VIDEO: Tank and the Bangas are joined by Questlove on their new single "Why Try"

via YouTube

Tank and the Bangas have shared a new single from the upcoming album Red Balloon. The new song, titled "Why Try" features The Roots drummer and Academy award-winning director Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson. The song follows the release of "No ID," "Black Folk," and "Stolen Fruit," and arrived with a new music video.

“A lot of women forget that power comes from vulnerability and being very completely honest with your partner instead of putting on a front,” Tarriona "Tank" Ball said in a statement. “On ‘Why Try’, we have a vulnerable woman who isn’t afraid to say, ‘I like you and you’re not giving me the same energy back. I know you like me, too.’”

Red Balloon is set to be released on May 13. Watch the new video for "Why Try" below.
