As a collective, Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson will always be known as “Jody and Yvette from Baby Boy” … and if new reports are anything to go by, it looks like the pair are to re-unite for a second time in a new John Singleton movie!
Though details about the film (including a possible title or who else will be in it) have yet to be released, Tyrese recently revealed that it will most definitely NOT be a sequel to “Baby Boy,” which was released in 2001.
“Official.. Me and my girl Taraji are doing another classic together soon.!! John Singleton will be directing us. And not it’s not BB2.”
Tyrese recently sat down with an interview with Ace Showbiz, where he spilled the beans about the upcoming John Singleton flick:
The first single “Stay” was made available for purchase in August, and was written based on a relationship he had years ago. “I was in a relationship with this girl and I wasn’t making her priority. I did what I had to do to get her love me and like me and get her in a relationship with me and I basically at the time, which was years ago, … started to focus more on my career,” he shared. “So things got extra bad and I was begging her to stay.”
The love story was visualized in a beautifully-shot music video which sees Tyrese reuniting with his “Baby Boy” co-star and longtime pal Taraji P. Henson. “I love her [and] she loves me. She’s a beautiful person, very humble, funny as hell. Even though it’s been ten years [since ‘Baby Boy’] you can’t really put a timeline between magic,” he gushed. “I think she’s really special, beautiful and I was honored that she wanted to do my ‘Stay’ video.”
Talking about reunion with Taraji, Tyrese spilled further that he has been in talks with “Baby Boy” director John Singleton to team up with her again in a new movie. The rumor started swirling when “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” actress tweeted about her meeting with the two guys, and it was later confirmed by Tyrese himself. “John singleton is on a mission to get me and Taraji to do it again,” he stated.
Can’t wait to see how this new movie turns out!
In the meantime, look out for Tyrese’s upcoming album “Open Invitation,” due in stores on November 1st.
