Tank - Emergency
To help pacify anxious fans counting down the days until Tank releases his debut album on Atlantic Records, Now or Never, the smooth voiced r&b veteran Tank has released his second single Emergency, a follow up to previous effort Sex Music. Tailor made to fulfill our need for some classically oriented r&b grooves, Emergency combines a nice piano riff and laid back yet head bobbing drum pattern, perfect for setting the mood with that right person, or just relaxing after a long stressful day at work. Tank, as always, comes in with his trademark combination of downy vocals and power that have kept him on top in an industry where many struggle to stick around after one album. Although I personally feel Tank could have come in a little stronger vocally, the melody is catchy, the mood is right and over all this feels like a very solid selection for a second single. Does anyone disagree? We can expect much more quality r&b from Tank (perhaps including a recently leaked record with Drake) before his upcoming album, the aforementioned Now or Never, hits stores and online outlets December 14.
