Tank Recruits Trey Songz and Ty Dolla Sign for ‘When We’ Remix

Tank’s gold-selling single “When We” continues to evolve.The R&B General teams up with his label mates Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign for the official remix.

Hoping to add spice to Valentine’s Day playlists, the three R&B crooners update the sex-driven track with their own bedroom escapades.

Trigga opens up the track with his seductive verse, where he tells his woman he wants to take his time making sweet love to her. “I love the way you fuck me / But you don’t understand it’s way more than fucking when I fuck you / I would cross the ocean for you / Stroking through the ocean for you,” he sings.

Dolla Sign follows up with a braggadocio verse about his lovemaking skills. “Ride me like a pony / These niggas so phony / Treat you like a trophy / You know I pick up when the phone rings / You know I go deep until I make you scream,” he sings.

The original version of “When We” appears on Tank’s latest album, Savage, which released last fall. The song has over 17 million streams on Spotify alone.
