Here's another artist that
is up and coming who's also got his sophomore set 'One
Man' out on the record selves as of last week. Tank's
debut release 'Forces of Nature'
took everyone by surprise with the mega smash hit 'Maybe
I deserve' going top ten on the R&B charts.
Born in Milwaukee, WI, now
residing in Clinton, MD, Tank
caught the singing bug at an early age, with a strong belief in
his alliance to religion -- at church where his cousin Alphonzo
Jiles directed the choir and helped him shape his singing
talent. His talent eventually got him an opportunity to sing background
vocals for Ginuwine where
he got noticed by Blackground Records founder Barry
Hankerson, and his son (and company president) Jomo
Hankerson who offered Tank the opportunity to record.
This also led him to writing tracks for the late and former label
mate Aaliyah ('I
Can Be and 'What If'
The track i'm interested
in is 'Supa Sexy' which should
be the follow up to the title track 'One
Man'. It features Cash Money Millionaires beat maestro
Manny Fresh and Jazze
Pha on the guest spots, giving the track the rap texture
treatment. Borrowing lines from Marvin
Gaye's 'Sexual Healing'
gives it that little added boost to boast but all in all a strong
dance floor mover for both radio and club.
Radio Program Directors
should take note and put this one in high rotation for your listening
ear - it's a great track. ATY-D
Pick through and though.
