Soul and R&B legend Charlie Wilson has released a new song inspired by his wife of 28 years.

Wilson’s powerful new song called “Superman” is his first solo project in several years. The most recent song that featured his soulful vocals was 2022’s “Yamz” by Masego.

According to a press release, “Superman” manifested from a deeply personal turning point in his life. The song talks about being at the lowest point in his life while attending a drug rehab center, and meeting his wife, Mahin, who was a counselor at the facility. Meeting Mahin changed his life forever, as her love and support would help turn his life around, transforming him into “Superman.”

The press release explains, “When he was at his lowest, the love and support of his future wife transformed him into Superman, allowing him to fight his demons, get clean and sober, and return to his career faster than a speeding bullet.” Charlie has remained sober and married to Mahin for the last 28 years.

In the lyrics, he sings, “Put my cape/ On my back when it felt unattached/ When I was at my ‘Lois’/ You saw superman/ It’s a bird it’s a plane/ Call me your superman.”
