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.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
