I’ve used my bully pulpit on this site to complain about the endlessly delayed release of Charlie Wilson’s Uncle Charlie, so it only seems fair to mention that Jive finally put the album out, eight months after the commercial release of the spectacular T-Pain-assisted single “Supa Sexxy.” (It’s also been a year since that song leaked.) Amazingly, an album with a bankable urban star and a deluge of guest appearances actually seems to be selling; trade rag HITS is projecting that the former Gap Band singer’s solo effort will make next week’s top five, moving around 50,000 copies. If you’re looking for something grown and sexy, the disc has its moments, including “Let It Out” with Snoop Dogg and a track featuring Lil Wayne. Fan-made videos for “Let It Out” and the still quite enjoyable “Supa Sexxy” are below the cut.
Earlier this year, I posted the video for “Supa Sexxy”, former Gap Band singer Charlie Wilson’s collaboration with T-Pain. At the time, I wonderd why the track wasn’t more popular. Now, it’s eight months later and the album of the same title seems to be lost forever. But why?
