Not long ago, Diddy sparked an old, yet reliable conversation on Twitter by asking, “Who killed R&B?” While some may attempt to answer the question, others completely reject the premise. In reality, R&B is far from dead or in need of a revival. Just last year, Jazmine Sullivan, Leon Bridges, Summer Walker, Tinashe, H.E.R and Snoh Aalegra delivered quality R&B projects. This year, the ball has kept rolling with Lucky Daye, Brent Faiyaz and Chris Brown have set the tone. Not to mention, Ari Lennox and dvsn have new projects on the way while Kenny Dixon is blazing the country with one of the most underrated tours in recent memory. With all of that going on, the OGs of the R&B game are still making their voices heard.
Tank has returned with his tenth studio album, R&B Money. Released through his joint venture with Atlantic Records, Tank’s latest LP features Alex Isley, Chris Brown, Vedo, Rotimi, Feather, TVERSE. The project also includes the previously released singles, “I Deserve,” “Can’t Let It Show” and “Slow” featuring J. Valentine.
Not only is J. Valentine featured on the album, but he and Tank have teamed up for podcast leading up to the album’s release. Under the R&B Money moniker, Tank and J. Valentine have sat down with the likes of Trevor Jackson, Nick Young, Jamie Foxx, Eric Bellinger and several others. Together, they talk all things R&B and life.
Tank will celebrate the release of R&B Money by performing at The GRAMMY Museum on August 25 in Los Angeles, California. Before tickets sell out, check out the R&B veteran’s latest LP below.
