Tank has been the man since the "Baby I Deserve" days. This guy has all the qualities of a super hero wrapped into an R&B singer. He has written and performed music that has always maintained a level of integrity and quality. He seems to find that balance between keeping it true to himself and staying with the times. He understands his fans and his fans understand him through his emotion drenched lyrics. He is a perfect balance between masculinity and sensitivity.
"What makes me stronger is growth," Tank tells us. "If we all give away ourselves to experience and except the teachings that goes along with everything you have gone through you have no choice but to benefit from the trials and tribulations. You learn from the good times as well as the bad."
As Tank delivers a new album entitled, " Stronger," we see how he has matured and why he has become stronger for himself as well as for the R&B genre. Here are five reasons we have love for the artist we call Tank.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that Tank is a lady's man. He loves taking his shirt off and unlike some unfit rappers that may remain nameless, no one has a problem with it. It is not just his physic that the ladie love … he has a personality and spirit that is positive and infectious. His hardwork and dedication to his craft only add to the artist we know as Tank. All of these qualities help to make a man that the ladies can't resist.
R&B has been taking blows left and right as a genre this last decade. R&B music has been responsible for influencing various other genre and successful artists, however, many artists have shyed away from the genre. Yet, Tank has found a way to keep it true to the genre he represents to the fullest. R&B has made him stronger, and it seems with Tank's efforts, he has made the genre stronger.
This vocalist, keyboardist, pianist, singer-songwriter and part time " comedian" has been giving us that pure R&B for years now. The workaholic as an singer, dancer, actor, model, musician has been able to pump out seven albums. ("Force of Nature", "One Man", "Sex, Love & Pain", "Now or Never", "This Is How I Feel", "Three Kings" (TGT), "Stronger"). He has worked with artists such as Tyrese, Jon B, Kelly Rowland, Keyshia Cole, Omarion, The Game and Kendrick Lamar. Tank is a true artist that continues to give us great material.
During our cover shoot with Tank, he shared his love for his four children(Jordan , Ryen, Zoey & Durrell). He talked about his humble beginnings and how his parents raised him right. Those humble beginnings still help to motivate him to give his kids all the things he did not have growing up. It also doesn't stop himself from getting a toy or two from time to time for himself.
Tank has always been a team player even before he became a solo artist. Touring with Ginuwine helped him understand the game. This part of his journey would help to form a strong bond between these artists and would later be a catalyst for the formation of TGT, which includes Ginuwine, Tank and Tyrese. Seeing how much respect he has for his peers helps us understand his character as not just a musician but as a man.
