It’s the end of a chapter for Tank. The platinum-selling singer, songwriter and producer has released R&B Money, his tenth and final album. It’s his first proper album since 2019’s Elevation, which included the number one single “Dirty.”
The 17-track album includes the lead single “Can’t Let It Show.” The remorseful song, which sampled Kate Bush’s classic “This Woman’s Work,” was released in February 2021. It topped the R&B charts for two weeks that summer. It has exceeded 12 million streams on Spotify.
Tank followed up with the self-sampled “I Deserve” in October 2021. A month later, it reached the top ten of R&B radio before it eventually soared to No. 1 and became his sixth chart-topper on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart.
His third single, “Slow,” featuring his manager and occasional R&B singer J. Valentine, is close to cracking the top ten on R&B radio charts.
R&B Money is a consolidation of music made for love-making, a forte of Tank that has improved over time. Most notably, there’s “No Limit,” a steamy duet with Alex Isley that details boastful scenes when it comes to them exploring endless intimacy. Tank and Vedo demonstrate their unwillingness to leave the bedside of their respective lovers after a night of passion on “Morning.”

Not all of Tank’s album is sensual. His Chris Brown-assisted collaboration “See Through Love” is a sweet slow jam that deserves radio attention. He admits his faults on “Too Late,” a regretful cut where his partner isn’t taking him back this time.
R&B Money also features up-and-coming acts Rotimi, Blaq Tuxedo, Feather and TVERSE.
Of R&B Money, Tank describes it as “a labor of love to my fans and to the genre of R&B.” He adds, “I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for artists like Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Keith Sweat, Al Green, as well as my fans who inspire me every day to make music. I wanted this album to pay homage to my influences and my evolution as an artist, and I think that’s what this final album represents.”
Tank will support his R&B Money with a few upcoming concerts. On Aug. 25, he will perform at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, California. Then, he’ll join the lineup for D-Nice’s Club Quarantine Live in Vegas on Sept. 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Get ticket information here.
