Tank kicks off the “Year of R&B” with his new song “Next Breath,” the second single lifted from his upcoming album Savior. It was written by Kevin McCall and produced by Black Keyz, The Composer and Tank himself.
The emotional vulnerable tune doesn’t veer far from Tank’s usual formula: a piano-driven production, expressive vocals and passionate lyrics.
I don’t think I’ve ever, ever really told you, how much I need you.
Girl I need you more, than my next breath.
Never, will I ever leave you, ‘cause darling I need you.
I need you more, than the next breath I breathe.
Although a number of R&B releases were made in the past two years, including Tank’s Now or Never, people will continue to make the inaccurate assumption that R&B is dead or a thing of the past. If you truly miss meaningful songs achieving mainstream success, purchase “Next Breath” on iTunes.
