R&B/Soul: Bilal – “Back To Love”

It’s funny how when music is so timeless that you don’t quite take notice of the years that by when enjoying good music. Every now & then I turn back to listen to Bilal’s 2010 album ‘Airtight’s Revenge’ on on my iphone/itunes with some frequency. It’s hard to believe he just dropped this new single “Back To Love” for his upcoming project because the previous album was good enough to hold most of us over. Look out for the Philly soul singer’s upcoming album “A Love Surreal” right before Valentines day dropping February 12th. If you haven’t copped The Retrospection mixtape he released that we posted earlier you can download it for free from the link below.

R&B/Soul: Joy Denalane feat. Bilal – “Should Have Never” (Jake One Remix)

I’ve been up on Germany’s Joy Denalane for a few years now, but new songs from her don’t pop up that often from the multilingual soul singer since the 2006 release of her “Born & Raised” project. It was her standout track “Change” featuring Lupe Fiasco that really caught my attention coincidentally after I had returned back to Atlanta from a trip visiting with friends in Germany.  Her solo appearances & collaborations are still rare releases but she still pops up every now & then on joints with fellow R&B artists like Dwele & Bilal as well as popping up on a few rap artists & producer based projects like on Virginia’s NOTTZ song “How Long Will It Last” from his “You Need This Music” album two years ago.   So with her relative absence in releasing any new material for a few years it was surprise to see OKP premier this new remix from Seattle based producer Jake One.  Joy Denalane is set to drop a brand new project on April 3rd entitled “Maureen” which apparently has a much deeper significance other than it just being her middle name. It’s makes even more sense considering the early reports that the album has a dark bluesy & soulful edge to it that is quite difficult to fully categorize.  Looking forward to some more goodness with this….We’ve waited long enough

R&B/Soul: Bilal – “Free” (Tall Black Guy Remix)

Detroit producer Tall Black Guy is back at it again with his very dope & soulful remixes. This time he reworks Philly soul singer Bilal’s “Free” joint that was originally produced by V.A. producer Nottz.  After you peep that dope TBG remix make sure you also check out a bonus acoustic version of Bilal’s “Think It Over” jawn too….



Kindred the Family Soul – ‘Take a Look Around’ feat. Bilal & BJ the Chicago Kid (Video)

New joint from Kindred the Family Soul from their project Love Has No Recession. Real Music for Real Life. Video shot in my beloved hometown of Philly…

Bilal – “Robots” (Tensei Remix) featuring Adad

There have been a few remixes I’ve heard to tracks off of Bilal’s ‘Airtight’s Revenge’ album that dropped almost a year ago. This one right here sounds just as dope as the original version to me yet totally different aurally speaking.  Nevertheless it’s dope to have a good remix to breathe new life into Bilal’s project for those people who may have slept.


Bilal feat. Common – ‘Sorrow, Tears, & Blood’ (Video)

The song itself appears on Bilal’s ‘Love For Sale’ Album

New Music: Bilal – ‘The Dollar’ (Black Milk Remix)
