Official Biography (courtesy of TyreseOnline.com)
The story of Tyrese begins more than 15 years ago with the release of his debut single “Nobody Else,” a mid-tempo driven track which quickly rose on the Billboard Hot 100 chart from the his self-titled album Tyrese. Debuting in the top twenty and featuring the R&B classic “Lately”, Tyrese was a solid commercial and critical success. However, the album’s third single “Sweet Lady” solidified Tyrese as a musical force. Tyrese’s sophomore release, 2000 Watts delivered the hit single “I Like Them Girls” and proved once again Tyrese was here to stay. To add fuel to the fire, his third studio album I Wanna Go There featuring the smash single “How You Gonna Act Like That” sky rocketed Tyrese from R&B sensation to R&B superstar.
In 2011 Tyrese released his first studio album in five years titled Open Invitation, a musical tour de force featuring the hit singles “Best of Me”, “Nothing on You”, and the smash hit single “Stay” which remained a number #1 single for 11 consecutive weeks on the Billboards UAC chart. Open Invitation earned Tyrese a Soul Train Award for Best R&B Song, “Stay”, and a Grammy Nomination for Best R&B Album reigning Tyrese as a fierce artist to be reckoned with.
Tyrese continues with his brand of soul throughout the entertainment industry. Along with his two best buds, Tyrese took time to tour the nation with Grammy nominated super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank), selling out theaters in both the U.S. and abroad.
