If there’s one thing that’s better than great R&B, it’s old R&B artists at the end of their ropes. Think “JoJo at 1:50” and Dru Hill’s radio interview fight. Now entering the annals of sad performances is TGT — better known as Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank…or Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese or Tanqueray, Gin and TightlyRolledBlunts. Tank does his thing on the piano. Tyrese sings better than he tweets at least. And Ginuwine looks like he’s going to pass out at any minute.
Just watch at the 3:15 mark and Ginuwine clearly f*cks up his line and the camera switches to Tank laughing and you can hear Tyrese laugh too. But before then, Ginny From The Block struggled to fill in his ad-libs. Maybe he’s the R&B Samson and his powers were attached to his permed down sideburns.
“In Those Jeans” seems so, so long ago.
