R&B singer Tank says he’s walking away from music after dismal sales for his latest album let him disheartened. The singer took to Instagram and posted a lengthy message explaining his departure from the singing game:
“If I look tired it’s because I am. I’m deeply saddened and disappointed that Stronger will not get a video or the continued promotion it deserves! I’d love to blame Atlantic Records but that would be a lie! It’s tough for record companies to continue to fund music that people don’t support!
I pride myself on giving you real musicianship, real singing, real lyrical content and being true to the music that inspired my very existence. The problem is there aren’t many people left that want to hear it or buy it and if there are they won’t stand up and be noticed!
Who am I doing this for? Who am I maintaining this so called integrity for? Not many as you can tell by my first week sales lol. The artist that don’t give a f— sell the most and do the most! Should that be my new route? Maybe I should have been born white then all of my music would go straight to mainstream and pop radio instead of urban, a format that continues to kill the true R&B artist! (Not mad at white artist just to be clear!) What I do know is that I will not continue to be faithful to something or someone that is not being faithful to me. I love you but I have a family. I have a mom and dad just like you. I have goals and dreams just like you. I refuse to work hard for nothing. I look better, sing better, produce better, write better, and perform better than damn near everybody and this is the thanks I get? Again, I’m not angry, I’m just tired. Please enjoy my last real R&B album “Stronger” cause you’ll never get another one!”
HipHollywood caught up with Tank earlier this year to talk about what’s now his last project. Check out our video interview after the jump.

Reality Show Curse Strikes Again? Lyrica Anderson & A1 May Be Searching For A Storyline, Not A Separation
Here we go again. Another reality TV couple bites the dust … or gets hella dramatic on social media in order to secure a new storyline. You decide!
Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star Lyrica Anderson had everyone talking when she took to Snapchat to post this little message.
The singer/songwriter outed her husband A1 Bentley as a cheater and vowed that she was #single … all on Snapchat. We’re calling BS, and here’s why — Princess Love. This whole “my man is cheating so I’m outing him on social media” must be in the Love & Hip Hop playbook. Ray J’s wife pulled the same stunt just a few weeks ago and we all know how that ended … with them back together. Honestly, this happens every season, and every season we fall for it. Well, no more.
Lyrica, we know you just put out new music and you want everyone to hear it, but this ain’t the way, sis. And A1, nice try with the whole, “I’m going to delete all her pics on IG” move, but we’ve been here, done that. We not falling for these antics anymore so it would be really dope if y’all would stop playing games and just be a happy married couple. Save the forced drama for Joseline Hernandez.
