Tank and the Bangas shared a new single, “Why Try,” featuring Questlove. The song will appear on the New Orleans-based group’s upcoming album, Red Balloon, arriving via Verve Forecast on May 13.

Tank and The Bangas heralded Red Balloon in January with the single “No ID.” February saw the band led by Tarriona “Tank” Ball releasing “Black Folk” featuring Alex Isley and Masego, and “Stolen Fruit” in honor of Black History Month. Tank and The Bangas now follow with “Why Try” featuring Questlove.

“A lot of women forget that power comes from vulnerability and being very completely honest with your partner instead of putting on a front,” Ball said of the new single. “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.’”

“Why Try” arrived with a music video, introduced by Questo. Watch it below:
