T-Pain Feat. Lil Yachty
T-Pain, perhaps the most important figure in the history of auto-tune, has joined forces with Lil Yachty, who is using the tool most effectively among just about everyone in the new school. Their new collaboration is named after social media legend and cameo king Dan Bilzerian. You'd have to be a real curmudgeon (or broke boi) to deny the uplifting power of this one.
Close To You (Remix)
Dreezy Feat. Rick Ross & T-Pain
UPDATE: The official CDQ version of the "Close to You" remix is now available. Dreezy tapped T-Pain for the original single, off her July album, No Hard Feelings, and Rick Ross adds a verse to the remix. The song is produced by Rance of 1500 Or Nothin' and Terrace Martin.
Close To You
Dreezy Feat. T-Pain
Chicago's Dreezy has remained relatively quiet since the new year, but she's picking up speed once again. Last week we got something more trap or street-oriented with the Gucci Mane-featured banger "We Gon Ride." For those unfamiliar with Dreezy, just know that she is not a one-trick pony. On top of spitting bars, she's also a very talented singer. On the Zane Lowe premiere of "Close To You," we get to hear the latter side of Dreezy.
Bring It Back
Chris Brown Feat. T-Pain
After a minor private jet snafu, Chris Brown made it safely to Cannes Film Festival this morning. He celebrates by releasing a new banger with T-Pain called "Bring it Back."
What Would You Do?
DJ Entice Feat. Busta Rhymes, O.T. Genasis, T-Pain & Ace Hood
Miami’s DJ Entice decides to round up the star-studded line up of O.T. Genasis, Busta Rhymes, T-Pain, & Ace Hood for this new posse cut called “What Would You Do?”, and we’re more than happy to premiere it for y’all this evening.
T-Pain Feat. Young Cash
Desiigner’s hit single “Panda” currently sits at #2 on the Billboard 100 charts, and is unsurprisingly one of the most duplicated instrumentals in the game right now, just ask Kanye West. With everyone from Dave East, Meek Mill, & Joell Ortzi taking stabs at the hard-hittin' Menace-produced beat, we now have another version for y’all this morning coming from T-Pain which we’re happy to premiere for ya.
Look At Me
Teddy Pinderassdown's Stoicville: The Phoenix may well be the hottest album to come out in 2016 before it's all said and done.
Hundred Mo Dolla$
Teddy Pinderassdown still hasn't given a release date for Stoicville: The Phoenix, but at least he's giving us new music. This afternoon he releases a new song called "Hundred Mo Dolla$" in an HNHH premiere. Produced by DJ Spinz and T-Pain himself, "Hundred Mo Dolla$" sounds a lot like Epiphany-era T-Pain, with the addition of Spinz' trunk-rattling 808s. The song is about Pain's relationship with the club, which is a continual drain on his cash reserves.
DJ Outta Space Feat. T-Pain & Kris J
808 Mafia's DJ Outta Space new mixtape F.A.C.T.S. (Few Are Chosen To Succeed) features plenty of names we already know well, rappers like like 2 Chainz, Flocka, & Big K.R.I.T. It also features some lesser-known names, like Kris J -- not Kris Jenner's rapper moniker but rather a 25-year-old Georgia rapper fresh out of Bethune-Cookman University.
A few weeks before Christmas, Teddy Penderassdown debuted a new song called "Officially Yours" at his NPR Front Row Concert -- an instant classic through and through. This morning, the Tallahassee crooner shares "Officially Yours" as his latest single.
Do Dat Shit
It's been a minute since we've heard from T-Pain. The singer had a 'comeback' of sorts in 2015, not that he had left the music scene, but his career was reinvigorated, thanks to his Gangtsa Grillz mixtape and that infamous Tiny Desk performance for NPR, which reminded basically everyone that, hey, T-Pain can sing.
T-Pain Feat. Plies
Of course T-Pain is the first (but definitely not the last) person to open a song with a "Netflix and chill' joke. The singer's new record "Or Wut" is a classic slow jam, built off of a simple guitar-led chord progression. Pain keeps it pretty light on the auto-tune, and gets Plies to come through for a typically filthy verse.
Whatever I Want
Classixx Feat. T-Pain
While we wait on T-Pain's first album since 2011, the much-anticipated Stoicville: The Phoenix, the rappa-ternt-sanga has popped up on an unexpected collab with Classixx, the L.A. production duo usually known for Italo disco-inspired electronic jams. "Whatever I Want" was premiered today by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio, and the track also happens to feature backing vocals from the Los Angeles Children's Choir.
DJ Montay & DJ Jelly Feat. The-Dream, T-Pain & Twista
DJ Montay and DJ Jelly have curated an all-star lineup for a triumphant new R&B anthem, "6 Minutes." The title refers to the amount of time that it takes each one of these artists to get your girl into the bedroom. The seemingly random increment of time does not relate to the song's length, 4 minutes and 25 seconds.
Roof On Fye
T-Pain continues to prove that he's nowhere close to hanging up the mic (or the auto-tune). He's made a big comeback in 2015, and his newest, "Roof on Fye," is one of the best he's dropped this year.
I Can Be Your Stripper
Shanell Feat. T-Pain
Shanell has been signed to Young Money forever, and the imprint's inevitable split from Cash Money will probably be a boon to her career. Until Lil Wayne and Birdman duke it out in court, Shanell proceeds as usual by dropping a remix to her recent single "I Can Be Your Stripper," this time bringing in T-Pain to bless the track with his inimitable soaring auto-tune.
Make That Shit Work
T-Pain Feat. Juicy J
T-Pain built up quite a bit of excitement with his recent Gangsta Grillz mixtape The Iron Way (you can grab the no DJ version here if you need it), and he returns today with a new single off his fifth studio album Stoicville: The Phoenix. T-Pain has already released a few singles off the long-awaited album in the past, so it's unclear if those are being sidestepped as this is being dubbed the official first single.
Lil Jon Feat. T-Pain, Problem & Snoop Dogg
Lil Jon returned in a huge way last summer when he supplied the vocals to one of the year's biggest hits (and mantras), "Turn Down For What". Looks like the crunk king might be ready to shit down yet another summer, unleashing his new crew track, "Cutie Pie" today, in which he seamlessly melds pop-rap heroes from different eras into a slippery funk ballad.
Mind Right (Remix)
TK N Cash Feat. B.o.B, T-Pain & T.I.
TK N Cash's "Mind Right" has been a buzzing party track in ATL since the end of last year, and it continues to pick up speed with a succession of hot remixes. First, T.I. laid a freestyle over the track, then B.o.B. gave it the remix duties. Now, those guys have joined forces and another boss man, T-Pain, has joined the lineup for the most official "Mind Right" remix yet.
Kill These Niggas
T-Pain just dropped a No DJ version of his epic mixtape The Iron Way, and that's cause for celebration. The No DJ version of "Kill These Niggas," for example, is a catchy track that's just an all-around better listening experience without DJ Drama chirping in the middle of T-Pain's verse.
