TGT is a supergroup formed in 2007 that consists of successful R&B singers Tyrese, Ginuwine, and Tank. The three had been friends for over a decade, and Tyrese was best man at Ginuwine's wedding, but this represents their first collaboration.[1] Their first song is a remix of Tank's "Please Don't Go".[2] The trio also appears on Slim Thug's single "Let Me Grind".

In an interview, Tyrese said the group would be the "ultimate R&B fan experience. Me, Tank and Ginuwine been talking about this forever. The reason why this makes sense is that besides all of us being R&B singers, we're all good friends. Every time I see Tank, every time I see Ginuwine, we all had good energy regardless."[3]

The trio planned the Shirts Off Tour for late 2007,[1] with Avant as an opening act. As part of the tour, they planned to hold auditions for a fourth member of the group.[2][4] The tour faced delays, however, and was anticipated for early 2008.[5]

The group faced difficulties given that each member of the trio is signed to a different record label,[6] and on August 21, 2008 Ginuwine announced on his MySpace blog that due to label and legal issues they will not be able to release an official TGT album at the moment.

On September 22, 2012, Tyrese reveal on his Twitter page that the group has been officially signed to Atlantic Records. [7] They are currently working on their debut studio album, The album will be called 3 Kings and will be released August 20, 2013.
