Tank fans beware, this post is not going to make your day merry or bright. One-third of TGT and the falsetto crooner who brought us hits like “Maybe I Deserve” appears to be completely done with the music industry. It’s hard to know how good Tank will make on the disheartened threat he posted on Instragram this afternoon, lamenting the lack of support for his latest solo project “Stronger,” but one thing’s for sure, he is completely in his feelings about the lack of success of his latest venture.
Posting a photo of him laying in bed, with his shirt off of course, and his hands on his head appearing a bit downtrodden, Tank wrote:
Whether you’re a hardcore Tank fan or not, you can’t deny the brother, who by the way seemed to be the only talented glue holding TGT together, does have a point. Everybody knows the industry — and very few consumers — are interested in supporting true artistry these days, which makes it difficult for entertainers to continue to flourish with their craft, particularly financially. “Stronger,” which was released August 12, sold 16,000 copies in its first week, landing at number 13 on the Billboard 200 chart. In its second week, sales dropped to just 6,000 copies. So yes, Tank is understandably having a moment. What remains unclear is how long that moment will last.
Will you miss Tank if he never puts out another album?
