Tank had R&B fans scratching their heads wondering if he was coming or going last night. The R&B crooner announced on Instagram he was through with music. Tank’s latest album Stronger hasn’t been doing too great, and the singer read the R&B community for not giving him any love. Tanks also goes in on “blue-eyed” soul singers coming for R&B artists spots and wonders if he were white would his album sales be through the roof. According to Tank,
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!)
For a moment, fans thought Tank was hanging it up and leaving R&B behind but apparently that isn’t the case. After Tank got all out of his feelings, he returned to the social media site to insist he’s not going anywhere. Ok Effie White.. Tank remarked,
QUIT MUSIC?….LMAO. TO ALL THE SUPPORTERS AND THOSE WHO SENT ME ENCOURAGEMENT BECAUSE YOU FELT LIKE I WAS LEAVING I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!..
