Way back in February of ‘08, Tyrese stepped into the Booth with Coming to See You—a single intended to finally get the R&B vet’s fourth LP off the back burner and on track for release. Three years, four months and 825 days later with the project nowhere to be found, you’d think the artist would be utterly exasperated with the game but, on the contrary, his latest effort finds him sounding as smooth and unruffled as ever. His secret? As he reveals on this new “leak for the streets,” “I Gotta Chick That Love Me.” With the slow-rolling, bell-accented grooves of Brandon Alexander sizzling in the background, the L.A. native celebrates the power of a good woman to ease life’s stresses, waxing poetic about a shawty who’s got him “...open like a f*ckin’ bag of chips.” Young Money repper Tyga assists, expressing his devotion to his own girl (and enjoying some delicious Italian cuisine) on the back, and the one and only R. Kelly tops the cut off with his inimitable hook vocals. Now that Tyrese is back, are you hungry for more? Stay tuned—Open Invitation isn’t set to drop till 11/1/11, but the singer’s preparing to drop two singles (Stay and the Luda-assisted Too Easy) in the near future.
