AMP Music Minute: Lil Wayne Plans to Retire At 35, Kanye Teases G.O.O.D. Music Album, and T-Pain’s Album Gets Due Date (page 3)
After some delay, T-Pain’s fourth and latest album rEVOLVEr has been finished, submitted, and now has a release date. Expect to see the many faces of Teddy P on December 6th.
The follow up to his platinum album Thr33 Ringz, which featured hits “Freeze” with [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chris Brown[/lastfm] and slow jam “Can’t Believe It” featured [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]. But even that success is not enough for T-Pain. In this album he hopes to show his development as an artist and overall growth as a person. He says the title rEVOLVEr is said to “demonstrate the evolution of T-Pain as an artist.”
T-Pain recycled some of his old work, retouching it for his current audience, “rEVOLVEr is drawn from seven albums’ worth of material,” said T-Pain. “There are so many different things on this album. I couldn’t settle on what I wanted to include, but the final result I think will really hit all of my fans and different audiences.”
But don’t get too antsy yet, the Nappy Boy of Nappy Boy Productions wants to keep everyone happy and promises to keep his signature sound in tact, despite his growing fan base,”I’ve developed a new audience from the Taylor Swift stuff, the Bud Light and Toshiba commercials, the T-Pain Mic and App. There is music for everyone on this album, but definitely still classic T-Pain at the same time.”
Lead singles from the album include “Best Love Song” featuring his pretty boy counter part, Chris Brown and the radio smash, “5 o’Clock” featuring [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lily Allen[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Wiz Khalifa[/lastfm]. If these tracks are any indication of the full album, then count me in.
Think about it as a holiday gift, I’m just saying. Have one on me, it’s “5 o’Clock” somewhere…
