One of TGT's main goals surrounding their debut album, 3 Kings, is to bring R&B back to the mainstream forefront. Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank, who have all endured solo success, formed the super group because of their love for the genre and also to create lanes for new artists like their forefathers did for them. Check out all three stars talking about bettering R&B.
Tyrese: I look at Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Luther Vandross…I really wanna believe at some point they had a conversation [that] what we're doing right now is going to create an opportunity for other people to be able to do this and feed their families, tour the world…have their message heard through their gift of music. Me personally, If my motivation was money, I would never do music again in my life…I love this so much, and I have some tolerance in me that won't allow me to walk away from it. I'm really thinking about the future generations of singers, rappers, people that really have a message through the music…If I can be apart of steam rolling and having my success to create a lane or an opportunity for somebody else’s gift to be hear, I think that's what it is at this point…It's something much bigger for us.
Ginuwine: I want people to be able to look back and say 'those were the guys that made me take this serious.' Made me really hone in on my craft and really get serious about this thing…make sure whatever you're doing, you stay true to it. If people do that, the space would be filled.
Tank: We just want our space back. I want a rapper to need a singer to be mainstream. We love, we want relationships, we want sexy, we want class, we want all of that to be mainstream music. And that's what 3 Kings is about.
