(AllHipHop News) Legendary performer Cher burst back onto the music scene in a major way in 1998. That year the Academy Award and Grammy Award winner released her number one single “Believe.” The track is credited as being the first commercial release to use the Auto-Tune software.
Auto-Tune would become an extremely popular technique, especially with certain Hip Hop stars. One of those artists is Kanye West. The GOOD Music boss famously implemented Auto-Tune throughout his 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak. He still uses the voice altering effect in his current music including recent songs like “Only One” and “Wolves.”
Cher revealed on Twitter she spoke to Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala earlier this week. According to the pop icon, Ye thanked her for popularizing Auto-Tune.
