“SEX LOVE & PAIN II,” Tank’s scintillating seventh solo album, came in at #1 on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” tally upon its arrival last month – the multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee’s third consecutive – and fifth overall – release to reach the chart’s top spot. “SEX LOVE & PAIN II” – is available now in stores and at all DSPs http://smarturl.it/SLP2 and to stream http://smarturl.it/SLP2Stream.
“SEX LOVE & PAIN II” was first heralded by last year’s acclaimed single, “You Don’t Know (Feat. Wale).” The track is accompanied by a powerful companion video, now approaching 1.5 million views at Tank’s official YouTube channel.
What’s more, “SEX LOVE & PAIN II” showcases such powerful new tracks as “#BDAY (Feat. Chris Brown, Siya, Sage The Gemini),” “Already In Love (Feat. Shawn Stockman),”“Better For You,” “Relationship Goals,” and “She Wit The S*** (Feat. Rich Homie Quan),” all of which are streaming now at Tank’s official YouTube and all streaming services.
Tank is celebrating “SEX LOVE & PAIN II” with a series of high profile TV performances, continuing this week with a visit to Warner Bros.’ nationally syndicated The Real (check local listings). The appearance follows Tank’s recent performance of “You Don’t Know” on NBC’s TODAY as well as a non-holds-barred interview on Power 105.1 FM’s The Breakfast Club.
“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 stars in TV One’s highly rated series, Born Again Virgin. 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.
