Songfacts®:

  • The opening track of In It to Win It is a personal testament from Charlie Wilson, who has talked frankly over the years about overcoming a drug addiction that took him all the way down to being homeless. The song was released as the lead single from the project.

    "'I'm Blessed' says exactly where I am in my life, blessed to still be making music that people want to hear," said the former Gap Band frontman. "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."
  • The song features a guest verse by T.I. in which he shares how his journey is filled with God's blessings.
  • The song was Charlie Wilson's first entry on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart, and it climbed all the way to the top.
