Grammy winning singer T-Pain has reportedly chosen country superstar Tim McGraw for an upcoming collaboration.
According to E! Online, Pain will aim to introduce hip-hop and R&B fans to a new sound of music as the two performers prepare to work together for a song.
"We talked about getting in the studio together, so that's probably going to happen soon," Pain told E! "I definitely think we could do something cool and different."
Known for working with a wide variety of acts, Pain's choice to step behind the mic with McGraw comes from his desire to place more emphasis on the country aspect of a collaboration record.
"The hip-hop has been done with Tim and Nelly," Pain added, "so we gotta be more country than hip-hop."
In related news, Chris Brown recently confirmed reports that he's experimenting with country music on McGraw's upcoming song called "Human."
"It's incredible," Brown told Billboard. "I wanted to do something more along the country line. That's a bigger audience for me."
