Charlie Wilson Reveals ‘In It To Win It’ Album Cover; Adds More Tour Dates


A month ago, R&B legend Charlie Wilson announced the release of his new studio album, In It To Win It, which is slated for release on February 17, 2017.

Today, the eleven-time Grammy nominee reveals the project’s cover art, which is an up close shot of the celebrated crooner.

‘In It To Win It’ is headed by the single “Blessed,” featuring rapper T.I. The album also features appearances from Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Robin Thicke, Lalah Hathaway and more.

“I am excited about my new single, ‘I’m Blessed,’ because it says exactly where I am in my life, blessed to still be making music that people want to hear,” Wilson previously shared. “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. Having T.I. add his flavor to the song and share who he is and how his journey is filled with blessings is an added bonus.”

The project will be supported by the ‘In It To Win It’ national arena tour which will kick off on February 8, 2017, in Norfolk, VA. Grammy-Award winner, Fantasia, and four time Grammy-Award nominee, Johnny Gill will join Uncle Charlie on the trek.
