Sometimes I get to write headlines that make my own head spin. This is one of those times. In the most unlikely of scenarios, which proves that we live in a broken simulation, Dillon Francis is teaming up with T-Pain for a new single that will be featured in The Lego Movie 2. T-Pain made
Dillon Francis has rapidly expanded his production portfolio in his move to being an independent artist and dabbling in Latin music that ultimately led to a Latin Grammy nomination. T-Pain has actively expressed his desire to collaborate with more EDM producers on his social media channels. The two have come together synchronously in the name of Lego, creating a track for the upcoming movie sequel due on February 8.
Aptly titled “Catchy Song,” the tune shows that the meta humor from the first LEGO Movie will still be highly present in the next edition. The A-list collaborators certainly created something infectious, mixing together T-Pain’s signature auto tune with Daft Punk-inspired funk elements and hilarious lyrics that advise “This song is catchy” and that it’s “gonna get stuck inside your head.” That Girl Lay Lay provides her own rich verse, making one wonder how deep the lyrics are actually meant to be.
Just this week, Electric Forest finally released their full lineup. The festival also explained its decision to scale down to take place over only one weekend in 2019. The lineup was the perfect example of what Forest has become synonymous with – quality electronic music, some of the best jam and funk in the world,
T-Pain is creating a new album and wants to modernize his sound, so the auto-tuned voice of a generation took to Twitter to find himself a future bass producer. The hip-hop artist recently released a compilation mixtape, Everything Must GoVol. 2.
Man. I need some future bass on this new album. Who do I need to holler at?
This, of course, caused a stir of responses from big hitters who’ve dabbled in future bass production such as Whethan, TroyBoi, Giraffage, and more. ETC!ETC! offered to produce a moombahton track on his behalf, and San Holo looked inward for spiritual guidance.
Teddy Pain later clarified, giving an example of Louis The Child to which the duo from Chicago expressed interested in collaborating.
Louis The Child – It’s Strange feat. K.Flay https://t.co/BbxUc2iqrz via @YouTube I want some shit like this drop. That shit that’s right behind the pocket, synth is side chained to hell, drums punching you in the goddamn chest, but with church chords.
“Let You Down” begins with plaintive minor-key piano chords and a trembling vocal run through that omnipresent chipmunk effect, the wildly popular pitched-up modulation that makes the human voice sound slightly alien. The singer intones, “All these voices in my head get loud/ I wish that I could shut them out/ I’m sorry that I … More »
A version of Post Malone’s inescapable hit “Rockstar” featuring Joey Bada$$ and T-Pain leaked this week. According to Bada$$ and T-Pain, the track isn’t a remix, but the original version of the single. More »
Diplo recently shared his best Kanye West story in a new TBS Storyville special. The clip offers a look into West’s Watch The Throne sessions where Ye and Jay-Z reportedly rented out the Mercer Hotel out in New York.
“Because that’s what you do when you’re Kanye West,” the producer proclaimed.
Despite knowing Ye for near 20 years, in the clip, Diplo recalls one of his most memorable run-ins with the artist. After getting a text from West to come down to the Mercer, he sat Diplo down with another producer to co-produce a song. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen stopped by, T-Pain dropped in, and Kim Kardashian — who Ye had yet to marry at the time — also made an appearance.
And while Diplo didn’t make the final cut of the album, he did witness something pretty spectacular before he left. “Kanye came back, he opens the door… and he says, ‘Guys, I’m gonna marry Kim Kardashian, I’m gonna be president one day, and I’m gonna be a fashion designer.’” So far, two out of three have come true. If things go as planned it seems Kanye may have a predilection for telling the future…
T-Pain’s record label Nappy Boy Entertainment is reportedly suing Universal Music Group’s Cash Money Records for unpaid royalties, specifically from Lil Wayne’s albums Tha Carter III (2008) and Tha Carter IV (2011). According to TMZ, T-Pain claims that he and Nappy Boy signee Young Fyre are owed more than $500,000 for their work … More »
T-Pain has become yet another auto-tuned pop icon to enter into the EDM world, joining peers like Akon, Lil’ Jon, and more. This time, the “I’m Sprung” singer provided unreleased vocals for songs titled “Do Wrong” and In The Air” to the fledlging imprint Dubset for a plethora of established bass acts to work them into a raucous mixture of tracks that will please the entirety of their intended audience.
Bad Royale was one such act to get their hands on the vocals, working T-Pain’s piece “Do Wrong” into a smooth trap concoction complete with a dynamic drop, a thick bass-line, and robotic synths galore. Though seemingly meant for the festival dance-floor, T-Pain’s scandalous vocals soften the edges a bit of Bad Royale’s take, making it a good listen for virtually any setting that will accomplish its goal of amplifying a festive mood.
