Tank enlists Trey Songs & Ty Dolla $ign for ‘When We’ remix

If you’re someone who knows what’s going on in the world of R&B these days, you know that rap culture has a totalitarian influence on it.

Listen to R&B singer Tank’s remix of his standout record from his latest album: Savage. It features Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign.

If you’re someone who knows what’s going on in the world of R&B these days, you know that rap culture has a totalitarian influence on it. Once thought to be polished musicians with tastefully-placed sexual suggestions, R&B singers now croon and yodel vulgar lyrics like a rapper. In the nineties and early 00s, it wasn’t like the music of Teddy Pendergrass and them, but it was nowhere as wild as it is today. What I will say is that we are missing the bedtime-appropriate music to encourage millennials to have children in their lifetime.

Personally, I didn’t enjoy the “Savage” LP as a whole, but it brought us the sensual “When We”. Moreover, the song gets three singers from three different times in music to say their piece. I think it is genius.

Hear the remake of Tank’s “When We” record. It features Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign. Do you think it is a coincidence all of their names begin with the letter ‘T’?
