ELEVATION marks Tank’s first new LP since 2017’s SAVAGE, highlighted by the RIAA platinum-certified blockbuster, “When We.” The single – which marked the only core R&B record to crack Billboard’s “Hot 100” in 2018 – spent 13 weeks atop the Billboard and Mediabase Urban AC charts, ultimately being named as both outlets’ #1 Adult R&B Song of 2018 while also earning a nomination as iHeart Radio’s “R&B Song of the Year.” In addition, the official “When We” companion video now boasts over 101 million individual views via YouTube alone HERE.
