T-Pain to release his new album rEVOLVEr on December 2011
Thursday, November 3rd, 2011
T-Pain announced earlier this week that he will release his fourth studio album rEVOLVEr on December 2011. The follow-up to his 2008 platinum-plus selling album Thr33 Ringz, rEVOLVEr, demonstrates the evolution of T-Pain as an artist.
“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,” says the singer.
“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.”
It’s evident T-Pain has another hit on his hands with the album’s second single, “5 O’Clock,” which is currently Billboard’s Hot 100 Greatest Gainer, jumping from #62 to #25 in its third week on the charts.
Tallahassee, Florida native, T-Pain burst on the scene in 2005 with his debut Rappa Ternt Sanga and the unforgettable singles “I’m Sprung” and “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper),” a song that maintains the title of the highest selling ring tone.
T-Pain continued his success with his sophomore effort Epiphany in 2007, which spawned the #1 airplay record of the year, “Buy U a Drank” (featuring Yung Joc) and the ubiquitous #1 hit “Bartender.”
In 2008, T-Pain took home his first Grammy for Best Rap Song (for “Good Life”) with Kanye West, which also garnered a BET Award, where he was the most nominated artist of the night.
Since the release of his debut album, T-Pain has produced and featured on over 45 top ten songs and 16 #1′s.
He has won many awards including two Grammys and continues to expand his brand with fresh and exciting ideas like the innovative I Am T-Pain mobile app, which has now spawned the I Am T-Pain Mic and T-Pain Effect.
