Born and raised in Philadelphia, Bilal has always been an individual who does things on his own terms. His early recordings were wholly modern and became increasingly creative which led to being dropped from a major label, and he went several years without releasing any solo material. In 1999, Grenique's Black Butterfly released on Motown, which was the first major album to feature Bilal's incredible vocals. His debut album "1st Born Second" dropped in 2001 and reached the Top Ten of Billboard's R&B albums chart. Throughout the years, Bilal has been a featured artist on songs by Beyoncé, Musiq, Clipse, Sa-Ra, Jay-Z, and many more. Bilal's new music promises to be "genre-bending" and progressive while still having its roots placed firmly in the jazz traditions that originally inspired him in his youth.
