TGT2013_7‘What’s up New York!” yelled Tyrese then he hooked up his iPhone to Keyboard player’s laptop and started to sing his highest charting single “Sweet Lady.” You can see the look on Genuwine’s face, ‘oh, no, you didn’t’ he unplugged it and connected his iPhone and the first bars of his debut song “Pony” made audience roar.
