This, ladies and gentlemen, will be one for the lovers, an evening of steamy R&B from these big-time co-headliners.
Tank started off as a background singer for Ginuwine (and is also in super group TGT with Ginuwine and Tyrese Gibson), but has since emerged as an R&B force in his own right, earning four Grammy nominations and several top 10 singles. Sample lyrics from his leave-little-to-the-imagination slow jam "Sex Music," which hit No. 20 on the Hot Adult R&B chart last year: "We don't need no clothes for this / Baby on the floor for this / All up on the pole for this / Dropping down low for this."
Fantasia, of course, was the season three winner of "American Idol" and has gone on to release several hit singles and albums, earning three Grammy nods in 2008 and a win last year for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. She's fresh off a very well-received performance at the 2011 Essence Music Festival in Los Angeles.
Gentlemen: your special lady deserves a special evening. You know what to do.
