GRAMMY award-winning, nine-time nominee, and platinum-selling singer Tank joined Audacy's Big Tigger Morning Show ahead of the release of his tenth and final studio album, R&B Money, to discuss his newest tracks, future label plans, and more.

Milwaukee-born artist and actor Tank, real name Durell Babbs, dropped what he's calling his final album on August 19, R&B Money, which features collaborations with Chris Brown, Rotimi, Vedo, Blaq Tuxedo, TVERSE, Alex Isley, and artist Feather. Fans have already gravitated toward the chart-topping singles "Can't Let It Show," "I Deserve," and the sultry hit "Slow" featuring J. Valentine, currently surging up the R&B charts.

Although he'll no longer be booking studio time for himself after this release, that doesn't me he's not going to have a hand in plenty of future music. "It's an exciting time," Tank tells Big Tigger. "We're moving into this label role; working on this partnership with Atlantic Records to build the R&B label, R&B Money -- the only true R&B label -- that's all we're gonna do. We're artists, songwriters, producers -- we gotta build this thing."

"Everybody wants to start moving into new spaces when it's been dried up," Tank adds, "but while I still have a platform, and while my name still means something, while they're still taking my phone calls, I want to use that to build the next army of R&B everything."

Aside from the new record, Tank managed to strike a deal placing his entire back catalog online for fans to now stream to their heart's content. "It's all lined up so perfectly," Tank says. "Now people can go get their full history, I did;t just come out in 2010. I came out in 2000, you know what I'm saying? I'm really old," he says with a laugh.
