Tank took to Instagram today to rant about poor album sales of his new album, “Stronger.”
If you are a Tank fan, this rant may be a bit disheartening but it seems as though the R&B crooner is feed up with music and wished that he was white so that mainstream radio would play his music. I have to say that after reading his rant, I felt bad for him, especially after he brought up the fact that he has a family. I’m guessing that those checks aren’t paying the bills.
But did he REALLY say, “I look better, sing better, produce better, write better, and perform better than dam near everybody and this is the thanks I get?”
Seems as though Tank is a little down these days and seems to question his desire to continue in the R&B game. Read what he had to say…
“If I look tired it’s because I am. I’m deeply saddened and disappoint that “Stronger” will not get a video or the continued promotion it deserves! I’d love to blame @atlanticrecords but that would be a lie! It’s tough for record companies to continue to fund music that people don’t support! I pride myself on giving you real musicianship, real singing, real lyrical content and being true to the music that inspired my very existence. The problem is there aren’t many people left that want to hear it or buy it and if there are they won’t stand up and be noticed! Who am I doing this for? Who am I maintaining this so called integrity for? Not many as u can tell by my first wk sales..lol. The artist that don’t give a fuck sale the most and do the most! Should that be my new route? Maybe I should have been born white then all of my music would go straight to mainstream and pop radio instead of urban ac.. A format that continues to kill the true R&B artist! (Not mad at white artist just to be clear!) What I do know is that i will not continue to be faithful to something or someone that is not being faithful to me. I love you but I have a family. I have a mom and dad just like you. I have goals and dreams just like you. I refuse to work hard for nothing. I look better, sing better, produce better, write better, and perform better than dam near everybody and this is the thanks I get?.. Again I’m not angry I’m just tired.. Please enjoy my last real R&B album “Stronger” cause you’ll never get another one! #letterfromaking”
