Watch: Tyrese Confesses His Flaws in “Shame” Video (Co-Starring Jennifer Hudson)

Tyrese J-Hud Shame

Tyrese is ready to confess, and prior to sharing his anticipated “final” solo album (Black Rose) he has debuted the music video for his latest single “Shame” featuring Jennifer Hudson.

The video, which is more than six minutes long, is directed by Paul Hunter and produced by Denzel Washington. Opening with Tyrese in church confessing his sins to a minister, the entire video consists of flashbacks to his character (a 1960s musician) treating Hudson’s character (his wife) badly. He yells at her, cheats on her, and is absent from his family at home. The video ends in silence as Tyrese and Hudson stare at each other from across the stage.

With Black Rose (due out July 10) slated to be his last album, Tyrese held nothing back, and wanted to give his fans as much as possible.

“Black Rose is my most intimate album, it’s my most vulnerable album, and it’s my most honest album,” Tyrese told Billboard. “Most of the people that hear it compare it to Confessions by Usher, because when you’re just being honest saying, ‘Through my flaws and my shortcomings and relationships I lied, I cheated, I this and I that,’ whatever your story is or your scenarios, it goes back to blues. The reason why blues will be around forever is because people have to sing their most honest song or it just will be ineffective.”

RiRi wowed the cameras on the red carpet in a crimson satin dress by Zac Posen and stunning Chopard necklace. She was supported by her family, including both her parents and her grandfather Lionel Braithwaite.

Brad Pitt had the duty of introducing Rihanna’s special performance to the audience, which found her conducting an orchestra and performing a medley of some of her biggest hits including “Diamonds,” “Pour It Up,” “Umbrella,” and “Run This Town.”
