When R&B artists Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank combined forces for TGT, a new R&B supergroup, it was a shot of musical TNT that R&B needed. While each has had individual hits, the trio is counting on their combined starpower to bring old-school aR&B, currently suffering from a loss of prominence among musical genres, back to the forefront. Now signed to Atlantic Records, Their single “Sex Never Felt Better” is out now and their self-titled debut CD is due in July.
On the “Tom Joyner Morning Show” performing live in the Red Velvet Cake Studio this morning, the group said that their tour would start in late June.
“We were actually talking about opening acts and things like that,” Tank, born Durrell, says. “We really want to make it very, very R&B. We were talking about grabbing some of the young up and coming R&B acts and really helping pave the way for that new generation of R&B.”
“it’s going to be a real night of R&B music,” said Tyrese. “All three of us go out and do our individual hit records, we all share the same band, then we come out and do our records as TGT.”
“We agreed on a rotating lineup,” says Tank. “But the closer we get to Fast 6, somebody just does not want to open or go second. I’m not saying who, I’m just saying I’m not in “Fast 6” and Ginuwine’s not in “Fast 6.”
