After a successful debut album alongside his TGT group members Tyrese and Tank, it looks like Ginuwine is finally ready to come out with a solo album again. New music from Ginuwine is always great, but what makes this project even better is that Ginuwine will be linking back up with Timbaland. They had a brief reunion on “Get Involved” back in 2009, but it looks like this time it’s the real deal. A lot of people may not realize that Ginuwine hasn’t put out a solo album since “Elgin” which came out in 2011.
That hasn’t kept him out of the spotlight though as he’s been able to do tour all over the world thanks to his extensive list of hits. Now with TGT’s status being questionable at best, it looks like right now is the perfect time for Ginuwine to re-establish himself as one of the premiere male artists. He’s only been making hits since he came out with “Pony” back in 1996. YouKnowIGotSoul had a chance to talk to him about his upcoming project “Same Ol’ G”, linking back up with Timbaland and his decision to go into the Urban AC route early on in his career.

Production from Timbaland and co produced with Team Timbo producer kAui. This single was taken from Timbaland recent Mixtape called King Stays King.
