Singer Willie Collins
sang smooth, soulful Southern flavored R&B/New York-recorded ballads with one, "Let's Get Started," charting number 43 R&B in Billboard during spring 1986. Hailing from North Carolina, Collins
moved to New York. His 1986 Capitol LP, Where You Gonna Be Tonight? was produced by Billy Nichols
. Besides "Let's Get Started" (which is in the vein of Freddie Jackson
's "Rock Me Tonight"), the album boasted the smooth lush title track co-written by Joylon Skinner, the loping, languid ballad "Restless," the lilting "Ain't No Woman."
