To create the Black Rose universe, Gibson gathered a group of 19 people, including producers, singers and song writers and brought them to Paradise Valley, Arizona  where they resided in a rented mansion  for 34 days to create 146 songs. They brought the album to fruition, containing 20 songs and featuring some special guests such as:  Jennifer Hudson, Tank, Chrisette Michele, The Game and many other surprise collaborations.  In the end, Tyrese Stated, ” It was the most life changing experience ever, because we bonded through laughter, eating and praying together.”

Currently, the first single “Dumb Shit “, which features Snoop Dog and Black Ty has been released although the fans will have to wait for the deluxe double album to release on July 7th, to pick up their copy.

One of the key statements that Tyrese expressed on the press call  about the album is that, ” I do believe that Black Rose is my best album. People will experience different feelings and I’ve never struggled to record an album before, the way I did with Black Rose and so it’s my most honest and vulnerable album.”

The next single that Tyrese will release is called “Shame”, directed by Paul Hunter,  which inspired his short musical film featuring himself and Jennifer Hudson. Gibson states, “This will be a side of both myself and Jennifer that you have never seen before. Taking place in 1968 and I will be playing a character that has the likeness of Ike Turner, Teddy Pendergrass and Marvin Gaye. You will see my character struggle with a cocaine and alcohol addiction , while being abusive to my wife, which Jennifer will be playing; you won’t want to miss this.”BAck_new_10

When asked what would be his last advice to his love circle, Tyrese left us with this:

“Forgive faster, hug longer, kiss slower and any issues and dysfunction that is happening in your life between loved one, that you believe they’re worth fixing , put those issues on table and pick them apart and fix the problem; because it is arrogant to believe that the next second of life belongs to you.”
