For years, T-Pain had people question whether or not he can survive the music industry without auto-tune. He didn’t need to, the successful American rapper, single and songwriter, produced the majority of his songs and managed to receive hit singles from the seeds he planted.
See below, a list of some very successful T-Pain songs that not only hit the charts but won him two Grammy Awards.
1. Take Your Shirt Off
T-Pain here pays a bar to Pablo for his song ‘Raise Up’, putting North Carolina on the map.
2. Up Down (Do This All Day) ft B.o.B
Released in 2013, became not only the track of December 2013, but lasted up until the summer of 2014, showing up on radio Charts.
3. Bartender (ft Akon)
Featuring the legendary Akon, what a romantic way to sing to your new rebound post break-up.
4. I’m Sprung
