“SEX LOVE & PAIN II” marks 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 wrapping up its highly rated second season. In addition, Vanity Fair recently hailed the iconic star as “a super hot singer” for his show-stealing performance on Fox’s Empire spin-off special, Taraji and Terrence’s White Hot Holidays. Don’t miss his next TV appearance, performing on BET’s Celebration of Gospel set to air January 31st.
