R&B superstar Tank's single, titled "Can't Let It Show" (R&B Money/Atlantic Records), has hit #1 on R&B radio stations around the country after 18 weeks on the charts.

Written and produced by Tank, "Can't Let It Show" samples Kate Bush's 1989 single, "This Woman's Work", which was covered by singer Maxwell in 1997.

"Can't Let It Show" is Tank's fourth consecutive #1 hit, including songs "When We," "Dirty," and "I Don't Think You're Ready” off his wildly successful albums Savage and Elevation, respectively.

Tank was a featured performer this past weekend that kicked off the ESSENCE Festival of Culture Virtual Weekend (June 25 - 27 and July 2-4) celebrating the excellence of the Black community.

Legendary singer/songwriter, Maxwell, celebrated his 25th anniversary album, Urban Hang Suite, with his very good friend Ryan Cameron on Majic 107.5/97.5 radio in Atlanta on Monday.

They discussed what the album meant at that time, and how it inspired the next generation of R&B.

Maxwell explained why he turned down a Verzuz battle against D'Angelo in March.

Maxwell said it "was a question of timing". He was also dealing with the loss of family members to Covid-19.

"I got love for my brothers and I know that the people needed something. I did my best and my best wasn't able to come through in that way," he said.

"So, I couldn't commit to it at the time, but I'm always open to doing anything I can to bring entertainment to the people that I love and respect who have made my life what it is for sure."

Maxwell told Ryan he got the Covid-19 mRNA vaccine the day before the interview and he's still feeling the effects from the shot.

    Zendaya Coleman

    Zendaya was spotted wearing a crushed velvet pantsuit accessorized with a Chanel purse at the Project Runway Fashion Show in New York City. A supermarket on the west coast apologized to the 20-year-old actress after an alleged racial-profiling incident there. Zendaya took to her Instagram account to complain that a salesgirl was rude to her when she tried to buy $400 worth of gift cards. It's common for drug dealers to purchase gift cards by the boatload to launder their ill-gotten proceeds. But of course, Zendaya blamed her skin color: "I don't think she was a huge fan of our skin tone," Zendaya said in the video. "Can't make this shit up. I just can't make this shit up! This is what we deal with," said the biracial star. I wonder what she meant by "we"?
