Tank and Fantasia

  • Tank and Fantasia

8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $62.


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.


Help to Keep Great Journalism Alive in Arkansas

Arkansas Times needs to raise $25,000 to help fund our new agriculture and environment reporter, who comes to us with help from Report For America. Without a dedicated agriculture reporter, the stories of our state’s primary industry and its 243,000 workers remain untold. This isn’t just about news—it’s about recognizing the backbone of Arkansas’s economy. Every dollar you donate helps us reach our goal and keeps agriculture at the forefront of our community conversation. Act now; the stories of 19 million acres of forest and countless hardworking Arkansans depend on it.
