New Song: Tyrese – ‘The Rest Of Our Lives (Ft Brandy)’

Published: Friday 30th Sep 2011 by David

Get familiar with ‘The Rest Of Our Lives’, the latest recording by  one time rumored lovers Tyrese and Brandy Norwood.

Lifted from Tyrese’s upcoming album, ‘Open Invitation‘ , which is due out on November 1st, the ballad sees the pair engage in some marital role playing .


Listen below…

Sure to strike a chord with those in search of what has now been labelled ‘Real R&B’, ‘The Rest Of Our Lives’ is just the kind of song Ms. Norwood needs for her own upcoming project.

With vocals that compliment each other, this does indeed make for pleasant listening- seeing as male/female duets between vocalists as gifted as these two have become an unfortunate rarity.

Let’s hope Brandy is cooking up some album material similar to this, for with classic R&B seeming to slowly make its way back into the mainstream ( see Beyonce‘s ‘4’ and Jennifer Hudson‘s ‘I Remember Me‘) songs like this may just be what she needs to revamp a career many have written off too many times before.

    OMG, YAS! This is what I’ve been waiting on. 😀

  8. bey’knight September 30, 2011

    recording a quality RnB track doesnt mean its coming back, there’s always been out there scattered about, its about gettin them back on top of the charts where they belong, its annoying that only 1 subgenre of music makes it no1 these days even if the recording artist is a quack ie Pitbull,

    as for this track, i think its good not great

  9. BRANDYALLDAWAY September 30, 2011

    Beyonceitis is the destruction of your career by the overall power of Beyonce Knowles. Beyonceitis is a serious disease that has destroyed the careers of several artists although a few have been able to have successful careers in spite of it. Beyonceitis is also used to describe the overall domination of popular culture by Beyonce Knowles. Beyonceitis is most severe on artists who attempt to release albums around the same time as Beyonce or perform on the same award shows as Beyonce. Doing so has resulted in the embarrassment of several female artists. Some describe it as Beyonce being overexposed, or as Beyonce having a monopoly on the music game, but truthfully if you are a good enough performer you would shine regardless of who else you are in competition with.

    Beyonceitis is a problem that embarrasses a lot of people. No one wants to admit that one person has caused so much destruction. No one wants to admit that one person has b****-slapped (with her ring hand) the entire music industry. If you suffer from Beyonceitis do not worry. Do not feel ashamed. Beyonce shits on a lot of people. You are not alone. There is help. There is hope.

    History of Beyonceitis

    If one looks in the history of female entertainers they’ve either fallen into one of two categories: 1. Singers 2. Entertainers. The thinking behind the two groups being either you were singer who couldn’t dance or a dancer who couldn’t sing. (You wouldn’t go to a Whitney Houston concert for dance moves, and you wouldn’t go to a Janet Jackson concert for singing) Then came Beyonce, an artist who could sing AND entertain. This made it difficult for the singers because they not only had to struggle to find strong enough songs to compensate for the fact that they were boring live performers, and the entertainers had to find music (or gimmicks) strong enough to compensate for the fact that they couldn’t sing worth a damn. Then came Beyonce.

    Symptoms of Beyonceitis

    How do you know if you are infected by Beyonceitis? Here are some warning sign to look for:

    Your album sales have dropped.
    Your record label has been pushing your album back since Bush Sr. was in office.
    Your record label has dropped you.
    Your record label has tried to buy you out of your contract for $35, and a pack of Newports.
    Go to YouTube, and do a search for one of your videos, and see if Beyonce’s name is randomly bought up in the discussion.
    Your fans refer to Beyonce as “Fatonce”, “Bitchonce”, Weavyonce, or some variation with the suffix “-yonce”.

    LOVE IT, LOVE BRANDY ON ANYTHING!!!!! I love Tyrese’s R&B music tooo man, this is good look, yes I need it on my iPod.

  18. JP September 30, 2011

    Brandy! you make my day…so don’t you go away…u make me feel so goooooooood!

  19. Jessica September 30, 2011

    This is what I call a duet!!! This is what R&B is supposed to be!!! Not this s** you up nonsense, it’s about real love!!! I’m getting both of there albums when they come out. Good for you Tyrese and Brandy!!!

  20. VA STAND UP!!! September 30, 2011

    Wow! This is beautiful! There voices sound a amazing together! Tyrese has spent so much time making movies I forgot he could actually sing. He has a very beautiful smooth soulful voice. He should definitely make more music like this.

    Of course Brandy sounded beautiful as well. I’m really looking forward to hearing new music from her. I might check out Tyrese new album too.

