R&B artist Tank appeared on The Breakfast Club on Tuesday and revealed a hilarious encounter he had with Prince.
“Prince looked at me once and it threw me off,” Tank said on the show. “I didn’t like the way I felt. That’s all I’m gonna say.”
But the hosts, of course, pressed the artist to reveal more about the incident. Tank then proceeded to tell the story, saying he was at a huge party in a fancy hotel when Prince suddenly came in with his entourage and stared him down from a distance.
“He was literally staring at me,” Tank said. “I don’t know if he knows my music. It was my first time ever seeing Prince. I don’t know what it is.”
The “Purple Rain” singer then started walking toward the shocked R&B artist. Prince, according to Tank, gave him another side-eye look before walking past him.
“I just stood there,” Tank said, adding that they didn’t say anything to each other.
