Tank will herald “STRONGER” with a pair of eagerly anticipated live performances, beginning June 28th with “Acoustically Speaking,” an intimate night of performances and interviews to be held at the upcoming BET Experience Fan Fest at Los Angeles’ L.A. Live (www.bet.com/shows/bet-awards/bet-experience/fan-fest/acoustically-speaking.html). Tank will then be among the Main Stage superstars at New Orleans’ Essence Music Festival, slated for July 5th. The winner of Tank’s recent “You’re My Star Search” talent contest will join the R&B icon during his set.

Tank is of course one of contemporary R&B/hip-hop’s most honored and enduring superstars, a gifted producer and songwriter as well as extraordinary vocal talent. “STRONGER” follows his acclaimed fifth album, “THIS IS HOW I FEEL,” which exploded onto the #1 spot on Billboard’s “Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums” chart upon its 2012 release, while also debuting among the top 10 on the overall SoundScan/Billboard 200. 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.” For more, please visit http://therealtank.com, twitter.com/therealtank (@therealTank), facebook.com/therealtank, instagram.com/therealtank, youtube.com/therealtank, and www.atlanticrecords.com.
