With a week to go before R&B General Tank releases his next studio album, Savage, He ups the ante by releasing the new song, “Sexy.” On the symphonic, string-infused ballad, the Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter use satisfying lyrics and rich melodies to show his lady that he’s been longing for her.
“Can you tell me when you’re coming through, ’cause I need you baby,” Tank riffs.
“Sexy” follows the recently released “F It Up,” as well as the lead song “When We” and the title track “Savage,” all set to appear on 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 about 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 culminates on September 27 in Pittsburgh at the Rex Theater.
