So apparently T-Pain can actually sing without auto-tune! Who knew? 

The rapper ditched his trademark style in a recent intimate performance, singing with just a keyboard for support and he sounds AMAZING! 

Covering three songs – “Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”, “Up Down (Do This All Day)” and”Drankin’ Patna” – his performance was definitely up to scratch. 

“People felt like I was using it to sound good,” T-Pain said in an interview that will air on All Things Considered.

“But I was just using it to sound different.”

We’re curious to know if he will ditch the auto-tune in any of his future hits and show us the full range of his talents? 


As a comparison here is “Buy U A Drank” in it’s original form.
