T-Pain Minus Autotune Is…Really Good!
T-Pain is more than just The Autotune Guy, and he proves it in this Tiny Desk Concert from NPR Music. Even though he’s singing songs called “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)” and “Up Down (Do This All Day),” there’s a sweet and soulful nature to T-Pain’s voice that we haven’t heard before. With a simple keyboard accompaniment, the set has a classic, smooth R&B vibe that wouldn’t seem out of place in a Los Feliz coffee house.
How did we not notice that his voice was this good the whole time? I guess it’s tough to focus when Kanye’s telling us to throw our hands up in the sky.
