"My music is the real me," says Tank. "Iíll either live by that or Iíll die by that in this business, but Iíve got to be me." Heís famous for sexy yet relatable love songs that are at once thoroughly modern and yet steeped in the sounds of classic soul. Though fans know and love Tank for smash hits like "Maybe I Deserve" and "Please Donít Go," they may be surprised to learn that he is also behind such chart-toppers as Rubben Studdardís "Change Me" and Omarionís "O." Whatís more, Tank served as an associate member of the hit-making production team, The Underdogs, with further credits including the smash soundtrack to the 2006 musical film adaptation of Dreamgirls (in which he also made a cameo). Since releasing his previous album Sex, Love, & Pain in 2007, Tank took a moment to step out of the spotlight, but not necessarily out of the studio. He formed the Los Angeles-based production company Song Dynasty, and began shaping the sound of modern R&B with songs for a diverse roster of artists including Keyshia Cole, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, and Keri Hilson. Though he has enjoyed crafting hits for these artists, Tank is ready to step into the spotlight yet again, and returns with an incredibly personal collection. "I put a lot of my personal business into my music because people relate to it. I sing based upon the things that Iíve been through. I donít just sing about the pain, I sing about getting through it. Whether Iím singing about sex, relationships, or the occasional party, the songs are still about classic R&B themes."
