“Black Rose” is Tyrese’s first album to date to land at number one on the chart.
Tyrese went to Instagram to express his gratitude. “We’re celebrating!!! That moment when you bow your head and lift up your hands and say THANK YOU FATHER GOD for these gifts and opportunities I will NEVER take my access for granted!! God is the greatest!!!! I’m so grateful… So grateful!! The album that saved R&B….. Whatever the first week of sales are, doesn’t matter…. Every interview, every radio spin, every PD and on air personality shouting out my #Shamesingle and #BlackRose, all of the social media fun we’ve had and more importantly every fan and supporter…. Even if you couldn’t buy the album I love you and I’m smiling ANYWAY… You guys should be very very proud… WE made a statement…. WE took a pure R&B album to #1 in 15 countries and #1on the TOP 200 and #1 on the R&B Billboard charts!!!! My single #SHAME is #2 on Billboard Urban Ac ( We HAVE to get this song to #1 on ALL radio formats ),” he wrote.
“Black Rose” features appearances from Snoop Dogg, Brandy Tank and Chrisette Michele.
