T-Pain surprised everyone recently by releasing his new album, ‘1UP’. ‘A Million Times’, featuring Long Beach raised rapper, O.T. Genasis, comes with a music video directed by Edgar Esteves and shot at Meow Wolf, in Santa Fe.
With ‘1UP’ we see T-Pain returning to form, breathing new life into hip hop, as referenced in the album’s title. When it was released it hit the number 1 spot on the iTunes Hip Hop Charts, and it includes the previously unreleased singles, ‘All I Want’, featuring Flipp Dinero, his labelmate on Cinematic; as well as ‘Getcha Roll On’, featuring Tory Lanez. There’s also collabs with Lil Wayne, Boosie Badazz, and many others.
‘1UP’ works on the success of a busy 2018, which saw T-Pain launch his new Fuse TV series, ‘T-Pain’s School Of Business’. He also hosted several episodes of Red Bull’s Remix Lab livestream show, with guests including Cardo, and MurdaBeatz. ‘School Of Business’ followed T-Pain as he investigated 18 of the most innovative, and unique startups, which are defining the future, and disrupting industries – just as T-Pain did himself, when he changed the course of music with his distinctive sound. Additionally, he was also featured on the soundtrack for ‘Lego Move 2’, with ‘Catchy Song’, which debuted on Good Morning America.
The video for ‘A Million Times’ portrays T-Pain pursuing a series of evasive women, who are on escaping him. The setting of the Meow Wolf immersive experience adds to the mysterious, “Alice In Wonderland” idea that T-Pain is chasing the white rabbit, who is constantly on its way to somewhere else, just beyond his reach.
