UNDISPUTED R&B SUPERGROUP TGT MAKE LONG AWAITED DEBUT AS âTHREE KINGSâ ARRIVES AT LAST


Atlantic recording group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank) has announced this weekâs release of their hugely anticipated debut album. âTHREE KINGSâ â which features the hit singles, âSex Never Felt Betterâ and âI Needâ â arrives today in stores and all digital retailers.
TGT recently heralded the albumâs release with this summerâs smash âThree Kings Tour,â a U.S. tour that included sold out headline dates and showstopping main stage performances at such events as New Yorkâs Groovin In The Park, Virginiaâs 46th annual Hampton Jazz Festival, and the 2013 Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.
âTHREE KINGSâ sees three of the most important male R&B artists of the modern era coming together to create something truly special. Friends for more than a decade, Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank have each had incredible success on their own, with all the multi-platinum certifications, GRAMMY® nominations, blockbuster films, and #1 hits that entails. The trio have now united in an undisputed heavyweight supergroup, masterfully bringing back their own sultry, smooth brand of real R&B.
âSex Never Felt Better,â the first single from âTHREE KINGS,â arrived earlier this year, with its companion video â directed by Matt Alonzo (Snoop Dogg, Odd Future, Chris Cornell) â earning âNew Joint of the Dayâ status on BETâs 106 & Park. The albumâs latest single/video, âI Need,â followed, the seductive trackâs companion video â directed by Benny Boom (Lil Wayne, B.o.B, Nicki Minaj) â joining âSex Never Felt Betterâ and a host of exclusive clips at TGTâs official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/TGTlife.
In addition, âTHREE KINGSâ finds Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank teaming with an array of studio stars, including The Underdogs (Chris Brown, Mary J. Blige), Lonny Bereal (Jamie Foxx, Pleasure P), Carvin & Ivan (Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild), and Tim & Bob (R. Kelly, Boyz II Men), as well as underground rapper, Problem, who guests on the standout track, âAinât No Fun.â
TGT first combined in 2007 for the now classic remix of Tankâs GRAMMY®-nominated #1 hit, âPlease Donât Go.â The trackâs success inspired the three artists to continue their partnership, though each proved so busy individually it took longer than anticipated to finally make it happen. The trio eventually teamed up for a series of songwriting sessions at Tyreseâs Los Angeles home before hitting the studio to record âTHREE KINGS.â

In addition, Gibson has earned acclaim for penning two New York Times best-sellers, How To Get Out of Your Own Way and Manology (co-written with Rev Run).

Ginuwine â born Elgin Baylor Lumpkin â was an R&B/hip-hop phenomenon from the moment his classic âGINUIWINEâ¦THE BACHELORâ arrived in 1996. The album â which marked the full-length production debut by the one and only Timbaland â was a 2x RIAA platinum certified smash, fueled in part by the indelible #1 single, âPonyâ (recently featured in the 2012 hit film, Magic Mike). The gifted vocalist followed with a string of RIAA certified albums and singles, including crossover favorites like âDifferencesâ and âSo Anxious.â As if that werenât enough, Ginuwine has also enjoyed a fruitful acting career, with well-regarded guest appearances in a wide array of film, TV, and theater projects.
