R&B powerhouse Tank is giving us a sneak peek into his music video for his latest single, “Next Breath”.
The visual, directed by Mike Ho (Teyana Taylor’s “Her Room’), features a side that Tank says we rarely see in R&B. In a recent interview, Tank revealed that the record “digs deep into the male ego,” and shows “vulnerability.” Written and produced by Tank, Kevin McCall, Micah, and Sammie, “Next Breath” will appear on Tank’s fifth album, This Is How I Feel. This album is the follow up to Tank’s 2010 Top 10 album, Now or Never.
After releasing his much talked-about single, “I Can’t Make You Love Me”, Tank revealed that the Recording Academy called his label, Atlantic Records, and praised his cover of Bonnie Raitt’s 1990′s love song, “I Can’t Make You Love Me”. The single did not appear on list of nominations for 2012.
Since his 2001 solo debut, Tank has released five albums, all of which have charted on the Billboard 200, with 2007′s Sex, Love & Pain charting the highest at #2. As a producer, Tank has written and produced for Jamie Foxx, Monica and even nominated for a Grammy for his work on Chris Brown’s “Take My Time”. Other than Kevin McCall, producers on the latest effort include Troy Taylor, Mario Winans, The Composer, Danjahandz, and of course, Tank himself.
This Is How I Feel is scheduled for a May 2012 release. Catch Tank on “The Couple’s Retreat Tour” live in Washington D.C. tonight (February 14) at the Opera Lounge. Remaining dates for the tour are below:
