Review: Tank Brings Back The Hope In R&B With 'Now Or Never'

A lot of music fans may know Tank thanks to his hit single "Maybe I Deserve" released in 2001. And although he's released a few albums after his debut Force of Nature, Tank has managed to make a name for himself as a really great songwriter and producer but not so much an artist.

After you take a listen to Now or Never, you might just kick yourself for not uncovering the hidden gem known as Tank.

Now or Never stands as Tank's 4th studio album and it is a treat from start to finish. The tracks are grown and sexy and most importantly not too literal. The power of suggestion through the painting of vivid pictures using cool and calculated lyrics is the key on this LP.

Songs like "Scream," "Sex Music, and "Can I" are straight up lovemaking tracks while songs such as "Emergency," "Keep It 100," "Amazing," and "You Mean That Much" shows a woman's worth.

Now or Never is a solid body of work from the underrated artist and proves that there is R&B that still sounds like R&B in the market, you just have to do some digging and chance giving to find it.

Standout Tracks: "Scream," "Can I," "Amazing."
