R&B star Tank has dropped his 8th studio album and it’s titled Savage for good reason. With an edgier sound, NSFW lyrics and adult subject matter the multi-Grammy nominated crooner is definitely taking some risks and pushing the envelope with his new material.
“I wanted to push the line with R&B and how aggressive it is,” he said. “How it’s sang, the words we use, the subject matter, I wanted to push the line.”
And one listen to his lead single “When We” and you’ll know exactly what he means.
“I’m sure there are going to be some people that are like ‘oh my God’ I can’t believe he said that. Then there are going to be some people who are really excited about it too, some closet freaks,” he joked. “But that’s the objective to be seen and to be heard as an R&B singer.”
And it’s that “savage” mentality that’s allowed the award-winning songwriter and producer to stay the course for the last 17 years.
“We are always trying to be better than our last effort, that’s always the challenge,” he explained. “But when you think about the time, “Maybe I Deserve” which was my first record came out in 2000, this is 17 years later, so to put out an album [now] that people still care about is pretty cool.”
Savage, which features appearances by Candice Boyd, J. Valentine, Ludacris, and labelmate Trey Songz as well as production from Da Internz, Harmony Samuels, and Cardiak is available now for download and purchase.
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
