I recently Â hit up Tyrese’s private listening party. Tyrese has been in the studio Â for the pass few months working on his new album which is going to be, I think, one of the biggest R&B albums of the year. And to me, I think he’s going to feel that role for the for all the ladies that Trey Songz has been dominating for these last years. Quickly grabbing back all his females fans and letting them know he still has it.
During his private listening session, he talked about how when he put out his first album, he was only 16 and didn’t know anything about the music that he was singing. And how Usher, who came out at the same time, dominated the younger audience, while he dominated the older crowd. He wanted the younger crowd, but the record label took control of his career. It was a really interesting conversation and it made me look differently at Tyrese as an artist.
He then started playing the new album, Open Invitation. The album is really one of those albums that you can dance to at the club and then go home and have you some good nasty (if your an adult). I have to say I liked almost every song on the album and it’s definitely something worth buying and not downloading for free. He picked every song on his album, so you know its gonna be hot.
P.S. to all you Brandy Fans, there is a duet on the album which probably be the wedding song everybody uses for the next five years.
BTW – I think Tyrese has some of the wildest fans I’ve seen.
Tyrese just filmed his new video with Taraji P. Henson. Check it out: READ MORE

Surprisingly he was seen with Lindsay Lohan who we all know that he had a beef with because of his song with Pitbull where the rapper used her name. I guess they made up and all is well.
