Tantan B – “Die For Love” single featuring Alvin D
“Baby girl, the way you got me feeling, swear to God I can’t deny it. Girl, you got me falling for ya. Something ‘bout the way that you do. Girl, you got me feeling cool. All around searching for you, and I want to go to your mama and tell her my plans. Visit your papa, tell him I’m the man. Girl, I wanna be there for you. You should lemme love you. Lemme be the one to. I’ll never hurt you, I’m in love with you.” – lyrics
‘Die For Love’ tells a charming tale about a young guy who is head-over-heels in love with his significant other. Apparently, she’s desirably appealing, and an asset to have. Therefore, he admits that he wouldn’t mind dying for her love.
‘Die For Love’ contains a relationship-based narrative, ear-pleasing vocals, and tuneful melodies that will resonate well with fans of Flex. The LiL J-produced tune possesses rhythmic instrumentation flavored with a warm Afro-pop aroma. Furthermore, “Die For Love” serves as a tasty appetizer of what listeners can expect to hear on TanTan B’s upcoming album. The project is expected to have a few international collaborations including African and US-based artists.
“I want to die for you. Baby, let me die for you.”
“The profession of true undying love transcends just speaking it, like the likes of Jack and Rose. If you honestly can’t live without such a love, why not die for it? The song speaks of going to whatever extend to keep the one we love satisfied, even if it means giving our last breath.” – Tantan B stated
TanTan B has continually shown his deep passion for youth empowerment, knowledge transfer, and training. He uses music and the creative arts as tools to empower his peers and Liberian youth. He attributes his love for music to his parents, who he claims introduced him to music at an early age. Also, he grew up listening to legends like Nat King Cole, Harry Belafonte, and Louis Armstrong (Satchmo). During that time, he mimicked dance moves and songs by Michael Jackson, MC Hammer, Run DMC, and LL Cool J.
In 2014, TanTan formed Black Entertainment with his friend, Rodney Tweh. His sole purpose was to discover fresh talent and give them a platform to develop because the studios were busy working with mainstream Liberian artists. TanTan would go on to recruit underground talents like Sahr Boakai (alias Speedo’o, Lib’s fastest rapper), Maurice Terziq Gayflor (alias The C.I.C.), Bassa vernacular rapper, Dennis Ben (alias Fullest 4), Othniel Matthews (alias Bliss Melo). Also, Liberian singer/actor, Jessica Singh, was brought to the Liberian music scene by the video premiere of her debut single, entitled, “Complexion Thing,” featuring TanTan B.

TanTan B seeks to teach the youth that passion and education can indeed go hand-in-hand, rather than one without the other. Not too long ago, he acquired a Master’s Degree in International Marketing, while pursuing his passion for music.
TanTan’s goal is to carry out fundraising projects that will enable young people with a passion for music. Also, he wants to provide creative arts funding to assist them with their projects. As well as organizing more training workshops and seminars, both locally and internationally. Thus giving Liberian youth the opportunity and exposure to better improve their skills.
