Tank On Poor Album Sales: “Maybe I Should Have Been Born White”

Published

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.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
