Womack’s solo career evolved with hits such as _(song-title)Woman’s Gotta Have It_, _(song-title)Lookin’ For a Love_, and the title theme for the film _(song-title)Across 110th Street_, peaking with early 80s albums _(album-title)The Poet_ and _(album-title)The Poet II_, and more hits like _(song-title)If You Think You’re Lonely Now_. One of soul music’s all-time greatest ever since, Bobby’s amazing mission took a new step in 2010 with a star performance on the _(artist-name)Gorillaz_’ _(song-title)Stylo_ alongside _(artist-name)Mos Def_. Not just a poet, but also a true soul survivor!
