Having been away from the mainstream most of his career, singer Raheem DeVaughn is an artist that has a very exclusive following. His fans love him for the sexy, yet glorifying way he praises women in many of his songs. He’s managed to work with some of the greatest in hip-hop as the genre has played a huge role in the success of his career, but he’s always remained true to his R&B roots. When Raheem Devaughn stopped in Houston on his Love N’Soul Experience Tour back in November, he sat down with me to share what’s it’s like being in the industry for 10 years, what he’s doing to keep R&B ahead of the game, and how this tour is very special for him.
Tank has been in the music industry for 17 years, writing, producing, and singing. Starting out in the late 90s, Tank wrote many hits for some of your favorite artists before launching his own career and taking the R&B world by storm. He released his latest album earlier this year and it is a follow-up to his earlier hit album Sex, Love & Pain. I had the pleasure of speaking to R&B crooner Tank about his new album Sex, Love, & Pain 2, his tour, family and wearing the many hats of being in the industry.
