Tank Proves He’s A ‘Savage’ With 8th Studio Album

Published

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.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
