T-Pain has solidified his comeback with his hit single, “Up Down (Do This All Day),” which serves as the lead offering from his upcoming, fourth album Stoicville: The Phoenix. But he has one track on the album that will serve up nostalgia for his fans.
In an interview with VIBE, the crooner revealed that he’s recorded a new song that picks up where he left off in his 2007 smash, “Buy U a Drink.”
“There’s one called ‘Drinking Partner,'” he says of the new track. “That’s a quality song. It’s basically a second ‘Buy U a Drink.’ It hasn’t gone down in quality for me. I actually listened to ‘Buy U a Drink’ and pretty much re-did it. I threw a little of that classic T-Pain in there while making sure that I can still do it today.”
So what’s the next single? “The reason I haven’t brought out a second single yet is because I got so many other ones,” he tells VIBE. “And I’m trying to figure out a way to have somebody valuable listen to the singles. But that’s taking longer than actually it took to record the damn songs…. But it’s a good problem to have.”
While he says that he’s “still recording songs,” Pain’s new album is slated to arrive later this year. It’s his first project since 2011’s Revolver.
