‘In It to Win It’ arrives Feb. 17; upcoming tour will feature special guests Fantasia and Johnny Gill.
Charlie Wilson’s next album, In It to Win It, will be released on Feb. 17, 2017. The set includes the singer’s new single, “I’m Blessed,” featuring T.I., but the rapper is just one of several guests -- Snoop Dogg and Lalah Hathaway among them -- who appear on the 11-time Grammy Award nominee’s seventh solo outing.
The mid-tempo track opens with a personal testament from Wilson, who has talked frankly over the years about overcoming a drug addiction that took him all the way down to being homeless.
"'I'm Blessed' says exactly where I am in my life, blessed to still be making music that people want to hear," says Wilson in a release announcing his latest project. "2016 has been a tough year for so many people around the world and I am proud to release a song that reminds us that we can all find some blessings in our lives."
