Is Bilal trying to convey a message with his updated perspective on the familiar photo? Or maybe he’s trying to bring back or revive messages in the music (or music in the message, take your pick)? Here is a confirmed track listing:
1. Cake & Eat It Too
2. Restart
3. All Matter
4. Flying
5. Levels
6. Little One
7. Move On
8. Robots
9. The Dollar
10. Who Are You
11. Think It Over

If the cover doesn’t move you, perhaps these videos of Q-Tip and Phonte Coleman will, as they were asked to share their views on Bilal.
