(AllHipHop News) Today (October 20) RCA Records announced that they will be releasing T-Pain’s fourth album entitled rEVOLVEr on December 6th this year.
The album includes the latest single “Best Love Song” featuring Chris Brown and “5 O’Clock” ft Wiz Khalifa and Lily Allen.
With the release, T-Pain looks to build upon his well known knack for making hit records.
“rEVOLVEr is drawn from seven albums’ worth of material,” said T-Pain. “There are so many different things on this album. I couldn’t settle on what I wanted to include, but the final result I think will really hit all of my fans and different audiences.”
The song “5 O’Clock” is Billboard’s Hot 100 Greatest Gainer, moving from #62 to #25 in its third week on the charts, and “Best Love Song” is already a platinum selling radio hit.
T-Pain is currently on tour with Chris Brown on the F.A.M.E. Tour which was just recently extended through November.
In 2008 T-Pain released the platinum-plus circus themed album Thr33 Ringz, but in 2011 T-Pain is looking to show more development in his music.
The title rEVOLVEr is said to “demonstrate the evolution of T-Pain as an artist.”
The past year was a busy one for T-Pain, who launched his own auto tuning software, as well as the T-Pain digital microphone.
Additionally, he collaborated with country star Taylor Swift on the song “Thug Story.”
“I’ve developed a new audience from the Taylor Swift stuff, the Bud Light and Toshiba commercials, the T-Pain Mic and App. There is music for everyone on this album, but definitely still classic T-Pain at the same time.”
The two time Grammy Award winning Tallahassee, Florida native made his solo debut on the music scene in 2005 with his album Rappa Ternt Sanga which produced the hit singles “I’m Sprung” and “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper).”
