Neo-Soul singer Bilal’s video for “Satellites” marks the artist’s most politically charged video to date. Doning a full mystic man beard, Bilal plays a variety of mystic characters playing a positive role in the lives of strangers. The video, directed by Hans Elder, brilliantly uses color and light to tell Bilal’s story of struggle. The selfless wandering mystic character in the video is then confronted by two police officers transitioning the world of the video to a wolf headed figure dancing, wielding a spear.
“Satellites” is the first single from Bilal’s upcoming project, In Another Life.
