Get On The Bus: Tyrese Promotes ‘Black Rose’ Album With Reenactment Of 1994 Coca-Cola Commercial

Tyrese has gone from singing on the train to singing on the bus. In his latest public effort to promote his final solo album, Black Rose, Tyrese took to a New York City bus. Belting out the track, “Shame,” the singer/actor/semi-professional public transportation performer gave a nostalgia-inducing reenactment of his famous 1994 Coca-Cola commercial.

“Sometimes you just gotta take em back to where it ALL STARTED!!!!!! 20 years ago…. I took this ride and it changed my life forever – to God be ALL the Glory…,” he wrote.

At the end of his short performance, Tyrese also offered up a few of his now-signature inspirational words, encouraging viewers to follow their dreams.

“It’s okay to be a dreamer. It’s okay to think big. It’s okay to dream beyond your reality. It’s alright. God bless our world,” he said. “Black Rose, I’m gonna rest until it’s No. 1 on Billboard R&B, No. 1 on the Top 200. It’s okay to dream big, remember that. One love.”
