Justin Timberlake, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams have been winning with singles that bleed throwback melodies and live instrumentation, drawing fans across genres.
It looks like Tank took notes on what listeners are gravitating towards. Pulling from the nostalgia from years before, Tank molded his new single “You’re a Star” with that format in mind. Based on the early response, it has the same potential to reach the masses. The record begins with triumph horns, leading assumptions to believe the song is for a person treated in royal honor. With Tank attempting to remain calm, it is obvious his better half is far greater than an arm candy; he croons “You're my brightest possession ever known/I would rather die than let you go girl/can’t describe this feeling in my soul.” At the core is a love song but without the sappiness; the free-spirited production crafted by Tank keeps the feelings high.
