“Superman” was released Dec. 8, 2023, via P-Music Group. “This song is truly personal for me as it reflects on the love I have for my wife and the turning point that reshaped my entire life. After The Gap Band’s success, I struggled with homelessness and addiction,” shared Wilson. “I entered rehab, meeting my future wife, a counselor at the facility. She put the cape on my back and we’ve been rollin’ ever since (28 years). This song is also for all women, their strength, love and support is appreciated more than they know.”

“Superman,” which includes a songwriting credit from Ant Clemons, debuted at No. 27 on the Adult R&B Airplay chart during the week of Dec. 23. 

On Wilson’s 71st birthday (Jan. 21), he was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony was hosted by iconic producer Jimmy Jam, with guest speakers Babyface, Snoop Dogg and Michael Paran.
