Video: Tyrese feat. Snoop Dogg – Dumb Sh*t


Tyrese is gearing up to take over 2015. With another blockbuster movie (Furious 7) hitting theaters on April 3, the singer/actor/author is poised to dedicate the rest of the year to his forthcoming album Black Rose, which he has continuously claimed will be his last solo effort.

Leaking the song late last year, the multi-talented entertainer has finally premiered the official music video for the first single off the project, “Dumb Sh*t” featuring Snoop Dogg.

In the black-and-white visual, directed by his frequent collaborator Matt Alonzo, Tyrese gets cozy with a number of females before Snoop adds his signature flare to the smooth R&B jam. Wiz Khalifa and Kevin McCall also make cameos.

“Matt Alonzo and I had a ball making it. It’s spring and as we warm up, I wanted to drop this dumb shit to get some energy going. This song ain’t for saints, it’s for real people who have made mistakes in relationships and did some dumb shit,” says Tyrese.

The single is currently available for purchase on iTunes, while the album will be released on July 7.

New Music: Tyrese feat. Snoop Dogg – Dumb Sh*t


We all make mistakes!

While he has been working on his next studio album Black Rose for a while, Tyrese surprises us today with the first release off the upcoming double album.

Over a extremely smooth ’90s inspired track, the Hollywood star glides over the funky beat with his classic vocals and gets personal about some past relationship mistakes. The singer/actor admits to making bad decisions in his romances, but really wants to be exclusive with his No. 1.

“Why would I want to start over when I got you at home / Tryin to get a million girls I’m just gonna end up alone,” he sings.

Tyrese calls on his big homie Snoop Dogg to lay down a slick verse, and he even brings out his rap alter-ego Black Ty for an additional verse.

His six album, Black Rose, is slated to hit stores next year, and he has claimed it will be his last solo album.

Take a listen to Tyrese’s brand new single below!
