Published Mar 04, 2019Auto-Tune's Alexander the Great has graced the world with a new album. T-Pain's 1UP is a 12-track tape that he surprisingly dropped, his first in nearly two years.
1UP is a tight album, with songs seamlessly flowing as T-Pain sings and raps in his light, mellifluous voice over big, airy trap beats, with hangers-on from his decades-long career.
Opener "1UP" sets the tone with a positive, almost cheery T-Pain and Profit Dinero discussing how they cheer their success despite what they've had to do to achieve it. This is most of the content on this album, along with the singer talking about sex.
One of the standout tracks is "RIP to the Parking Lot" featuring Boosie Badazz. Its chorus starts with T-Pain backed by T-Pain heavenly crooning, "Rest in peace to the parkin' lot, yeah / Me and my niggas came and shut that bitch down / You know the club got my name on the parkin' spot."
This album is a refreshing sip of your favourite cocktail on a cool, winter's night. It warms you up and does exactly what you want it to. (Cinematic)
