On Nas' latest album Nasir, I was wondering if the song Bonjour not featuring in the short film (also called Nasir) had to do with the rumoured copyright issue that delayed the release time or was just a production decision.

It is most probably because the song doesn't fit with the film.

The film is described as:

The images are mostly overtly dramatizations of the sociopolitical lyrics and themes in the songs, intercut with images of Nas rapping (often in church).

"Bonjour" is more of a boy and girl song which doesn't fit with the images in the film. The chorus (?) is:

Oui-oui amour
Plenty of kisses, plenty of bisous
Good day and best wishes
Comment allez-vous?

There's not a lot of social commentary in those lyrics.
