In town for tonight's TGT Tour stop in Chicago, Tyrese and Tank (sans Ginuwine) made their way to the studio last night to link up with another R&B veteran who needs no introudction: R. Kelly. Tyrese teases the collab may be added to the already complete 3 Kings album. We'll wait and see, but for you fellow 90s R&B fans out there, wherever this ends up, this should be good.
BUMP: Be sure to check out our newest exclusive video — TGT out in L.A.! With an abnormally busy weekend of content kickstarted by #YeezySeason, we want to make sure this didn't get lost in the shuffle!

It's been a big couple of days for TGT as the R&B supergroup consisting of Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tankas they just released their new video for "Sex Ain't Never Felt Better" and took over 106 & Park today with the premiere. Plus, they'll be coming to a city near you this summer on the "3 Kings Tour" when their debut album drops (dates here).
Our Gowhere L.A. team was on site during the filming of the music video and talked with the trio on the set above. The video spotlights some raw behind the scenes footage of the making of the video, while Tyrese leads the way in describing the "art imitates life" concept for the music video. "We look at R&B music as a form of escapism," adds Tyrese.
I'd like to add that I resonate with these concepts and what Tyrese was saying in this interview. In general, it's great to hear these three come together for a classic, contemporary R&B record like "Sex Never Felt Better" and surely more good music like this to come.
Lastly, also tune in for the fun story about how the song itself was created. Tank shares the details of how Tyrese came up with the hook and it's a never-before-heard look into the creative process, which is always cool to find out about. And oh yeah, this time next week... they mention it... and I'll be there... Fast 6 in theatres!
Shoutout to Terrence Jones & Hona Costello on the making of this video out in L.A. After watching above, go ahead and watch the final product INCYMI below!
Last night, the Soul Train Awards aired on BET and performances came from the likes of John Legend, 2 Chainz, Miguel, Ne-Yo, Keyshia Cole, TGT, and Elle Varner. You can watch and/or re-live the performances above and below as G.O.O.D. Music kicks it off with Legend's "Tonight (Best I Ever Had)" and then 2 Chainz right under with "Birthday Song", "I'm Different", and "Ghetto Dreams". Then there's Miguel with "Adorn", Ne-Yo "Let Me Love You", Keyshia Cole "Trust & Believe" and "Enough Of No Love", TGT (Tank, Ginuwine, & Tyrese) with "Stay", "If You're Lonely", and "Zoom", and finally, Elle Varner with "Refill". Enjoy!
Good news for R&B fans as Tyrese announced on Twitter that he, Ginuwine, and Tank - together known as... let me finish *Gob voice*... TGT - are inked to Atlantic Records. That makes the bet a little bit safer that we'll see an album from these three.
