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.
"Lean On" was originally sent by Major Lazer to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj's camps as a slower reggae track. After both parties rejected the tune, Major Lazer recruited Danish singer MØ to supply vocals and recorded it themselves.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
