When three R&B heavyweights Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank came together in 2007 and announced they were forming a group called TGT, fans were excited. Male R&B groups were quickly losing ground on the music landscape, so the coming-together of three of the most respected in the game led to high expectations. The group released a remix of Tank’s “Please Don’t Go,” but the project came to a screeching halt when it was reported that disputes over contracts prevented the group from going forward. But Tyrese recently announced on Twitter that the guys are back on track and preparing to try again, saying:
“BREAKING:… It’s not a rumor:. _TgT_ is in the studio this WHOLE WEEK to start our new album as a group! @Tyrese @Ginuwine & @TheRealTank,” Tyrese Tweeted.
Tyrese has his successful independent “Open Invitation” album, Tank just released his “This is How I Feel Album”, and Ginuwine released “Elgin” in 2011. Tyrese goes on the explain what fans can expect from these three soul-singers:
“_TgT_ will pick up where #Jodeci left off … We got it from here … #ShirtsOffTour coming soon… @Ginuwine @Tyrese @TheRealTank #Pow!!”
If the project turns out to be an extension of Jodeci and achieves the respect and influence as such, it will be great for those who feel the R&B genre is suffering. This is definitely something to look out for.
