NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 25, 2016) – Singer/songwriter and national pop/AC recording artist Brooklyn Tankard [Thicker Than Water’s “Queen Brooklyn” (Bravo TV)] has announced the release of her debut single “When I’m Gone.”
With the enlisted help of Grammy award winning producer Blac Elvis Williams and co-writer Tenesha Blacks (both of whom have worked alongside platinum recording artists such as Beyoncé, Destiny Child, Patti Labelle, Charlie Williams and many more), the contemporary, energetic track shares a hard and fast “so long, see ya, goodbye” sentiment.
“It’s just a woman saying: Look… Hey… I’ve been putting up with your mess and your games. What you gonna do about it when I’m gone? Deuces! I ain’t sticking around for this’,” said Queen Brooklyn (“QB”).
WE BEEN HERE BEFORE
NOTHING YOU DO EVER CHANGES HEY
IT'S LIKE YOUR MIND IS ALWAYS PROGRAMMED
TO KEEP PLAYIN ALL THESE GAMES AND
MY HEART CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE OF IT BOY AND
I'M RUNNING OUT OF PATIENCE
YOU TALK A GOOD ONE BUT YOUR WORDS DON'T MEAN NOTHING
NO EASY WAY TO SAY IT
WHEN IM GONE BOY IM GONE
MOVING ON SO SO LONG
HOLDIN ON FOR TOO LONG
WHEN I'M GONE BOY I'M GONE
A featured track from her upcoming CD I AM ROYALTY (anticipated in late August 2016/Inspire Higher Music Group), the single offers fans and music lovers an early taste of what listeners can expect to hear from the ten-track project loaded with self-penned originals. QB will officially introduce the single to television audiences across the country next Sunday, June 5, 2016 during the Thicker Than Water season finale (7PM Central/8PM Eastern). The episode storyline captures QB’s performance (an energetic fusion of pop & dance) at a listening party were she proudly delivers the sultry and powerful woman empowerment anthem.

"It feels so good to be doing what I love, in the studio recording, singing, acting in films and introducing another side of myself to my fans—my creative side,” added QB. “I’m truly moved and motivated by the early reaction to my music.”
QB spent much of her childhood and teen years appearing in theatrical productions, singing in choirs and girls groups as well as playing various instruments. She revisits and revives her passion to create and write music as a compliment to her acting career in major made-for-television film projects.
