New Video: Tank – When We


Are you down for some kinky sex? If so, the visuals for Tank‘s “When We” will get you nice and ready for an erotic session. Even if you prefer vanilla sex, this sensual groove will intrigue you as your mind is stimulated with images of sexual innuendos.

Sinister synths play as he’s lured to what appears to be a warehouse after getting a note on his car that reads, “For a good time meet me here.” A sultry vixen greets him with a toss of dust into his eyes. As he wanders from room to room, he sees women in various phases of sexual liberation. This ain’t about love, it’s about lust.

Tank is in straight up ‘savage’ mode as he sings, “Stroke is getting deep and faster / Screaming like I’m out of line / Who came to make sweet love? / Not me / Who came to kiss and hug? / Not me / Who came to beat it up? … When we f—.”

The Grammy-Award nominated singer keeps the sex, love and pain in rotation with a raunchy twist. “When We” is the first single off his upcoming eighth studio album, Savage, which is set to drop this fall. The 14-city “Savage Tour” begins September 5 in Nashville. Other stops include New York, Boston and Memphis. Helping artists on the come up, he is giving local acts in each location the chance to open his show.

“For R&B there aren’t a lot of stages and TV shows and radio bandwidth dedicated to [the genre], so I feel it’s my responsibility to create opportunity for new artists,” he recently told Vibe. “Every city I go to, every city, there will be a local opening act. I’m going on Instagram, giving them 60 seconds at #OpenForTankSavageTour and I’m looking. I’m picking them myself, I’m watching all these videos of men, women, groups, dogs, I don’t care who it is. If you barking R&B and I like you, you gonna get on that stage.”

Known for his bold lyrics and undeniable sex appeal, Tank stays relevant on purpose.

“I wanted to be aggressive. Unapologetically aggressive too,” he says about Savage. “I just feel like for R&B music, especially my type of R&B, there needs to be some type of statement made. We can’t continue to speak softly in the hallways.”

Indeed, no soft speaking, we prefer screams of ecstasy. Peep the seductive “When We” video below.

Exclusive: Tank Shares Details On New Album ‘Savage’ at ESSENCE Fest 2017

Last year, Tank released the sequel to his acclaimed album Sex, Love & Pain. In 2017, the R&B General is planning to go ‘Savage‘ on us.

Releasing his new single “When We” last month, the singer/songwriter caters to the freaky side of love with the provocative sex jam. Joining all the festivities at this year’s ESSENCE Festival in New Orleans, Tank was ready and open to talk to ThisisRnB‘s own Ni’Kesia Pannell about the new single and upcoming album.

“We are savagely fighting for this space, we are aggressively injecting love back into the community,” said Tank. “I’m real happy about it. I’m happy that we are being aggressive, I’m happy that we are fighting, I’m happy that love has an army. Hate has one for sure, we see it everyday in our comments on Instagram and Twitter. But we gonna fight back, and ‘Savage’ is doing just that.”

In addition to discussing his new body-of-work, the R&B star told us that if he could have written any record by another artist, it would have been “Climax” by Usher. Sharing his love for song, he said, “At the moment that they were writing and producing that record, there was nothing better being made … Universally in the world…no one was making anything better.”

Tank also told us who his dream, all-star collaboration would be, if he could put himself and three other artists–dead or alive, on a song together.

Savage, which includes features from Trey Songz, Ludacris, and J. Valentine, is due out this coming September. Check out the interview above.

New Music: Tank – When We

Tank When We

It’s freaky Friday for Tank fans!

The R&B General returns today with a sultry new single titled “When We,” and it’s ready to hit your playtime playlists.

Over a slowing revolving production with heavy drums and snaps, the singer/songwriter gets his partner in the mood for some deep penetrating love making.

“I like it when you lose it / I like it when you go there / I like the way you use it / I like that you don’t play fair,” he sings.

Using a soft, falsetto tone Tank gets even more explicit with his commands, but the aggressiveness still comes off tender as he sings, “Face down, ass up / Back back back it up / Now let me get both of them legs and put them both behind your head.”

The crooner has been working on his upcoming album ‘Savage‘ which he has been teasing on Instagram this year.

ThisisRnB Presents: The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016

#Blessings 2016, we out!

Across the board it’s been a very interesting year for music, and R&B played a major role in adding unique projects to 2016. From our perspective–over the past couple of years–there appears to be a stronger push to return certain elements of traditional R&B to the mainstream public, even coming from the new generations. However, the genre is still evolving, continuing to grow and change, and creative progression is what we want to see.

What we heard this year, is a vast variety of R&B sounds, styles, and inspirations across many releases; from new breakout voices to mainstream megastars to long overdue comebacks from some of our most beloved singers. 2016 was the year for it all, whether you love buttery smooth soul, gritty blues, sinfully dark seduction, dance and sing-along anthems, retro funk and anything in-between, there was something for every taste in the many albums that were released this year.

Now, instead of offering our critical album rankings this year, we’ve taken a different approach to the list, and not placed the albums in number order, but just alphabetical. So click below to check out our list of The 20 Best R&B Albums of 2016, and also check out the results of our Readers’ Choice Poll on the last page as well!
