TGT Hits D.C. for ‘Three Kings’ Release and March on Washington

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — What happens when three R&B, top-charting artists get together? The revival of R&B happens.

Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank — now known as TGT — hit the studio with WPGC’s DJ Flexx to discuss their new album, “Three Kings”, Friday.

All R&B crooners in their own right, the men collaborated for five years on a 17-song album that they claim will save the R&B genre.

“R&B has lost its way, it’s lost its true foundation,” Tank says. “There’s no more real love associated to R&B.”

During the interview Tyrese explained in his excitement of the release, he’s barely slept.

“I’ve been up for what seems like three days, ” Tyrese said. “I’ve been so emotional and just excited about this album, it’s been five years in the making.”

His lack of sleep could explain his collapse during a performance at The Park nightclub, Friday night.

The trio also spoke to Flexx about the importance of Saturday’s March on Washington 50th Anniversary celebration.

“For him [Martin Luther King, Jr.] to have a vision and a dream beyond the reality of where he was and his exact circumstances, 50 years ago,” Tyrese said. “Says a whole lot about the power of foresight.”

TGT performed Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” at the Lincoln Memorial, Saturday.

“We didn’t have the opportunity to be a part of this 50 years ago, now’s our chance.”
