R&B Singer, Tank Vows To Never Make A “Real R&B Album” Again After His Album, “Stronger” Tanks

Entertainment & Celebrities / December 19, 2014

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?”

 

R&B Singer, Tank Vows To Never Make A "Real R&B Album" Again After His Album, "Stronger" Tanks

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”

Wow!

WOW really? He thinks that if he were white, he’d get more sales? If they aren’t feeling the product he puts out, they won’t buy it either. Not sure why his album isn’t selling but don’t put it on the backs of the consumer. What has his record company done in regards to marketing the product? Because honestly, I didn’t see much promotion for it. As a matter of fact, where are they at telling him to stop acting like a Diva? All I’ve seen is him spouting off about his girlfriend (which personally I care nothing about), and now this. Nobody OWES him anything and he sounds like a child throwing a tantrum. There are other artist that weren’t and haven’t been taken seriously. They’ve been in the game much longer than he has, and quite frankly have more to offer. At no time did they behave or make statements such as these. He’s making himself look bad.

    Monica, you are SO Right! Where is his PR team and didn’t anyone tell him that this little rant can be a career killer (will, I guess it’s already dead). I haven’t seen any promotion around it either and he has been ion the game long enough to be able to have some say so in what happens in his music career.
    Everyone is not meant to be around forever and maybe he just needs to own that people are not checking for him anymore and figure out what his next career move will be.

      Exactly Ty!! Hopefully someone will clue him in or he will realize on his own. There are quite a few other artist who haven’t blown up or had an album (or two) not do well. They didn’t throw a tantrum, they kept going and still have strong fan a strong fan base. Says he ‘vows’ to never make another R&B album, so hope he has a plan “B”.



Let's Talk! I want to know what you think?
