So, what can we expect from this album? The rapper is rumored to be covering every genre under the sun, including songs from Black Sabbath, Sam Smith, and Journey. “”You’ve been asking for it & hear ya go bro.

The Man Behind The Music

What can’t T-Pain do? From winning Grammy’s, to performing in the Masked Singer, T-Pain’s list of achievements stretches far. Beginning his career in the mid-2000’s, he quickly became a staple in the music industry through his use of autotune, which became his signature sound. The normalization of auto-tune evolved the music world, especially in the hip-hop and R&B genres. T-Pain revolutionized music and carved a name for himself that has lasted for decades.

Since his rise to fame in 2005, T-Pain has produced six studio albums, one compilation album, one soundtrack album, and so much more. You may have caught him in the 7th “Fast & Furious,” or sang along to his hit song, “Buy U a Drank,” when it released in 2007 and topped Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart. He later went on to create a second part to the hit single with Kehlani. This is just one of the many great collaborations T-Pain has partaken in. Others include Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Wiz Khalifa.

After his Masked Singer performance, it’s safe to say that T-Pain’s talent far exceeds the scopes of autotune. It will be interesting to see the rapper pay homage to other artists and genres in his upcoming cover album. So make sure to stream “On Top Of The Covers” when it releases on March 17th!
