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.” Following 2014’s Stronger, Tank once again captured a creative spirit that resembled the process behind his seminal third body of work.As far as sequels go, Tank knew he had to go even bigger to make SLP2 the blockbuster audiences desired. In addition to cameos from Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men and Yo Gotti, he assembled a new West Coast anthem in the form of the Tank produced “Birthday” with a little help from Chris Brown, Problem, and Siya. He also teamed up with TGT collaborator and producer Brandon “BAM” Hodge to “help set the musical tone,” of this new project.
Robert Christopher Riley hails from the Flatbush section of Brooklyn (NY), but has deep Caribbean roots, as he was raised by his Trinidadian mother and grandmother while having a father from Barbados. Riley is a graduate of Brooklyn Technical High School (‘98) where he earned a Regents diploma before attending Lehigh University (’03) in Bethlehem, PA., for his B.A. in Theatre. While attending Lehigh, Riley was cast in the role of ‘Walter Lee’ in the play, “A Raisin in the Sun” and later went on to co-write along with Kashi Johnson (his professor and mentor), “Untold Truths: Why We Always Sit Together”. The play, which was about the minority experience at predominately white institutions of education, received rave reviews and was performed nightly before sold-out audiences at the Touchstone Theatre. After graduation, in the fall of 2003, Riley accepted a full-scholarship to Ohio University’s MFA-Acting Program. While completing his degree (’06), he was cast in several independent films as well as numerous commercials and print ads. Riley continued his career by doing voiceover work for Verizon, the NFL and Rockstar Games, to name a few. Most recently, in April 2012, he was cast as ‘Terrence Wall’ (a series regular) in VH1’s “Hit the Floor”.

His father a comedian and his mother a successful model, James was born with entertainment in his blood. He started modelling at age 15, working with Nivea, Valentino and the coveted Calvin Klein to name just a few, and signed with IMG and Select Model Management. After a decade of modelling, James was introduced to the world of the stage and immediately discovered that acting was his true passion. After honing his craft with the world famous Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, James went on to land the lead roles in two major off-Broadway shows, The Tiger and Tesla. Testing his skills on short film Deep Water, James realised he was most at home on camera. In January 2014, James made the jump out to Los Angeles and signed with Innovative Artists, Schumacher Management and Core MGMT. His commitment to his new path was immediately rewarded when he became the face of the Three Olives Vodka, taking over from brand ambassador Clive Owen. The mesmerising ‘Werewolf of London’ campaign earned James his heartthrob status, which then led to him being cast in BET Network’s Being Mary Jane. His recurring role as Gabrielle Union’s love interest is an exciting and developing story which we look forward to exploring...
