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.
