TGT was an R&B supergroup consisting of Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank that was the biggest act in the genre in 2013 behind the success of their debut album, “Three Kings,” on Atlantic Records. However, due to disagreements between the singers and the record label, the group disbanded in 2015 while fans patiently awaited a second album. Eight years later, Tyrese, the latest guest on iHeartMedia’s R&B Money Podcast hosted by Tank and J. Valentine, revealed that Atlantic Records has agreed to create a second TGT album.
“I got some great news for you, Tank and J,” Tyrese reveals at the 25:00 minute mark of episode 44, part one. “Atlantic Records has officially agreed to sign TGT for a second album… yeah, congratulations.”
Tank would not deliver a concrete answer when asked about a proposed second TGT album, as the two hosts believed it was a topic not up for discussion without Ginuwine present. However, following the announcement, Tyrese, Tank, and J would continue a two-part interview that discussed Tyrese’s rise in music, relationships, acting, favorite R&B singers and songs, Usher, Brandy, and so much more. “I don’t sing backgrounds,” Tyrese says when discussing “Sweet Lady.”
