Back in September, it was announced that Barry Hankerson’s Blackground Records 2.0 has re-released Tank’s first three albums to streaming platforms. Closely following the exciting news, Tank has returned with his latest single this week titled “I Deserve.” On the song, he’s on a mission to “bring back R&B”:
How did he get the drop on me? How did he come and chose to be not with me? Yeah/ Why couldn’t you just rock with me? I’m changin’, I know you’ve been through a lot with me, yeah I know that my ego wouldn’t let you breathe
Never thought you’d leave I’m not cryin’, I got allergies I be lying ‘cause I really want you back with me/ Flossin’ and flexin’ goin’ wrong (Yeah) Left you unattended way too long (Yeah) I was just concerned about the drip (Drip)/ I buy you nice things that your heart couldn’t feel (Yeah)
Last year, Tank liberated the two EPs While You Wait and Worth The Wait, two piano-led projects that were released under the singer’s own R&B Money imprint. Prior to that, he blessed the masses with his ninth studio LP ELEVATION, which contained 14 cuts and a slew of contributions from Omari Hardwick, Carvena Jones, JoJo, Keith Sweat, Candice Boyd, Luke James, Rahky, Chris Brown, and more. In addition to his own work, Tank has also provided his services for the likes of Q Parker, Ye Ali, and Rotimi, among others. This past February, Tank returned with the infectious track “Can’t Let It Show,.”
In other exciting Tank-related news, Tank is nominated for the 2021 American Music Awards in the Favorite Male R&B Artist category. “Stop playing wit me 21 years later! God is good,” he typed. “Vote now by searching ‘AMAs’ on TikTok. Don’t miss the #AMAs Blessings to all the other nominees but I’m taking this one!”
