The R&B singer-songwriter recently released his ninth studio album, Elevation.
In our latest installment of our okay acoustic series, R&B singer-songwriter Tank offered sensual renditions of his songs “I Don’t Think You’re Ready” and “When We,” which are from his albums Elevation (released in October this year) and Savage (2017), respectively. (Warning: the songs contain explicit content.)
With only a piano by his side, Tank’s performance strips away the electronic elements of the two tracks while keeping their sensuality intact.
“Music is the place. It’s a special place where you can pretty much communicate anything you want,” Tank says during the performance. “In this day and age I think we need to communicate more love, more sensitivity, more understanding. And that’s what my music is and what it’s about.”
“Communicating those ideas, communicating that energy, I think is absolutely infectious,” he continues. “I don’t know if it’s gonna be one person to save the world, but I do believe that it may be one song.”
Tank recently released his ninth studio album Elevation. The project features JoJo, Omari Hardwick and others.
