Over a month after releasing the song and the behind-the-scenes footage of the video, R&B crooner Tank finally pulls the wraps off the visuals for “Compliments” from his latest album This Is How I Feel.
Speaking to the Huffington Post about the how the song came about, Tank said “I wanted to make a great R&B song on top of a track that Rick Ross would’ve probably rapped over. We did the original version with just me and my artist, Kris Stephens and then we were like, ‘Ok, now that it’s buzzing out there and people are loving it let’s make it an official single,’ and I was like, ‘If we’re going to do that, let’s just make it an event and throw the Kang [T.I.] on there and let’s just get out of here!’ And we moved forward, called the big homie, got him on there and the rest is sexy history.”
If you ask me (and probably any other male with a pulse), Stephens and all her tiger-striped goodness is easily the most appealing aspect of this Juwan Lee-directed clip. If you’d never heard of her before, this video will ensure that you never forget.
