Tank is finally speaking out about his performance of the National Anthem during last weekend’s Mayweather vs Alvarez fight.

While on the red carpet for Laura Govan’s birthday bash in Hollywood on Saturday night, HipHollywood caught up with Tank to get his reaction on some of the backlash he received after his rendition of the nations anthem.

“I didn’t really see a whole lot of criticism. I saw a lot of people wanting what they wanted. I think that as an individual and as an artist, I have the right to be creative and express that,” Tank explained.

“For the most part the people that understand that and expect that, they love what we did. We broke records with viewership, so I had to do something special. I had do something memorable, and they’re talking, so we’ll take all that,” he added.

After the singer’s performance, Twitter blew up with reactions:

“@TheRealTank just killed that National Anthem,” actor Robbie Jones wrote.

“Lets be very very clear …. My brother @TheRealTank just smashed the national anthem,” TGT’s Tyrese wrote.

But the response to the singer’s vocals weren’t all positive.

NFL Player Takeo Spikes wrote, “Am I the only one that feel like Tank just butchered the national Anthem #RandBremix.”

“Why is Tank making the national anthem sound like a Christmas carol,” another Twitter user wrote on the social media website.
