Tank and The Bangas Debut New Single For André 3000’S Birthday

André 3000’s birthday is May 27, to celebrate Tank and the Bangas released their newest single “For Andre” on all major streaming services. I can’t get over how much I love this stick drawing video they used for the music video. Haven’t heard of this band before? Tank and The Bangas won NPR’s Tiny Desk contest in 2017 with their song “Quick.” Bob Boilen, the creator and host of NPR’s All Songs Considered, proclaimed, “This band combines R&B with hip-hop’s poetry and rollercoaster storytelling, with a flair and alchemy that could only come from New Orleans.”

In reference to the song “Andre,” the band exclaimed “We love André 3000. We love Outkast, André has culturally shaped hip-hop in a very unique way from his clothing to his cadence. Tank fell in love with him along with the rest of the world a long time ago. For his birthday, we all thought an ode to him would be the perfect gift.”

Since 2017, the band has toured non-stop, selling out venues both stateside and abroad including festival appearances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, and I saw them at High Sierra Music Festival, Outside Lands and SxSW. The group was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the “10 Artists You Need To Know,” and had a 2020 Grammy-nomination for “Best New Artist.”
