    The Gap Band were three brothers from Tulsa, Oklahoma, who had a string of R&B hits in the early 80s. Ronnie, Robert and Charlie Wilson had been writing, touring and recording together since 1973, but it wasn't until 1979 when they eventually signed to Mercury Records that they found success. The Gap Band featured a No.4 R&B hit called "Shake", and The Gap Band II (actually their fourth album) included the memorable "I Don't Believe You Wanna Get Up and Dance (Oops Upside Your Head)". The single was a pop hit in the UK and Europe, and again reached No.4 in the US R&B chart.

    Further R&B hits followed: "Burn Rubber On Me (Why You Wanna Hurt Me)"; "Yearning For Your Love"; "Early In The Morning"; "You Dropped a Bomb on Me"; "Outstanding"; "Party Train"; and "Beep A Freak". Meanwhile, The Gap Band III, The Gap Band IV and Gap Band V: Jammin (which featured a guest appearance from Stevie Wonder) all sold over a million copies each.
