Kool & The Gang has influenced music for three generations and performed continuously for the past 43 years, which is longer than any R&B group in history. Their bulletproof funk and jazzy arrangements has earned the band multiple awards and recognitions throughout their career.

In 2016, Kool & The Gang released the single, “Sexy (Where’d You Get Yours),” which rose to No. 15 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart. The song signifies a modernization of Kool & The Gang’s unmistakable sound, tailored bass grooves and perfectly timed horns. “Sexy (Where’d You Get Yours)” marked the band’s first airplay chart hit in a decade.
