Grammy-winning singer T-Pain said he is looking to take a more experimental approach on his forthcoming solo album RevolveR.
According to Pain, he often gets overlooked for the accomplishments made within music.
"It's definitely something different for me," Pain said in an interview about his new release. "It's something new that I haven't really touched. I went more towards what I've been trying to do, and figured people wouldn't accept yet. I mean it's kinda hard for people to accept what I'm doing you know what I'm saying? I don't know why. If I do a song, and then somebody else does the exact same song, [critics] like the other person's song before mine's for some reason, I have no idea why. It's been that way for a long time."

Along with a "new" sound, Pain recently said he would limit the amount of guest features to prove his own talent.
The album features some of his familiar hallmarks: Auto-Tune and "a lot of sex and alcohol. That's a main topic," he said."I had to slow down on guest appearances, because a lot of people were saying that Thr33 Ringz was only as good as it was because it had a lot of people on there. I just wanted to prove some people wrong. I wanted to test myself to see if that was the case. It was so many people on the last album, it should have been a DJ Khaled album." (MTV)
Based on a Pain interview from earlier this month, the album will drop in April.
T-Pain also shed some light on the progress of his latest album "RevolveR," commenting that physical recording wrapped up last Wednesday (March 3) and that the project was now in its mixing and mastering phase. The album, T-Pain says, should be out some time in April. (Billboard)
He currently oversees the operations of Nappy Boy Entertainment.
"Nappy Boy, it's 2000-and-win we're in right now, we're making the movement known, doing it quietly," Pain said in an interview. "Letting everybody know when we come it's gonna be a big blast, it ain't gonna be like, 'Oh they hot, oh they're getting even hotter,' it ain't gonna be like that, it's gonna be like 'Wow, they super hot!' Nappy Boy Digital is a digital company, basically based on the Internet, it's on iTunes and not really a physical company, you know what I'm saying? A lot of people are pressing up all these CDs and pressing up all these extra jewel cases and the inserts and and all that stuff and then everybody's buying the stuff on the Internet so it's not making them any money, they losing money, so, Nappy Boy Digital is my digital company, it's all Internet and that's just how we go."
