The album reached 1 on the Black Albums chart and 16 on the Billboard Hot 200. The album yielded 3 charting singles: the 60 R&B song Humpin', Yearning for Your Love. The Gap Band was an American R&B and funk band that rose to fame during the 1970s and 1980s. The band consisted of three brothers Charlie, Ronnie, and Robert Wilson and it was named after streets Greenwood, Archer, and Pine in the historic Greenwood neighborhood in the brothers' hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. After 43 years together, they retired in 2010. The band received its first big break by being the back up band for fellow Oklahoman Leon Russell's Stop All That Jazz album released in 1974. When Gap Band III came out in 1980, the Wilson Brothers were widely regarded as true heavyweights in the funk field. Produced by Lonnie Simmons, this exceptional album boasts three of the Wilson Brothers' biggest radio hits: Burn Rubber on Me a funk classic, the Parliament-minded Humpin', and the quiet storm slow jam Yearning for Your Love.
