Grammy-winning singer T-Pain has explained why he decided to limit the number of guest features on his upcoming RevolveR album and what he hopes to gain with his Thr33 Ringz follow-up.
T-Pain wants to prove that he can stand alone as an artist.
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 recently said a collaboration with country singer Carrie Underwood was vital.
“It’s fun to work with Slash,” T-Pain said in an interview earlier this year, “but kind of embarrassing because no one knows who I am. But, I think it’s cool as f*ck. Next person I want to work with, and I won’t work with anyone else until I get her, is Carrie Underwood. Everyone else can suck it until I get to Carrie.” (The Boom Box)
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.” (Access Vibe)
