It’s been five years since R&B singer Tyrese emerged as his rap doppelganger, Black-Ty, and fumbled with his cringe-worthy double album Alter Ego. Back from his musical hiatus (he’s been busy acting, appearing in all three Transformers movies), Tyrese sticks to soul on Open Invitation, his fifth album and first from his EMI imprint, Voltron Recordz. Recorded in Tyrese’s California home studio in less than a month’s time, the bulk of the album was produced by Brandon Alexander, with Tyrese co-producing and writing on each track. While he made his name as a crooner with ballads like “Sweet Lady” and “Lately,” this album finds Tyrese spending more time in the club than the bedroom, although there’s still a fair share of late night seduction. “I Gotta Chick,” featuring R. Kelly and Rick Ross, is an up-tempo ode to a woman who will “do anything for me, that’s why I f**ks with her.” On “One Night” Tyrese’s search for a one night stand make his come-ons come off, perhaps befittingly, tipsy: “Have you drippin’ like water in the middle of a sauna/ last call, last call, last call for alcohol, meet me in valet…” Still partying on “Too Easy,” featuring Ludacris, Tyrese’s singing turns to bragging: “You can’t get what I get unless you got a passport because my swag is so international/ from Brazil all the way to Tokyo.”

While trite lyrics overpower his party tracks, Tyrese’s undeniably smooth, rich vocals shine on his slower grooves. The single “Stay” is a sweet love song, while “Nothing on You” is dedicated to a woman who trumps all the others. “Takeover” finds Tyrese saving the day for a wounded woman who just went through a breakup, and “I Miss That Girl” sounds like the kind of genuine regret sure to woo a woman back. On an interlude, Tyrese calls his “baby” and tells her he wants to “get into some vaginal activity.” She laughs, leading into the romantic ballad “Make Love,” on which Tyrese is in top form as he promises to find all of her secret places. In the vein of his motivational memoir How to Get Out of Your Own Way released last April, Tyrese closes the album with “Walk... (A Poem For My Fans).” A prayer that weaves into a poem, Tyrese asks for clarity, gives thanks, and offers insight: “You can often tell how far your life and career will go based on the five people that you spend the most time with.” He also admits that his marriage to God -- like his music -- is a work in progress.
