Willie Collins (born in North Carolina) was an R&B singer from the late ’80s. He moved from North Carolina to New York to pursue his music career. In 1972, he released his debut single “Two Lives\I Want Some Satisfaction” on the Geneva Records N.Y.C. label. It’s unknown how much impact the single made.
In 1983, Willie released his second single “She’s Hot” on Skyride Records. Like his debut single, it’s unknown how or if the single made the charts at all.
By 1986, Willie had signed to Capitol Records where he released his debut album “Where You Gonna Be Tonight” where it peaked at #59 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Albums chart. The lead single from the album “Let’s Get Started” peaked at #43 on Billboard’s Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 13 weeks. The title song managed to peak at #46 on the U.K. Singles chart. After that, it seems as if Willie has faded into obscurity. It’s unknown what he’s up to these days.