  21. Bran Star October 1, 2011

    This is REAL R&B music. That is an example of what it should sound like. Tyrese has been away from the music scene for a while, but he hasn’t lost his touch. I’m so glad they had Brandy included on this song as well. Her voice sounds so gorgeous here, like it always has been. Their voices go together so well on this song! I can’t wait to cop both of their albums and support them!

  22. Remey October 1, 2011

    This song is so refreshing in an era dominated by repetitive, redundant Euro-pop. The melody is dream-like. The harmonies are soft and breathy but in a good way. This sounds like something from the Full Moon LP. Tyrese is such a true R&B artist. He has never deviated from his style. He is the equivalent to Monica. They should def do a duet. Those two would kill it. However, I love Brandy and Ty for this one. It makes me reminisce the days of late 80s early 90s R&B.

  23. Tiffany Roberson October 1, 2011

    This is the new wedding song of the decade!

  24. Mo Sweeta October 1, 2011

    Nice. Tyrese and Brandy sound good together.

  25. angelwoman October 1, 2011

    Omg…I lovveee this song!!! Tyrese choose the right person for this song…..People dont make music like this anymore

  26. Romel Moore October 1, 2011

    Shoutout to Ty & Brandy for the next black wedding anthem.

  27. Sheerthickness October 1, 2011

    This is a beautiful song, Tyrese and Brandy….. The collaboration is great now were waiting on the one with Monica…..

  28. Tyresha October 1, 2011

    Tyrese is a diva with a nasty attitude , and thankfully once again he has been called out publicly for the nasty way he treats people..shamelessly promoting his trash yet he cannot take responsibility for his own disgusting behaviour..he has proven himself to be a liar, a hypocrite and all his preaching is falling on dumb ears..look at this fool for what he is..a loser who cheated on and dumped his wife then berated her publicly trying to duck the blame for his own abusive behaviour..napoleon syndrome..the guy is so short i guess it enrages him..hey Ty can always tap some lifts on your shoes..give Tom Cruise a call for FRAUD and you are a DISGRACE to your race and only reinforce the ugly facts about your race..ghetto criminal thugs never change..shame on you!

  29. Drea October 1, 2011

    Why is it when someone speaks their mind they have to be rude. I have followrd Tyrese since he came out and I dont find that to be an attitude I find him self assured especially the older he gets and that is a good thing I am tired of everyone conforming to fit in even if you dont believe in that issue but you dont want to upset anyone Tyrese you keep speaking yp more people with a voice need to

  30. Chile Please!! October 1, 2011


  31. YEABEY is on your mind. October 1, 2011

  36. tilis October 2, 2011

    Tyrese and Monica have collaborated before (Youtube Go To Bed Mad), but I wouldn’t mind for them to link up again & for her and usher to do another collab.

  37. Karen October 2, 2011

    Sorry, but this is wack. Tyrese needs to get with some real songwriters. The music sounds like that canned stuff that amateurs use. Tyrese, I think you have gotten way too full of yourself…to the point that you are now unable to step away from your work and hear the wackness.

    People will support you, if they like you as a person…even if the songs are lame. With your recent public antics, you are losing fans (including me). I would not pay a nickle for this song because it is lame. It is long, rambling, trite (diamonds), and sappy for no reason. Brandy is just being nice by being on this song. Brandy, this is not a good look for you.

  38. keona October 2, 2011

    Brandy killed it I love Brandys voice she makes you feel and believe what she’s singing. Brandys voice just touches me and moves me there are not many singers out there that can actually make you feel what they are singing. Brandy gives her all to every song she records and you can just her the emotion in her voice not many can do what Brandy does with her voice, many have tried some have almost came close but the majority have failed. There’s only one Brandy she’s a living legend and I wish her nothing but the best. And Tyrese sounds great as well his voice and Brandys voice blend well together.

  39. LMAOOOOO October 2, 2011

    This song is so beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!! i really love it. They both sound so good. i grow up listenin’ to 80’s and 90’s R&B. this reminds me of it. 😀

  40. Rez October 4, 2011

    This is a nice song, now that Brandy did a song for Tyrese on his new album, Tyrese should go ahead a make song for Brandy on her upcoming album.. They both are talented singer.. They’re 2 of the best vocalists in the music game right now.. Tyrese and Monica already made a song together and Tyrese killed it.. Monica sounded alright, but Tyrese made the song.. I think Tyrese’s vocals are way better than Mo.. Just like Mo “killed” Keyshia on Trust..

  41. D-Money October 7, 2011

    Beautiful job!!!!! Brandy is coming majorly hard this time around…I’ll def be grabbing this album, and can’t wait for Brandy’s!!! Side note: if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say it all. Thank you!

  42. Michael November 26, 2011

    Brandy did her thing in this song. If Brandy sing like that on her new album it will be a hit. This is the Brandy that I reminder growing. Love it!!
