Strength can often be found in the midst of struggle. It's in those moments of hardship that we fully understand who we are and what we're really capable of. Grammy Award-nominated R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Tank realized that in late 2012. While working on the TGT super group album, Three Kings, with Ginuwine and Tyrese, he simultaneously endured a string of revelatory personal shakeups.
Tank makes music you can live with forever. His first two classics, 2001's Force of Nature and 2002's One Man, both achieved gold status, while his most recent solo outing This Is How I Feel landed in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 upon its debut. He's garnered an impressive four Grammy Award nominations and collaborated with everybody from Chris Brown and Drake to Omarion and Kelly Rowland.
