[VIDEO] Singer Tank says he's losing his hearing 'out of nowhere'

R&B singer-songwriter Tank announced on Instagram this week that he is slowly losing his hearing.

In a brief video shared on Wednesday, Tank, whose real name is Durrell Artaze Babbs, said that he is going "completely deaf" in his right ear and "kind of losing sound" in his left, along with some other symptoms.

"I'm dizzy, can't walk a straight line, all of this out of nowhere, don't know how or why," he said, noting that he was seeing doctors and had recently had an MRI. "...But, you know, it still hasn't given me a reason to give up. It still hasn't given me a reason to stop feeling like I can do and be everything that I've set out to be. The goals are still the same: To be great, to be the greatest."

"I want to say that to you too: No matter what you’re going through, no matter where you find yourself, whether your body’s failing you, whether your mind is failing you, whether your spirit is failing you, keep going, keep pushing," he continued.

Tank said in the video that he would document the process "just to show (fans) the fight," and on Thursday, he shared another short video.

In the three-minute video, the "You Don't Know" singer said that after undergoing an MRI, his doctor didn't "see anything crazy in terms of brain function," which he said was a "good" thing.
