Bilal, preeminent vocalist and songwriter was nominated for Best Urban/Alternative Performance for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards for “Little One” from his third studio album, Airtight’s Revenge, which was released September 14 through Plug Research Music and Distributed by The Orchard.

Little One”, a smooth track with a soulful sound is dedicated to his sons. “My youngest son has Sickle Cell and my oldest son has Autisim. This song is for them”, stated Bilal. An advocate for Autism, last month Bilal led the 2010 Walk Now for Autism Speaks on the National Mall. The largest crowd ever assembled in our nation’s capital for autism walked from the Capitol Building to the Washington Monument and raised over $750,000 for research, awareness, family services, and advocacy.

Bilal’s Interview With Director Mikaël Colombu

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
