Throwback to T-Pain's early days, collaborating with Lil Wayne, Chris Brown and more on various singles.
If there was one voice that dominated 2005-2010 radio, it was T-Pain's. His auto-tuned croon earned him spots on Billboard charts and guest features on everybody's albums.
The platinum single "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)" came out in 2005 and was infectious. You couldn't go anywhere without hearing the R&B/pop hit. After a slow 2006, T-Pain had an extraordinary run in 2007, with twelve charting singles to his name in that year alone. A few of those, "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')," "Kiss Kiss," and "Low" were number one singles overall. His album from that year, Epiphany, is certified gold.
Tallahassee, Florida doesn't have a lot of boasting to do in the music industry. Only a couple of big time artists have ever come from there. T-Pain put the city on the map with his run of early singles, which we're revisiting today for our Throwback Thursday.
