Tank

Contemporary R&B singer Tank, whose moniker refers to his physique, recorded solo albums sporadically, beginning with his 2001 debut Force of Nature, and became increasingly busy behind the scenes as a songwriter, musician, and producer. Born Durrell Babbs in Milwaukee, Wisconsin before later moving to the Washington, D.C., suburb of Clinton, Maryland, Tank became interested in music at an early age. As a youth, he was able to develop his singing ability at his local church, where his cousin was choir director. As a teenager, Tank became interested in sports as well as music, and he considered playing college football.

Ultimately, he stuck with music and landed an opportunity to sing background vocals for Ginuwine. Further opportunities presented themselves, most notably with Dave Hollister, whose album Chicago '85... The Movie (2000) includes several songs credited to Tank. A recording contract with Blackground Records followed, subsequently resulting in Tank's solo debut, Force of Nature (2001), which spawned a pair of singles ("Maybe I Deserve," "Slowly") and topped Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (number seven overall). A second solo album, One Man (2002), followed shortly thereafter and was nearly as successful as its predecessor, spawning another pair of singles ("One Man," "Let Me Live") and breaking into the Top Five of the R&B album chart (number 20 overall).

For several years, he busied himself as a songwriter, musician, and producer. His credits over this time period included songs on Aaliyah (Aaliyah, 2001), Things in the Game Done Changed (Dave Hollister, 2002), I Care 4 U (Aaliyah, 2002), U-Turn (Brian McKnight, 2003), Real Talk (Dave Hollister, 2003), Stronger Everyday (Jon B, 2004), Free Yourself (Fantasia Barrino, 2004), O (Omarion, 2005), Naked (Marques Houston, 2005), Charlie, Last Name Wilson (Charlie Wilson, 2005), Unpredictable (Jamie Foxx, 2005), Journey of a Gemini (Donell Jones, 2006), The Return (Ruben Studdard, 2006), Alter Ego (Tyrese, 2006), The Makings of Me (Monica, 2007), Veteran (Marques Houston, 2007), Ain't Nothin' Like Me (Joe, 2007), and Ms. Kelly (Kelly Rowland, 2007). His third album, Sex Love & Pain, issued in 2007, was subsequently nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best R&B Album. It's "Please Don't Go" was nominated for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance.

In late 2009, he switched labels from Blackground to Atlantic -- the same year he appeared on Chris Brown's Grammy-nominated "Take My Time." His first effort for Atlantic, 2010's Now or Never, included the hit single "Sex Music" and featured Brown on the equally carnal "Foreplay." The singers reunited in 2012 on the single "Lonely," a track that landed on Tank's 2012 album, This Is How I Feel. Along with Tyrese and Ginuwine, Tank formed TGT, who released an album, Three Kings, which debuted at number three in 2013. He quickly resumed solo activity with Stronger, his sixth album, the following year, and issued a sequel to Sex Love & Pain in 2016. ~ Jason Birchmeier

Dont read this. You will be kiss on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now you've started reading this. Dont stop this is freaky. But if you read this and ignore it, then you will have very bad luck put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When youre done press the space bar and your chrush's name will appear in big letters on the screen this is so creepy because it actually works.
