TGT 'Three Kings' realistic kings of R&B

TGT's "Three Kings" CD


Like a lot of other people (that have queried them during interviews), initially it seemed random that Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese decided to form a group. However, after listening to two hilarious interviews (Interview 1 and Interview 2) on Hot 97 and an interview on Sway in the Morning with Sirius Radio, it turns out they've been good friends for years. Initially I listened to "Three Kings" the first time and wasn't into it. But that didn't make sense considering I like and own at least one or more of their individual projects.

But the online listening party was worth giving it another shot.

Best songs:

"Sex Never Felt Better"
"Lessons in Love"

OK songs:

"Take It Wrong"
"Weekend Love" (If it takes a calendar date for it to be better, you're not doing it right.)
"OMG" (Trey Songz's "LOL Smiley face" and the "OMG" concept comes to mind, but this is a much sexier version of it.)
"Running Back"
"Burn Out"
"Tearing It Down"
"Our House"

No desire to hear these again:

"No Fun": Why listen to a song basically telling women to have sex with the whole crew?
"Next Time Around": What is the purpose in singing about how he'll be a better man for the next relationship? That does nothing to benefit the current relationship.
"Interlude": The Spanish intro is terribly overused and is about as corny as fake orgasm noises.
"I Need": The song is a bit too whiny, but Ginuwine's aggressive part at the end is cool. Another problem is the video. Tank is in a cabin on fire and he's drinking like he doesn't realize it. Ginuwine is singing a song with his back to the girl he's singing it to and on a motorcycle for no reason. And the way he got off of it was awkward. However, Tyrese's part made sense.
