R&B singer, songwriter and producer Tank has never been shy when it comes to sex or being sexy. Whether he’s baring his perfectly chiseled torso during a performance or engaging the fantasies of millions of fans through sexually-explicit lyrics, the DMV-native knows how to get things poppin’ in that area. Just when we thought his irresistibly raunchy single “When We” couldn’t get any sexier, he not only solicits the help of fellow sex-stars Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign, he gives fans another round with an equally provocative video.
In the J Valentine and BenMarc-directed visual, we see the tantalizing trio decked out as auto mechanics. Providing a bit of eye-candy for the fellas, two scantily-clad ladies approach obviously wanting a bit more than a tune-up. Known for always giving the ladies what they want, we soon see Trey and his seductress engaged in a steamy scene involving a motorcycle, while Tank sensually sizes up his lady on the hood of a car. L.A.’s “zaddy” Ty Dolla $ign does what he does best and performs most of his verse in a car smoking a J with his boo.
Though we haven’t seen this type of in-your-face approach to R&B in a while, we’d expect nothing less from Tank and his slick-talkin’ companions. Last year, after dropping the original version of the track in advance of his aptly titled album Savage, he noted that “the song is meant to fill the gap left in R&B, a return to its pure sound. It's kinda what we're, you know, what we're missing. You know, being sexy I think has taken a backseat to, I guess, shock value in a sense." We are appreciative of the fellas for giving us exactly what we’ve been missing.
Watch Tank and the fellas in the video for the remix of his sultry track “When We” and add the song to your boo-lovin’ playlist. Bouncers in Charlotte; Tulsa; Philly; Irving, Texas; Jackson, Tennessee and Orlando can purchase tickets on his website to catch Tank in all of his chiseled and chocolate goodness at his live shows in April.
