T-Pain, Why Are You Using Autotune: T-Pain Performs His Hits Without Autotune [Sounds Good!]
Ever been curious to know what T-Pain sounds like without autotune? Well, I must say he has a beautiful voice. T-Pain does know that most of the time when artist use autotune, it's because they can't sing. This guy has pure talent. Why would he want to use autotune with a voice like that? I don't know if I'm really amazed, because I've never heard him without autotune, or because he has a great voice. I see him in a lane similar to Trey Songz and Jaime Foxx, without autotune. T-Pain did a little mini show at NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series. The Miami-based artist performed his strip-club ballads, "I'm Sprung," "I'm N Luv (Wit a Stripper)," and Buy U a Drink (Shawty Snappin')." If I would've known T-Pain had a voice like this, I would've respected him as an artist years ago. I remember being around the age 8, jamming to one of his songs. I believe the song was called, "Can't Believe It" featuring Lil Wayne. I honestly don't think it was the song I liked. It was mainly the visual, because I thought T-Pain was really silly, with the crazy hat on his head, and.. that was about it, but anyway..(Flashback Saturday) This guy's voice is amazing. If T-Pain ever plans on doing a show like this again, count me in! I've also noticed the 29 year old artist has a little sense of humor. He talked to the audience about how he was a little nervous performing for the first time without autotune or any effects, and how it felt so weird. Now, that I've actually heard his voice, I want him to do just one R&B album. He has the voice to do it, and it would really expand his branch as an artist. Oh, let me just shut up... Watch the performance below, and see what I mean than:
Not one minute did I doze off watching this performance. Once again, I'm really impressed.
