“R&B Money is a labor of love to my fans and to the genre of R&B. This is who I am! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for artists like Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Keith Sweat, Al Green, and my fans who inspire me every day to make music,” said Tank. “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 and J.Valentine will also release their “R&B Money” podcast through iHeart Radio and Charlamagne the God’s Black Effect Podcast Network and will kick it off with Jamie Foxx. In this podcast, both artists will include content on celebrating R&B culture by highlighting artists Marvin Gaye and Pink Sweat$
