Alter Ego is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Tyrese. It was released on December 12, 2006 through J Records. In its initial release, the album was formatted as a double album, intending to market Tyrese's contrasting facets of artistry. The first disc contains slow and midtempo pop and R&B songs, while the second, Black-Ty (named after his on-stage rapper alter ego), focuses on hip hop and uptempo beats. Guest features include The Game, Method Man, Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Lil Jon and Mannie Fresh, among others. The album debuted at number 23 on the US Billboard 200 and number 4 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart with 116,000 copies sold in its first week.[3] The first single was "One", while "Turn Ya Out" served as the second single.
