Bootsy Collins’ influence on popular culture is inescapable. His SOUND and LOOK are literally stitched into the fabric of modern music, be it R&B, Funk, Rock, Hip-Hop or E.D.M. Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Flea, Daft Punk and Thundercat are all his disciples. Today, a whole new generation of music fans have embraced Bootsy’s legacy via Childish Gambino’ platinum hit “Red Bone”, a loving homage to Collin’s 70’s smash “I’d Rather be with You.”
The Power Of The One is his new album. Produced, written and arranged by Collins, The Power of the One began before the pandemic at Sweetwater Studios and was completed during lockdown at his own Bootzilla Studios in Cincinnati. “In these tragedies and in these storms is when the most beautiful messages can come out,” says Bootsy. “You also realize you can’t do everything on your own. We need each other. One Nation under the groove.”

Album Features: Christian McBride, Branford Marsalis, Larry Graham, Snoop Dogg, Victor Wooten, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, Emmaline, Dr. Cornel West, Béla Fleck, Steve Jordan, Uché, Ellis Hall, Bernard Purdie, and Brandon Taz.
