Kicking off his biggest and best era yet.
Tank brings us another sizzling R&B anthem in the form of "You Don't Know" [featuring Wale], dropping Friday, August 21. It's the first single from SLP2 [Atlantic Records], the singer's forthcoming seventh full-length album and sequel to 2007's iconic and Grammy Award-nominated Sex, Love & Pain. Hot on the heels of last year's phenomenal Stronger, Tank once again delivers. Over a smooth and subtle beat, his instantly recognizable voice takes flight. He can hit those high notes like nobody's business, while covering the entire gamut with that dynamic delivery. In between an immediately unforgettable refrain, "You don't know," Wale pops up with a stunning verse of his own.
Tank maintains the hallmarks of classic R&B, yet he's always pushing the genre forward at the same time. "You Don't Know" is the start of something very special for the singer. With real power and passion, it's another new dawn, and it's going to kick off his biggest and best era yet with SLP2.
