Charlie Wilson Career


Charlie and his brother, Robert and Ronnie, helped define and popularize an upbeat style of funk music that was infectious and enduring with their group the Gap Band from the start of his career. The Gap Band's debut album, Magicians Holiday, was released in 1974 on Shelter Records, which was founded by Leon Russell and Denny Cordell. The band recorded at The Church Studio, a historic recording studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Among the company's extensive catalog and some of the best sampled songs in music history are "Outstanding," "Party Train," "You're a Bomb on Me," "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," "You Dropped a Bomb on Me," and "Oops Upside Your Head." The Gap Band announced their disbanding in 2010.

According to Wilson's website, rapper Snoop Dogg (with whom he is good friends) nicknamed him "Uncle Charlie." In April 2008, Snoop and his partner, Shante, renewed their vows at Wilson's 20 acre ranch outside of Los Angeles, California. Wilson's hit "There Goes My Baby" featured Snoop and his wife and was given to them as a token of their union.

Michael Paran encouraged Wilson to embark on a solo career a few years ago. Wilson has been the CEO of P Music Group since 1997, and he has been responsible for rebranding the GAP Band and repositioning them as one of the best R&B touring companies in the United States.

Wilson and Wilson also released Bridging the Gap, Wilson's first solo album, which earned them Wilson's first No. 1st. "Without You," Billboard's Urban Adult Contemporary single. Paran was able to broker a multi-album contract for Wilson with Jive Records in 2004. Charlie, Last Name Wilson's first album from the partnership, debuted in 2005 with music from many hit-making artists, including R. Kelly, Justin Timberlake,, Kay Gee, and the Platinum Brothers. "Charlie, Last Name Wilson," the album, which had been issued gold by the R.I.A., was released.

Wilson has consistently topped the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary chart with singles from his follow-up albums through P Music/Jive Records. Uncle Charlie, Charlie's 2009 album, debuted at No. 1 on the charts. Billboard Hot 200 and No. 2 are the two most popular Billboard Hot 200 and No. 1. "There Goes My Baby" debuted on Billboard's Billboard R&B/Hip Hop chart, earning two Grammy nominations in 2010: Best R&B Album and Best R&B Vocal Performance, Male.

Just Charlie was released in December 2010 and gave rise to the hit single "You Are" which remained No. 1 in the No. ten. On the Billboard Urban Adult Contemporary chart for 13 weeks as well as 15 weeks in a row on the Mediabase chart. Wilson, his wife Mahin, and their fellow songwriters Dennis Bettis, Carl M. Days, Jr., and Wirlie Morris (who co-produced the song with Wilson) received two Grammy awards in 2012, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song, respectively, earning Wilson's first nomination as songwriters together.

Wilson performed on Roger & Zapp's hit "Computer Love," a hit in 1986 despite Wilson's initial resistance. Troutman and Wilson were discussing the possibility of a music video for the song. Unfortunately, this did not come to fruition due to resistance from Wilson's name at the time. Both singers' participation in the resistance was a factor. However, the two people forged a close friendship and performed the song together on stage.

Wilson appeared on Eurythmics' album We Too Many Others in 1989, providing back-up vocals on several tracks and co-writing the hit song "Revival." Wilson appeared on the British television chat show Wogan in August 1989. Wilson has worked as a vocalist and collaborator/collaborator on scores of songs in the hip hop, rap, and R&B styles. Wilson appeared on The Biggie Duets alongside R. Kelly on the song "Mi Casa." He has worked with Snoop Dogg on a variety of projects. Wilson appeared on four songs, "Doggfather," "Snoop Bounce," "Tha Dogg Pound"), and "Snoop's Upside Ya Head" on his first collaboration. Wilson appeared on 2Pac and the Dogg Pound on an unreleased track "Just Watching" (1996), as well as "Wanted Dead Or Alive," which featured him on the hook and Snoop rapping. He appeared on the Grammy award-nominated single "Beautiful" (together with Pharrell) from Snoop's 2002 album Paid tha Cost to Be Boss, and he was also on the soundtrack "Beca Boss." Wilson appeared on "Signs" (with Justin Timberlake) and "Perfect," two of Snoop's 2004 album R&G (Rhythm & Gangsta). On the songs "SD is Out" and "Can't Say Goodbye," he appeared live with Snoop and Wilson at the 2008 American Idol Gives Back charity concert.

Wilson appeared on Mystikal's Ghetto Fabulous album in 1998.

Wilson appeared in two songs on UGK's Underground Kingz album: "Quit Hatin' the South" and "How Long Can It Last" in 2007.

Wilson appeared on Kanye West's album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, in 2010. Wilson performed over a dozen songs with Kanye West; "All of the Lights" with Kanye West; "Want to Dance" with Rihanna; and "Monster" with Kanye West starring Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross.

Wilson was invited by Bruno Mars in 2018 to join him on the final leg of his 24K Magic Tour. Mars also wrote, co-wrote, and sang background vocals on Wilson's "Forever Valentine" album, which was released in 2020. On Billboard's Adult R&B Chart, the album debuted at number one.

Wilson appeared on "Roots" with Amine and JID in 2020, as well as Nas' "Car #85" from his Grammy Award-winning album, "King's Disease." He appeared on the song "I'll Take You On" with Brockhampton in 2021.

Wilson appeared on ABC Television Special "America United: Supporting Our Troops," which was taped at Camp Pendleton, California, in 2008.

Wilson has made it his personal mission to help American troops, particularly in the Middle East. He and his band have visited Kuwait and Iraq four times (2009, 2010 and twice in 2011), bringing his critically acclaimed, high-energy show to hundreds of bases in both countries and giving American military members a "little glimpse of home." Wilson's trip in November 2011 was in response to a special request from the US Armed Forces for Wilson to return to the Middle East and perform at five bases in Kuwait for the thousands of troops stationed there.
