He's known as the God of Autotune, but T-Pain is a crooner without the extra help. He's delivered some of our favorite hits with the help of autotune, but it's been well-established that T-Pain's natural singing voice doesn't need assistance. He dominated on The Masked Singer and has flexed his R&B stylings when performing live, so it was only a matter of time before we received an album. T-Pain delivered, and he's revisiting classics on his record, On Top Of The Covers. The Nappy Boy Entertainment release is an anticipated arrival as fans are excited to hear the other side of the singer-producer's talents.
On Top Of The Covers features T-Pain's creative take on Sam Cooke's "A Change Is Gonna Come," Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," Dr. Hook's "Sharing The Night Together," Sam Smith's "Stay With Me," Chris Stapleton's "Tennessee Whiskey," Frank Sinatra's "That's Life" ft. NandoSTL (a Nappy Boy Entertainment artist), and Black Sabbath's "War Pigs." Additionally, there is an interlude, "Skrangs" (in K Major Sus).
T-Pain Explains Why He Chose These Tracks
"Each one of these songs means something to me and helped me fall in love with music at different points in my life," the musician said in a press release. "I'm releasing this covers album from the view of what I hear when I listen to each song. I can't wait to share with the world what I've been working on the past several years." Further, he has planned a special weekend in Los Angeles to help celebrate the project.
Today (March 17) through Sunday, T-Pain will perform intimate shows for three nights. He'll take over The Sun Rose at Pendry in West Hollywood for 'An Intimate Evening with T-Pain,' as he and his live band showcase his covers and fan favorites. The carefully curated setlist is a secret as of now, but we're sure T-Pain will share highlights from the event in the days to come.
