Chris Brown Tyrese Back To Sleep Remix

And it don’t stop!

This past spring, Chris Brown surprised fans everywhere by releasing 3 all-star remixes to his hit single “Back To Sleep.” However, there was one person who seemed to be curiously missing, after it was announced that he would appear on one of them.  That person was the Vision Implementor himself, Tyrese.

Well, the multi-talented singer/actor has now surprised us early Friday morning (July 15), with a mega remix featuring himself, along with the previously released verses by R. Kelly, Usher, and Tank.

Titled, “Secret Garden Remix,” Tyrese comes in strong with a provocative verse, singing, “Sh*t’s so hard I had to do a remix / Girl you got my sh*t so hard, p**sy got me in my feelings.”  Continuing, “You gon’ get this chocolate / Capricorn in this bed / Girl I don’t really do a lot of talkin’, but watch me back up every word that I said.”

Welp, ok. I know many of you are just getting your day started, but Tyrese, Chris, Kellz, Usher, and Tank have plans for you to stay in bed this Friday morning.

Tyrese Defends The Importance of R&B, Talks Staying True To The Music


We all witnessed the success of Tyrese‘s grassroots campaign for his last album Black Rose, and how his persistence to stress the importance of celebrating classic R&B music was key to the movement.

Continuing to be one of the largest voices in the fight to have mainstream media support the music, the singer has sat down with ESSENCE for a new interview, which also acts as promo for his upcoming performance at the ESSENCE Music Festival this coming July 4th weekend.

During the interview, Tyrese talked about his favorite artists, and explained how it’s up to a select group of singers to spread the magic of true soul music.

“We are here to hold it down, it’s like defenders of the earth, we’re here to defend the culture, and just re-spark the interest in true R&B Soul,” he says.

Additionally, Tyrese serenaded the cameras with a love letter to R&B, getting all in his feels.

Watch: Tyrese Premieres ‘The Black Book’ Short Film co-starring V. Bozeman & Tank


Happy Easter, from Tyrese!

The multi-talented entertainer has premiered his anticipated mini-movie, ‘The Black Book,’ co-starring singers V. Bozeman and Tank. The music video short film tells a story of lust, struggle, infidelity and lasting love, set to “You Can’t Break Me,” as well as “Waiting On You” and “Prior To You,” off Tyrese’s 2015 album Black Rose.

Making his directorial debut, and inspired by the modern romance classic The Notebook, Ty borrowed elements from the film to create his own compelling story of true love. Much like the Nicholas Sparks tale, this film features an elderly couple, who are celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary. Due to his wife’s Alzheimer’s, an older version of Ty tries threading this story together, going down a sometimes painful memory lane, one filled with arguments, forgiveness and love.

As he tells the story, fans see it unfold on-screen in the form of the aforementioned musical numbers.

List: The Best of February – Top 12 Records


It’s incredible to think that February 2016 has all of the capability to be labeled as the best month of the year, and we’re nowhere near done! From Beyoncé commanding all the ladies into “Formation” to Tweet and Missy Elliott’s re-connection on “Somebody Else Will,” the year’s shortest month (even on a leap year) supplied some really good music.

In addition to the music supplied, February brought along one of the most memorable Black History Month’s in recent years. With notable Grammy performances, Oscar snubs, and apparent riots against those standing up for the culture, this Black History Month was absolutely a little more “lit” than usual and our appreciation for it was the same.

With all of that in mind and brought forth to your immediate memory, get into our “Best of February – Top 12 Records” list below!

John Legend, Tyrese, Demi Lovato & More Honor Lionel Richie at Grammys


After his honor as 2016’s MusiCares Person of the Year on Saturday, the tribute to legendary artist Lionel Richie continued on Monday (Feb. 15) at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.

John Legend started the tribute at the piano with a soulful version of “Easy.” Demi Lovato then took the stage for a potent vocal performance of the icon’s “Hello.”

From his seat, Richie looked on with a smile and watery eyes. Soon, Demi passed the mic to Luke Bryan for “Penny Lover” and Meghan Trainor for “You Are.” The tempo picked up some more for Tyrese’s take on The Commodores’ lively “Brick House.”

But the spotlight was truly on Richie here, so the celebrated singer took the stage to close things out with “All Night Long.”
