SHORT FILM: Bilal "West Side Girl"

Written by on March 26, 2013

Bilal has just released a short film rather than your typical music video for his track “West Side Girl”. Clocking in at over 11 minutes, the film opens with Bilal and his “co-worker” having a hypothetical discussion over who they’d make a move for if they were a post-divorce Obama. The narrative, following the soul singer as a security guard driving around his bosses mistress, unfolds along portions of the track.

We’ll let you decide what you think of the film but there’s no question that the track is tight and it’s refreshing to see artists doing something a little more creative with their music videos.

Here at Base HQ it’s just getting us more hyped for Bilal’s upcoming Auckland show, just announced last week. He’ll be here in Auckland for the first time ever, Thursday May 2nd at the Powerstation. More details about that can’t-miss-it show and where to get tickets over here.
