Charlie Wilson, the former lead singer of The GAP Band (“Outstanding,” “Party Train,” Yearnin’ For Your Love,” “Burn Rubber”) releases his eighth solo album Friday, February 17, entitled In It To Win It (RCA). It is a testament to his rarified longevity and greatness that his special guests range from Lalah Hathaway, Snoop Dogg and (with mild controversy) Robin Thicke to Pitbull, Wiz Khalifa and T.I. on songs that run the gamut stylistically from R&B, Club, Gospel and Pop. “Uncle Charlie” has also just embarked on a two month tour with Fantasia, Johnny Gill and a new duo named Solero that is part of his affiliated P Music Group production company.
In the chat that follows, The Urban Music Scene Music Editor A. Scott Galloway talks with Wilson about this sweet spot where he’s arrived in his enviable career.
