NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 4, 2011) - Atlantic Recording artist Tank proudly announces the exclusive iTunes premiere of his new video for "I Can't Make You Love Me," the latest single from his fourth studio album, "NOW OR NEVER." The clip, directed by Jonathan Mannion, also stars actress Keisha Knight-Pulliam and premieres exclusively on iTunes on February 8th. The video for the cover of Bonnie Raitt's original of the same name will remain exclusive to the music retailer until Valentine's Day and can be found on Tank's iTunes artist page at www.itunes.com/Tank. What's more, Tank is slated to usher in Valentine's Day with a special appearance on BET's 106th & Park (check local listings). The singer's soulful "You Mean That Much" is also included on Atlantic/Elektra's "THE LOVE EP," which arrives at all DSPs on February 8th.

On top of all this, Tank has recently been added to the lineup for this year's Essence Music Festival. In the meantime, last month saw Tank performing in tribute to R&B singer Jamie Foxx at this year's BET Honors airing February 21st (check local listings). Known as one of R&B's most acclaimed singer/songwriters, Tank is preparing to set sail this March as part of the "2011 Tom Joyner Foundation Fantastic Voyage." The luxurious and intimate cruise departs out of Galveston, Texas and will dock in exotic locations like Cozumel, Costa Maya, and Belize. Always one to show his love and appreciation for his loyal fans, Tank introduces "Emergency Time With Tank," an exclusive cruise feature named after his hit single, which will see him accompanying guests to the spa, hosting private album listening sessions, as well as sharing the inspiration for many of his classic tracks.

Adding to this already exciting list, the R&B superstar has been nominated in the "Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals" category at this year's Grammy Awards for "Take My Time (Feat. Tank)," his collaboration with Chris Brown, joining the 8 career nominations he has to date.

With his first full-length collection in three years, "NOW OR NEVER" sees Tank making his most confident musical statement to date. The album, which was released in December, includes the soulful "Amazing" as well as collaborations with Chris Brown ("Foreplay") and Drake ("Celebration") as well as the lead singles "Emergency" and "Sex Music," which have proven to be fan favorites. "NOW OR NEVER," Tank's fourth studio album, was produced by the singer's own production company, Song Dynasty, and is a collection of modern era love songs with a timeless, traditional R&B sound. 

In addition to his own music, Tank has also penned and contributed vocals to hits for the likes of Chris Brown, Jamie Foxx, Keri Hilson and Atlantic labelmate Plies.
