Tank has issued the latest release from his forthcoming album “Sex, Love & Pain II (SLP2),” which will be available on Friday.
The new single entitled, “Relationship Goals” is a bedroom banger, that is sure to be a favorite during this current cuffing season and beyond. Tank‘s “SLP2” features the lead single “You Don’t Know” featuring Wale, as well as other collaborations with Chris Brown, Shawn Stockman, Yo Gotti, Siya, Sage The Gemini and Rich Homie Quan.
Tank, whose moniker refers to his physique, recorded solo albums sporadically, beginning with his 2001 debut Force of Nature, and became increasingly busy behind the scenes as a songwriter, musician, and producer.For several years, he busied himself as a songwriter, musician, and producer. His credits over this time period included songs on Aaliyah (Aaliyah, 2001), Things in the Game Done Changed (Dave Hollister, 2002), I Care 4 U (Aaliyah, 2002), U-Turn (Brian McKnight, 2003), Real Talk (Dave Hollister, 2003), Stronger Everyday (Jon B, 2004), Free Yourself (Fantasia Barrino, 2004), O (Omarion, 2005), Naked (Marques Houston, 2005), Charlie, Last Name Wilson (Charlie Wilson, 2005), Unpredictable (Jamie Foxx, 2005), Journey of a Gemini (Donell Jones, 2006), The Return (Ruben Studdard, 2006), Alter Ego (Tyrese, 2006), The Makings of Me (Monica, 2007), Veteran (Marques Houston, 2007), Ain’t Nothin’ Like Me (Joe, 2007), and Ms. Kelly (Kelly Rowland, 2007).
His third album, Sex, Love & Pain, issued in 2007, was subsequently nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best R&B Album. It’s “Please Don’t Go” was nominated for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance. In late 2009, he switched labels from Blackground to Atlantic — the same year he appeared on Chris Brown’s Grammy-nominated “Take My Time.” His first effort for Atlantic, 2010’s Now or Never, included the hit single “Sex Music” and featured Brown on the equally carnal “Foreplay.” The singers reunited in 2012 on the single “Lonely,” a track that landed on Tank’s 2012 album, This Is How I Feel. Along with Tyrese and Ginuwine, Tank formed TGT, who released an album, Three Kings, which debuted at number three in 2013. He quickly resumed solo activity with Stronger, his sixth album, the following year.
