T-Pain Announces New Album “Oblivion”

It’s been more than five years since the release of T-Pain’s last full-length album, Revolver, so the public is in need of some Pain. As a huge fan of the autotune legend, news of an upcoming project made my day.

 

Titled OBLiViON, the new album will be arriving on November 17th. T-Pain made this announcement in an Instagram post describing a conversation that supposedly happened between him and a passenger on a plane.

November 17th #OBLiViON #GoalLine feat. @blacyoungstafb out now. #officialmusicvideo soon come

A post shared by T-Pain (@tpain) on

Most of the details of the album have been kept under wraps but his two recent tracks, “F.B.G.M” featuring Young M.A. and “Goal Line” with Blac Youngsta will probably be included in the tracklist.

 

In the past, T-pain’s never failed to deliver some incredible radio hits but I’m excited to see the artistic direction he takes with OBLiViON. His acoustic appearance on NPR Tiny Desk Concert was wildly popular and became the most viewed episode of the series. The video was so successful that the artist returned a year later to deliver a 27-minute concert for NPR Front Row in the same style. In August of this year, Pain even announced an Acoustic tour.

Does this mean that OBLiViON will be less dependent on vocal effects or will he continue the tried-and-true formula that made him a star? I guess we’ll find out in September.

#TBT: “Yo (Excuse Me Miss)” (by Chris Brown)

Another classic from C-Breezy in honor of #ThrowbackThursday. I miss the days when music videos had impressive choreography and synchronized background dancers.

Luke Christopher: Album of the Year

Luke Christopher released his debut album today…

TMRWFRVR might be my favorite project of 2017 so far. Don’t get me wrong, Kendrick is still king but Luke blew me away with this album. When I first heard Section.80, I saw something special. I get the exact same feeling listening to TMRWFRVR.

 

The beats are incredible and Luke’s voice fits perfectly over each, switching between rapping and singing with jaw dropping grace.

 

The awesome thing about this project is that each song feels like a completely unique masterpiece. I can’t even name standout tracks because they are all that good.

Click here to buy the album… You will be so happy you did.

Ultimate Party Playlist

I believe I’ve created the formula for the perfect playlist to get everyone on the dance floor at a party.

  1. All songs must be danceable… No slow jams.

 

  1. The lyrical content needs to fit the party atmosphere. Nobody wants to hear life lessons when they are drinking. There is a time and place for conscious rap and it isn’t at a party.

 

  1. At least 75-85% of the playlist needs to be made up of popular songs that people know. This doesn’t mean play only songs from the past two years. Look over the past 20 years and dig up some throwbacks. In college, I tried playing underground artists like Kendrick and J. Cole before they were popular. Unfortunately, this resulted in guests constantly requesting song changes. On the whole, people don’t want to be introduced to unfamiliar artists at a party. They just want something they can jam to.

Best Mashup EVER

Woah…

Two days ago, T-Pain appeared on “To The Beat With Kurt Hugo Schneider” and delivered a mind-blowing mashup performance.

T-pain’s by far one of my favorite musicians of all time. His NPR Tiny Music Desk performance took the Internet by storm and I hope this video receives the same well-deserved popularity.

Aloe Blacc – King Is Born

“King Is Born” is the first single off Blacc’s forthcoming album. It surfaced in a recent press conference promoting the upcoming Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fight. The fight is happening on August 26th in Vegas.

 

I think Aloe Blacc is the perfect artist for commercial purposes. Ten thousand dollars says the song appears in Marvel’s Black Panther movie.
