R&B superstar Tank has been celebrating his newest accomplishment with the success of his single “When We” being officially certified gold by the RIAA.
On Saturday (Feb. 17) in front of screaming fans during the “Ladies Night R&B Super Jam” at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, “Power” star Omari Hardwick presented Tank with his plaque on stage.
“When We” secured the #1 spot for 11 weeks on the Billboard Adult R&B Song and UAC Radio charts. Featured on his latest album Savage, “When We” is the only core R&B record to crack the Billboard Hot 100 and is steadling climbing the Urban Mainstream Radio chart.
A very humbled Tank thanked his team, label, family and most importantly his fans. “What a night!,” he wrote on Instagram. “1. My brotha @omarihardwickofficial presented this gold plaque to me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love u bro! 2. My team helped me reach gold and set this all up without me knowing! You’re amazing and I am blessed to have you! Love! 3. My lady got to see first hand that all this savage sexuality I promote is real! She reaped the benefits later..?. Love u fiancée.. To all of the fans out there thank you for giving r&b a chance! The kind of r&b that makes you feel something. The kind of r&b that makes you wanna do something. The kind of r&b i love! Lets keep going and make this kind of r&b mainstream again! Love you!”
This comes on the heels of the release of the “When We (Remix)” featuring Trey Songz and Ty Dolla $ign. Check out the footage below.
