NEW YORK, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On the eve of the one-year anniversary of Tyrese's critically acclaimed disc Open Invitation comes the new hit single "Best Of Me," from one of R&B music's sensational masterminds. "Best of Me," co-penned by Tyrese and team, and produced by Brandon "Bam" Alexander, showcases Tyrese's incredible heartfelt vocals and his commitment to the genre of R&B. There are very few artists who wear as many hats and are as successful at their craft as Tyrese Gibson: an accomplished actor, critically acclaimed author, and multi-Grammy nominated and multi-platinum recording artist. These are just a few of the honors bestowed upon the hybrid superstar.
Open Invitation features the smash hit single "Stay" which topped the charts for 11 consecutive weeks on Billboard's Urban AC chart and remained on the Urban Mainstream chart for more than 52 consecutive weeks -- a tour de force in today's musical marketplace. Rounding out the critically acclaimed disc is "Nothing On You," "I Gotta Chick" (ft. R. Kelly), and "Too Easy" which feat Gibson's theatrical co-star Chris "Ludacris" Bridges. Even more exciting will be the debut of the "Best Of Me" video clip, featuring the star of the Oxygen serial LA Girlfriend Confidential, Eva Marcille. The clip was lensed by Matt Alanzo, and is without a doubt the true definition of Tyrese Gibson's artistry. "Best of Me" will debut on Centric (check local listings for details) and may be seen on related outlets thereafter including BET, MTV, VH1, Fuse and Vevo.
2011 has been an exceptional year for Gibson. Starring in two of Hollywood's biggest franchise films, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon and Fast Five collectively grossing more than $1.7 billion worldwide Gibson found time to pen his first New York Times Bestseller, How To Get Out Of Your Own Way (Hachette), as well as record Open Invitation, his fifth successful studio album release through his own independent imprint label, Voltron Recordz, which is currently distributed through EMI Label Services.
In 2013, Tyrese will release his second literary effort, Manology which he co-penned with pop icon and hip-hop architect Rev Run, best known as Run of the groundbreaking duo Run-DMC. Manology (Simon & Schuster) will be available at retailers worldwide on February 5, 2013. In addition, Tyrese Gibson returns to the silver screen this spring, reprising his starring role as Roman Pearce in the blockbuster franchise Fast and Furious 6, which will open nationwide on May 24th.
