R&B veteran Tank is ready to return with new music to follow up 2019’s Elevation.

On Tuesday, the singer shared an Instagram video to preview his new single, “Can’t Let It Show.”

“Real [music] coming through. Step aside. Nothing personal,” wrote Tank in the post’s caption, while playing the song in the background.

Based on the video, “Can’t Let It Show” features Tank singing a sample from Maxwell‘s 2001 classic, “This Woman’s Work.” 

“That’s enough,” said Tank before abruptly stopping the music. “Look, if you dropping some R&B on Friday, push that [ish] back. Push that [ish] back. It’s gon get smoky on Friday. If you are not crying your heart out to that woman, if you are not putting it all on the line, this Friday and you dropping…on the Friday I’m dropping, don’t do it.”

Tank previously hinted at a song from his upcoming album last November, which he predicted will be his next hit single.

“This is going to be a #1 record,” said Tank in an interview with music journalist Bobby Pen. This is going to be a platinum-selling single for sure. It might even make the album go platinum.”

Stay tuned for Tank’s new single “Can’t Let It Show” dropping Friday.
