Atlantic recording artist Tank has announced the release of his long awaited new album.  “SLP2” – the multiple GRAMMY® Award-nominated R&B superstar’s seventh solo album – drops everywhere on Friday, January 22nd.

 

“SLP2” is available for pre-order beginning today (http://smarturl.it/SLP2PreOrder), with all orders accompanied by an instant grat download of the powerful new track, “Better For You,” streaming now at Tank’s official YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/J2VSBu7dgPk.  “Better For You,” along with Tank’s discography, can also be streamed here: http://smarturl.it/TankDiscography

 

“SLP2” was heralded earlier this year by the premiere single, “You Don’t Know (Feat. Wale).” The track – available for download on all DSPs http://smarturl.it/YDK and streaming http://smarturl.it/YDKS – has just been joined by a powerful companion video, streaming now at Tank’s official YouTube channel. 

 

“SLP2” – which features incredible collaborations with Chris Brown, Sage the Gemini, Rich Homie Quan, Yo Gotti, Siya, and Boyz II Men’s Shawn Stockman – is Tank’s long anticipated sequel to his 2007 blockbuster third album, “SEX, LOVE & PAIN.” Highlighted by the #1 hit single, “Please Don’t Go,” the collection made an explosive #2 debut on the SoundScan/Billboard 200 while also arriving atop Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart. What’s more, “SEX, LOVE & PAIN” received a prestigious GRAMMY® Award nomination as “Best R&B Album,” with “Please Don’t Go” getting a nod as “Best R&B Male Vocal Performance.”

 

Durrell “Tank” Babbs is one of contemporary R&B/hip-hop’s most honored and enduring superstars, a gifted producer, songwriter and extraordinary vocal talent. “SEX, LOVE & PAIN PART II” follows last year’s acclaimed “STRONGER,” which, like its 2012 predecessor, “THIS IS HOW I FEEL,” debuted in the #1 spot on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart upon its initial release. In 2013, Tank teamed with fellow superstars Tyrese and Ginuwine as TGT, scoring another #1 debut on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” ranking – and a top 3 entry on the main Billboard 200 – with their worldwide smash album, “THREE KINGS.”

 

Along with his brilliant musical career, Tank is currently starring in TV One’s smash series, Born Again Virgin, now kicking off its much-anticipated second season. Last night also saw the iconic star joining fellow R&B favorites like John Legend and Mary J. Blige on Fox’s Empire spin-off special, Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays (LINK TK).
