Tank will be releasing the music video to his song “You’re My Star” soon and HipHollywood got an exclusive set visit to find out more about the singers new direction, music, and thought process.
If you’ve heard the song already, you may have noticed that Michael Jackson’s “This Place Hotel” was used as a sample in beat. Tank explained that he was extra careful with using it the right way and using it to create one of his first up-tempo singles:
“I got this Michael Jackson sample and I got this track and I’m trying to figure out what to do with it, where to go with it. And I’m like ‘Hey lets just write a good song.’ You know, people are already going to be in tune because of the nostalgic appeal of Michael Jackson. How do we make it feel like they might have heard it before, but maybe [they] haven’t? How do we get that moment?”
From the looks of things, our friend Tank did capture the exact look and feeling he was looking for.
