Tank & Leela James
While making his seventh full-length album, SLP2 [R&B Money/Atlantic Records], Tank posed a crucial question.
“What does cutting edge R&B sound like in 2016?” he asks.
He answered that question by crafting the long-awaited sequel to his influential 2007 opus, Sex, Love & Pain. That album not only provided a blueprint for the likes of Chris Brown, Trey Songz, and more, but it also debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned a Grammy Award nomination for “Best R&B Album,” while its #1 single “Please Don’t Go” became nominated for “Best R&B Male Vocal Performance.”
