R&B General Tank drops off another banger as he gears up for the release of his new album, Savage. On the slow-burning ballad, ‘F It Up,’ the Grammy nominated singer and songwriter invite his lady to put it on him with no holding back.
“Let that thing take me on a trip / To every private place inside of it,” he sings. “Every private place I want to fit / Inside the kind of places I won’t forget.”
We’re sure men will play this record for their significant others.
“F It Up,” which follows-up the lead song “When We” and the title track “Savage,” is the third single from Savage, which is due out September 29. The 11-track LP features appearances by Candice Boyd, J. Valentine, Ludacris, and labelmate Trey Songz as well as production from Da Internz, Harmony Samuels, and Cardiak.
Speaking on the album, Tank told fans that it’s a continuation of his last project.
“Savage actually picks up where ‘Sex Love and Pain II’ left off. It actually picks up where “She With the Sh*t,” ” Love Ya,” and “F**kin Wit Me” left off,” he says. “It’s like here’s a complete body of work with those moments. It’s the aggressive fight for position that I feel my style of R&B needs in order to be current, in order to be alive, in order to be heard. It’s gotta be packaged up in a way that the kids can listen and still be inspired but not feel like they’re completely taken out of their element or completely taken off of the wave they are already on. So we’re kinda taking my style ofR&B and meeting everyone where they are right now .. and it’s kinda working [laughs].”
Tank is currently on his 15-city “SAVAGE Tour,” which kicked off on September 5 at the City Winery in Nashville and culminates on September 27 in Pittsburgh at the Rex Theater.
