Tank is sharpening his creative cutlery to carve out a song with Brandy.
Details on the song and the performer’s brand new album via his interview with That Grape Juice below…
I wanted my music to be just as passionate as anything else out there. When you have talent you can be tempted to scale back on showmanship and production and depend on your talent one but that takes away the competitiveness because theres nothing built around the talent to attract the new fans. I’m working harder than ever before.”I’m an athlete so my competitive juice is on 1000 at this point. At the same time, I’ve just allowed my natural growth to come through. No mood boards, no storyboards, just unapologetic natural and authentic growth.
A TGT reunion is impossible at this point unfortunately. You know, people use the culture word a lot without understanding what it meas. Doing something for the culture means you’re putting in and not taking out. TGT doesn’t help me monetarily but it helps all of us culturally to have three powerful black men who are trailblazers in their lane work together. They’ll always be my brothers.
I’m 41 but I feel 25 and it’s because I’m being driven by new energy which my fans have given me. My core fans are the same age as me and are at a point in their life where they are experienced and established enough to be grown and sexy but are still very youthful. My music speaks to that place because I’m in that place.
Also on the agenda?
A Brandy collaboration.
“This is your exclusive”, he begins. “Yeah, Brandy and I are working on a song together. We bumped into each other recently, looked at each other and we both knew. The fans have wanted a song from us for a long time so it has to be right. I don’t want it to be a competition or a vocal battle…I want it to be a real duet.”
‘Savage‘ is out now.
