Tank Talks New Album ‘Stronger,’ Managing his Female MC, TGT Fights & More

Tank The Breakfast Club

Tank released his brand new album Stronger last week, and he is continuing promo this week in NYC. Stopping by The Breakfast Club on Tuesday morning, the R&B General gave another entertaining and comical interview.

They opened the discussion talking about his 2013 turn-up song “Shots Fired” featuring Chris Brown, which is not on the new album, and according to Tank, his record label Atlantic Records did not want to support, even though it was ringing off in the clubs. They spent an extended portion of the chat talking and joking about TGT, and at one point while addressing if they ever got into fistfights, said Tyrese don’t want it with him. “He’s not gonna fight me, Tyrese can’t fight, Tyrese is an actor from Watts.” Shots Fired! But, it’s all just fun and games with the competitive friends.

Tank spoke about managing his female rapper Siya and her role on the new Oxygen reality show ‘Sisterhood of Hip Hop.’ He talked about his relationship with girlfriend Zena Foster, and shared his current views on marriage. He also spoke about his “Stronger U” workout campaign and spoke about his new album.

Listen! Tank – ‘Stronger’ (Full Album Stream)


A year after the official debut of TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank), with their album Three Kings, singer-songwriter-producer Tank is returning with his sixth studio album Stronger.

Lead by the singles “You’re My Star” and “Dance With Me,” the R&B General is in a new confident place in his life and career, and the new album reflects it. The LP is exceedingly more uptempo than most are used to from the R&B crooner, but he has not completely abandoned slow jams either. Previously releasing the introspective title track and most recently the personal ballad “Hope This Makes You Love Me,” Tank is delivering a balanced body of work.

“I think that in the space that I am in I’m having more fun with music, I’m having more fun in life, and that deserves some tempo,” Tank told us in an exclusive interview earlier this year.

The 10-track album contains no features, and boasts production from Jerry Wonda, Harvey Mason Jr. Tank himself and more.

Prior to the LP hitting stores on August 12, Tank is giving fans a preview with the full album stream!

List: The Best of July – Top 15 Records


While July is known for record-breaking temperatures, trips to water parks, school shopping and enjoying the last few weeks of summer, it’s known to us in the ThisisRnB offices as another month of solid R&B releases.

Whether you were a fan of Usher and Tanks’s dance heavy tracks or went the more subtle route with either Adrian Marcel or Azekel, there’s no denying that July brought ThisIsRnB listeners some pretty soulful and sultry singles. Following suit of June, July had its slow moments, but as always, true music showed up and showed out! While there’s really no way that we can make everyone happy with our lists, we definitely do the best we can by pulling the tracks that we feel are deserving of being deemed “Best of”.

Therefore, kick off your shoes and relax your feet as we bring you the tracks that had us hitting repeat all month long.
