Muze PNote As the lead singer for the Gap Band and the man behind such classics as "Steppin' Out" and "I Don't Believe You Wanna Get Up and Dance (Oops, Up Side Your Head)," Charlie Wilson has had as great an influence on the development of modern R&B as legends like George Clinton and Roger Troutman. Unlike those artists, Charlie Wilson is still capable of producing astonishingly vibrant and contemporary sounding records. UNCLE CHARLIE is every bit the worthy successor to 2005's career revitalizing FIRST NAME CHARLIE, LAST NAME WILSON. It features contributions from Babyface, T-Pain, Snoop Dogg, and a host of other estimable collaborators.

Professional Reviews

Billboard (p.33)
- "[F]or Gap Band fans, 'Thinking of You' brings back the group's familiar distorted rhythms and leaves lots of room for Wilson's gigantic pipes."


Charlie Wilson

Once dubbed "the de-facto father of new jack swing," artists like Aaron Hall and R. Kelly have long paid homage to Charlie Wilson's characteristic vocal style. Labelmate Kelly wrote and produced the hit single, "Charlie Last Name Wilson," from the gold-certified CD of the same name. From classic R&B Gap Band hits like "Yearning for Your Love" and "Outstanding" to collaborations with Justin Timberlake on "Signs" and Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams on the Grammy nominated track, "Beautiful," Wilson continues bracing contemporary music with his phenomenal vocal style and unique licks. "It is a true honor to be able to continue to work with today's hottest and biggest artists and as long as they still want me I am here," Wilson said of his career's longevity.

The first single off of his second solo album, Uncle Charlie, "There Goes My Baby" is a hauntingly beautiful song written by multiple Grammy winner Babyface and Calvin Richardson and produced by Gregg Pagani. "When they presented me with this song, I knew it was a winner," says Wilson. "I was in love with it." Bound to become a wedding song classic, "There Goes My Baby" describes a man who falls in love with a woman at first sight which randomly takes place one day while shopping at the mall. A perfect mixture of contemporary and classic R&B, the music fuses perfectly with Wilson's enchanting vocals.

Uncle Charlie includes promotional single "Supa Sexxy" featuring. T-Pain, a hyper as a heart-attack collaboration. Having worked with T-Pain on his last project in 2005, Wilson was more than ready to return to the studio with his dread-locked labelmate. "When we first worked together three years ago, T-Pain wasn't the household name that he is now," says Wilson. "It has been wonderful watching him mature and grow as an artist and a businessman." The single "Supa Sexxy" describes the strength of a woman when it comes to her man and how she can "swoop right down and pick him up" when he's down.

To perpetuate the success of "Supa Sexxy," Wilson decided to slow things down a bit and created a slow dance remix of the track with his good friend, Oscar winning actor and soul singer, Jamie Foxx. "Jamie and I have been trying to get together on a record for years" admits Wilson. Foxx's enthusiasm about joining Charlie on this track can be heard on his first verse in the song, "Charlie I know you're the greatest but you can't do this without me."
