Charlie Wilson has always known how to make great music. From his days in The Gap Band with hits like “You Dropped the Bomb On Me” and “Outstanding” to working with contemporary hit makers like Jamie Foxx, Fantasia, R. Kelly and Kanye West, to three gold and platinum albums in the last decade, Wilson has a proven track record. The just-turned-60-years-young performer has also apparently located the fountain of youth, despite prostate cancer and years of drug and alcohol abuse.

His latest release “Love Charlie,” released on January 29, Wilson’s actual birthday, follows the lead of his last CDs – it’s an ode to lasting love with most of the songs written with his wife of 18 years, Mahin Wilson. He credits her with helping him overcome the substance abuse problems that threatened to derail his career after The Gap Band.

Of this lastest CD, Wilson who is also known for his great live performances, he told, “Every song is about a woman. The love for women. It was like a letter and after I finished recording every song all I could say is ‘Love, Charlie’ I gave you all I had.”

    I absolutely love Charlie Wilson!!!! I am always anxiously waiting everytime he has an upcoming CD. And yes, I buy it on the first day it is released. I have every CD he has made!!! This time I was extremely excited to know that he was going back to what I think he should never stray away from….ballads. I love the new CD, it’s so “old school”, sexy, and grown up. Thank you Charlie!!! Don’t get me wrong, I like that you keep growing and can bring back soul by schooling the younger artists of today. But the “love song crooner Charlie Wilson” is what you do BEST. You inspire me to keep hope alive for love to come into my life especially after just recently ending a 4 year relationship. I’m so happy that you and your wife can put out such good stuff. Please keep inspiring us grown and sexy over 50 crowd. I remember back in my college days and my favorite all time jam called Outstanding. Thank you Charlie
