Love This Track received a special Listening invite to Tyrese’s Press Call Event. During the Press call, Tyrese speaks in detail about the “Black Rose” Universe he has created. Starting with the “Black Rose” album, he speaks about his first & current single “Dumb Shit” featuring Snoop Dogg. The story behind the song is when he was in a 5-year relationship with a good woman and got caught lying & cheating on her. We learned that “Black Rose” will be Tyrese’s last solo album, which we are sure his dedicated fans are saddened to hear this news. Due to the cost of running an Independent label & the recent 50/50 joint custody he received for his 7 year old daughter Shayla; which will require a lot of his time being a dedicated, hands on Father. He decides himself to making his last album heart-felt, and will continue to sing in the future. He is willing to work with TGT again if the opportunity comes around.
Tyrese is a very spiritual being who taps into God’s direction for his life and follows it. He receives his vision from God in which he calls “Emails”. God sent him an ‘email’ of how to put the “Black Rose” album together. He found a rental mansion in Paradise Valley, Arizona and rented a tour bus in LA; boarded 19 people & music equipment and went to Arizona for ‘R&B’ Bootcamp. Surrounded by Music Producers, Singers, & Songwriters, they recorded 146 songs in 34 days! During their time in Paradise Valley, they worked long nights, bump heads sometimes, prayed everyday, laughed & had the time of their life! They did this with no wives/husbands, girlfriends/boyfriends or family being there. They were there to focus on their craft and talents. For some of them, the experience even helped to save their lives from suicidal thoughts & save their careers. “It was the most life changing experience ever” Tyrese states.
The “Black Rose” album being released on 7.10.2015 will be a Double Album. One side will be R&B and the other will be a full Rap album by Tyrese’s Alter ego Black TY. There will be a total of 20 songs, 10 on each side, including interludes. Some of the features will include Chrisette Michele, Jennifer Hudson, The Game, Tank, Stevie Wonder (pending), & a secret Artist yet to be named. He mentions this is the most honest and uncomfortable album. He states you will experience a lot of different emotions with this album & reminds you why you fell in love with R&B. Tyrese states “Black Rose” is his best album!
Tyrese wanted to give his fans a lot of content especially with this being his last solo album so in addition to the album:
- He will be releasing a Documentary of the making of the “Black Rose” album.
- His third book “Black Rose”, which follows his New York Times Best- Sellers “How to Get Out of your own way”, and “Manology” with co-author Rev. Run. The book “Black Rose” will be his first ever audiobook with the instrumentals of the “Black Rose” album playing throughout the book. This book will be his most uncomfortable book. “Raw and heartfully truthful” – Tyrese states.
- Musical Short Film Movie, which will be 27 minutes long starring Jennifer Hudson called “Shame”. The short film was inspired by “Shame”, the second single from the “Black Rose” album. The short film, which will be where Tyrese’s part is similar to that of an Ike Turner playing a struggling soul singer strung out on drugs & abusive. The movie plays on the time of 1968, directed by legendary Paul Hunter. He states that it is the most uncomfortable movie that Jennifer Hudson & himself have ever done. Tyrese will be submitting this musical short film in the Cannes Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, & various other Film Festivals.
All of these projects will be released on 7.10.2015. Tyrese is also starting the #TheLoveCircle Foundation and also wanted people to know that Paul Walker was an angel and literally the nicest guy you would have ever met.
This “Black Rose” Universe will be a huge historical release by the Singer/Actor. Tyrese is a visionary, blessed by his God-given Talents, creative thoughts and ideas. Just the way he is using the power of social media to touch the lives of millions of people through his inspirational videos shows his character and compassion for others. We look forward to the ‘’Black Rose Universe” to be released to the world!
